What It's Like

Lyrics

We've all seen a man at the liquor store beggin' for your change
The hair on his face is dirty, dread-locked, and full of mange
He asks a man for what he could spare, with shame in his eyes
"Get a job you f**king slob," is all he replies

I like this song. I think more people need to hear it, but I don't doubt some mindless idiots just listen to it for the tune and pay no attention to the lyrics. More people need to think about the meaning of this song, it's not that hard to understand but if your a bully or a bad person it could just pass you by.

Over six million people on Pandora like this tune by Everlast. I believe that's the most I've ever been a part of...
I wish people knew what its like to be me

It's time for people to stop pretending like they don't know the difference between right and wrong. This is a good song, but only in the context that it has a good beat and relatable lyrics. Humans are far too eager to let go of their innate moral compass, and sacrifice it for what's quick and easy. This song only highlights the most egregious problems associated with humanity - primarily Americans.
Forever Everlasting!
Amazing song and lyrics
Good song but why is it on my slipknot station
Great song

I need to move to orgn..no s**t man!! No jobs just hills around here. Can't walk to get a beer!! I'm from southern WV.
Doesn't matter if they're innocent or not. It's about understandin g the perspective of those who are less fortunate, and putting yourself in their shoes before opening your mouth and judging others.
Does it matter if they put themselves in that situation. Is it always intentional? Can't things get out of hand?

Radman i think you're really missing the point of the song. Are you them? Do you know what it's like?
Not comment below- not necessarily, we don't know their life story
The problem with this song is they all put themselves into these situations. They aren't innocent like Everlast makes them seem.
