Cold Melbourne morning
It's forty-five past nine
Kicked back, tram stop, looking at the line
Rubs his cigarette out
Chucks it on the ground
Puts his sunglasses on, just to go inside

He's got broken records
He's got cheap TVs
And I've gotten a little desperate, so he's got it out for me
An older man appears, asks if his wife's been in
He's answered with a no
But if you see her could you tell her
That she needs to come see me by 3:30
Patience is thin

Man says
He's got a photo frame
It's a family heirloom
And he's got his father's ring
Fuck mate you'll be lucky, if I can give you more than six more weeks
For everything

You can hear the old man choking on his words
You can see the broker chewing on a smirk
Well, what kind of man does that for work?
Not my kind of man

And if you finally run dry I can help you out with that
I'll give you the right price
I can change your life
I can see you're a surviver
What have you got to lose
Cos desperate folk like you have got no other choice
How do you think I make a profit?
