Uncle Sam May Be No Help

"In The Middle", George Skala And The Great Americans (2011) www.georgeskala.com Hanging like a picture on the wall Hanging by a nail trying not to fall Yeah, I've been hanging in this place for oh so long Feeling like a mouse upon a wheel Spinning round and round, I’ve had my fill Yeah, I’ve been running for my life but standing still I’m in the middle, in the middle with you If it hurts just a little then it’s got to be true I’m in the middle just a face in the crowd It’s a long way up and a short way down I’ve been getting by on just a thread Paying all my bills like I’ve been bled And I’m feeding everyone before I’m fed With my own blood and sweat I’m in the middle, in the middle with you If it hurts just a little then it’s got to be true I’m in the middle just a face in the crowd It’s a long way up and a short way down Oh does anybody notice me, does anybody care Take a good look around I can see you there Feeling like a flag upon a pole I get ripped to shreds while I stand tall And my tattered flags been waving far too long I’m in the middle, in the middle with you If it hurts just a little then it’s got to be true I’m in the middle just a face in the crowd It’s a long way up and a short way down Long way up a short way down I’m in the middle, monkey in the middle Hurts more than a little being in the middle I’m in the middle, monkey in the middle I’m in the middle, yeah
