Lyrics

Scavengers – A.Brown 2015

Pick it up pick it up pick it up and take it away
Nobody will miss it in the light of day
Under streetlights everything shines
Everything looks like gold

Picking at the bones of a long gone industry
Miles of copper wire missing its electricity
Behind crumbling walls ready to fall
There’s treasure to be sold

We are the scavengers
We’re only doing what works
We’re not all freaks, we’re not all jerks
We are the scavengers
And we’re just trying to get by
It ain’t stealing if it gets left behind


Pretty girls never fall in love with the junkman
Coming home in the morning with the cuts on their dirty hands
Everybody’s got their sharp edges
Everybody’s heart is plated in steel
Take a blowtorch to it see what it can reveal

We are the scavengers
We’re only doing what works
It might look bad but it could get worse
We are the scavengers
And we’re just trying to get by
It ain’t stealing if it gets left behind

Everybody’s got a little iron running through their veins
We all need to hustle to be worth our weight
Everything is precious if you’re looking hard enough
Throw it in the truck before it starts to rust
Throw it in the truck before it starts to rust
Everything is precious
Everything is precious
It ain’t stealing if it gets left behind
It ain’t stealing if it gets left behind
