This is a song for all those who feel faceless, whether that’s because you keep putting your soul on the line and sending off manuscripts to editors who never reply or you are someone who has been ignored by the system. Love and acceptance is out there but sometimes it starts from within.
“Coffee Stained Rejection Slip
Man in the street down in the lip
Selling subscriptions for channels you never knew you wanted
Babe Station, it’s a new nation
Enter your credit card details into the box below
Lo and behold
That’s where they found him, hanging around pound shops looking for used items
Grounding up Tramadol, dreaming of his big parole
Fearing that life inside is safer than on the outside
Yet the greatest threat is undoubtedly the mind
It can be unkind
Especially for the hard of thinking
Especially for the hard of thinking”
