Do you know what it's like to have none?

Do you know what it's like to have none?
When food is scarce and water is rationed.
When the bills stack up high
and life to you is just a notion.
Do you know what it feels like
to be out there in the cold?
Or the times when you were a kid
and not always feeling this old?
Have you ever come up short of cash
and your cards don't work?
You have to squeeze with the rest
to inhale pollution, noise and dirt?
Was there a time you knew
what it meant to have a little less,
To eye the glamorous life
you could only guess?
It doesn't really matter if you think
having it all is the ultimate run,
Because even when you have everything
you could still have absolutely none.
