    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

    – Joker
