I'll post the lyrics to this board tomorrow.  They are currently available on the lyrics board. 

Be forewarned --  turn your speakers down a little.  For some reason, this is real loud on the reverbnation site. 

                   The Likes of Us

Anywhere in time and space   --   Is there no place for the likes of us? 
Hard luck follows faith and trust.  --  Heritage and history – trampled into dust.

Pre - Chorus: 
Dispossessed by the cannon and the gun,
Cause there’s not room for everyone. 
No room for the likes of us.  –   No room for the likes of us.

Chorus: 
Swindled and dis-inherited  –  Displaced and kicked aside. 
A bitter past repeats itself  –  in all the same damned lies


Out there in the darkest night, is there no light for the likes of us? 
Always how it seems to go  --    No one bothers.  No one cares to know. 

Pre - Chorus: 
Dispossessed by the cannon and the gun.  Too little room for everyone. 
No room for the likes of us.    –   No room for the likes of us.

Chorus: 
Swindled and dis-inherited  –  Displaced and kicked aside. 
History repeats itself  –  in new updated lies.



Bridge to out: 
Never any room for the likes of us. 
No room for the likes of us.
No room for the likes of us. 
Never any room for the likes of us.

Very interesting. For a moment I thought this was a famous score song for a movie.

Well done, hardtwistmusic.

I like it. Very idiosyncratic. Painful but relieving at the same time. Music very interesting

That is a very interesting observation/comment. 

What kind of movie?

"Interesting" is a good word.  So is "idiosyncratic." 
I wrote the music first. . . a variation on a standard 12 bar blues chord sequence, then found it so unusual that I looked for a lyric to bring it back toward something more generic. 

I'm still too close to the writing to objectively "hear" how it has turned out.  Your input gives me some really good perspective as to how it sounds. 

Thank you very much.
