Cash Machine — Hard-Fi

Cash Machine — Hard-Fi

Go to a cash machine
To get a ticket home
Message on the screen
Says don’t make plans, you’re broke
No, no this can’t be right
I know that time is tight
I’ve only just been paid
It’s been three weeks five days
‘Til I’ve seen right
No

I scratch a living, it ain’t easy
You know it’s a drag
I’m always paying, never make it
But you can’t look back
I wonder if I’ll ever get
To where I want to be
Better believe it
I’m working for the cash machine

I try to phone a friend
My credit’s in the red
I try to skip the fare
Ticket inspector’s there
No no, this can’t be right
I live an honest life
It seems like sometimes
You don’t cross the line
You don’t get by
No

I scratch a living, it ain’t easy
You know it’s a drag
I’m always paying, never make it
But you can’t look back
I wonder if I’ll ever get
To where I want to be
Better believe it
Yeah

What am I gonna do
My girlfriend’s test turned blue
We tried to play it safe
That night we could not wait
No no, this can’t be right
She said it would be alright
I can’t afford to be a daddy
So I leave tonight
No

I scratch a living, it ain’t easy
You know it’s a drag
I’m always paying, never make it
But you can’t look back
I wonder if I’ll ever get
To where I want to be
Better believe it
I’m working for the cash machine
Cash machine
Cash machine

There’s a hole in my pocket
There’s a hole in my pocket
There’s a hole in my pocket
There’s a hole in my pocket
Yeah
