  1. Charity

Words and music by Mitch Brookhyser and Danny Scholz

Lyrics

The chill of winter hits the streets
A recognition oh so many lack
These drifters lost without a home
Search desperately for some way back (repeat)
The hidden shadows of LA
Conceal the staterooms of hungry and poor
On streets they live from day to day
As backs keep turning choosing to ignore

So I give to charity
When I give to charity
The plea of lonely eyes and faces
Ask of me to see beyond my pride

The asphalt snakes through hidden stalls
All life’s possessions in a wire cart
To see beyond these concrete walls
Is so uncertain some can’t even start
So I give to charity
When I give to charity
The plea of lonely eyes and faces
Ask of me to see beyond my
You ask of me to see beyond my
You ask of me to see beyond my
You ask of me to see beyond my
You ask of me to see beyond my PRIDE!

A cardboard box a turning lane
Present reminders of our need to share
Decide before the signals change
For pride consumes us when we fail to care

So I give to charity
Yeah I give to charity
The plea of lonely eyes and faces
Ask of me to see beyond my
You ask of me to see beyond my
You ask of me to see beyond my PRIDE!
