Gil Scott-Heron - Pieces of a Man Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • Jagged jigsaw pieces
  • Tossed about the room
  • I saw my grandma sweeping
  • With her old straw broom
  • She didn't know what she was doing
  • She could hardly understand
  • That she was really sweeping up..
  • Pieces of a man
  • I saw my daddy greet the mailman
  • And I heard the mailman say
  • "Now don't you take this letter to heart now Jimmy
  • Cause they've laid off nine others today"
  • He didn't know what he was saying
  • He could hardly understand
  • That he was only talking to
  • Pieces of a man
  • I saw the thunder and heard the lightning!
  • And felt the burden of his shame
  • And for some unknown reason
  • He never turned my way
  • Pieces of that letter
  • Were tossed about that room
  • And now I hear the sound of sirens
  • Come knifing through the gloom
  • They don't know what they are doing
  • They could hardly understand
  • That they're only arresting
  • Pieces of a man
  • I saw him go to pieces
  • I saw him go to pieces
  • He was always such a good man
  • He was always such a strong man
  • Yeah, I saw him go to pieces
  • I saw him go to pieces
