From the recording Tonight at the Stop & Go
$50 in lottery tickets tonight at the stop and go, speaks to the desperation of this guy I know. 5 an hour all day long, tonight he lets it roll, on $50 in lottery tickets down at the stop and go.
A luke-warm Coke and a pack of smokes perched upon the curb, scratching away at his daily wage with a button on his shirt. All the time working, migrating with the birds, a luke-warm Coke and a pack of smokes perched upon the curb.
He's got a trust in the angels and a recklessness of hope that I may never know. And thought the cards are stacked against him as I guess they've always been, I pray for the luck tonight to see him win.
