Lucky strike refinery

Top dollar bottom drawer
I pick myself up from the floor
only to get kicked back
down again.

Same old
nothing ventured but
we’re all being sold
bit by bit coin
raise your hand
if you want the promise
of the promised land.

I want nothing more than to be
top dollar bottom drawer
without the kicks being
aimed at me.

up fit and fighting
out for the night in
nothing but my charm

the trick is
to keep out of harms
way.
