lyrics

Former Glory
With Anita Clark

Music Buda // TPF
Words Buda

I was born in darkness
Behind the Iron Curtain
Lining up for flour
Drunk on people power
And vodka
Yes. They gave vodka to a child

I came across the ocean
On a wave of mixed emotion
Found a kind of Eden
Now I’m high on personal freedom
But I’m drowning in debt

Learning to talk again
At the age of almost ten
I had to fight for justice
I had to fight Darryl
Cause he took my lunch
My sandwiches
And he stomped on them
Hey Darryl!
You got exactly what you deserved

(You got a bleeding nose man)

This is no made up story
About my former glory
It’s a little exposé
I guess all I’m trying to say is
It ain’t easy to find your way
For the immigrant

Things got cool in high school
I got a cherry strat and it totally ruled
And just hanging out in the weekends
Started a band with my best friends
And it was this band

(Been going for a while now)

This is no made up story
About my former glory
It’s a little exposé
I guess all I’m trying to say is
It ain’t easy to find your way
For the immigrant
