Too Giving To My Neighbor

I hear folks saying it.
To know their words are true.
People have gotten fed up,
With 'gimme' attitudes.
And this is very clear,
To see with eyes and open ears.

'I've done enough today for two days.
I've done enough today.
I've done enough today to say,
No one else co-pays.

Too giving to my neighbor,
Of time I can't afford.
And every other week I'm asked for money,
Like I have it stored.
I'm too dedicated to hope.
Too dedicated to faith.
I'm too dedicated to people who can't,
Carry their own weight.'

Carry their own weight.
Too giving to my neighbor,
Of time I can't afford.
And every other week I'm asked for money,
Like I have it stored.'

I hear folks saying it.
Over and over again.
That there is a need for a unity.
With an awaiting to be paid,
From their own brothers and sisters...
For that unity said wanted.
But can't do without funding,
That process to begin.

'I've done enough today for two days.
I've done enough today.
I've done enough today to say,
No one else co-pays.
I'm too dedicated to hope.
Too dedicated to faith.
I'm too dedicated to people who can't,
Carry their own weight.'
