        They seem they’re you’re friends, and maybe they are
        From the man dealing cards
        To the gal at the bar
        The sights and the sounds, make you feel right at home
        But deep in your head you are still all alone
        A wager or two just to pass up the time
        Again and again ’till you’ve spent the last dime
        You’re up then you’re down
        Till your head spins around
        You’ve had the last turn, time to get out of town
        The friends give a smile as you exit the gate
        Your pockets are empty, you’re full of self hate
        What they don’t know, is you’ve just lost the rent
        You’re walking away having lost every cent
        They say you’re a fool, no one made you go in
        They say its your problem, you know it’s a sin
        That may be true but the lost can still win
        Beware of all this and go look for new friends
