Standin' at the peak, lookin' to the bottom
It all falls down watchin' Summer turn Autumn
Autumn comes cold, cold comes Winter
everday's a struggle just to stomach my dinner

Nickel in m'pocket, burnin' up a hole
sell another ticket just to watch it burn slow
slow comes quicker, liquor runs dry
dryin' off my boots to deliver my high

lyin' in the kitchen, lookin' at the sky
sky's too low fer me to even try to fly
flyin' in a box, never worked well
the well's dried up "no water for sale"

Drownin' in the bathtub trynna get clean
cleaned up quick but the dirt is so mean
kicked me up a cloud, waited for the rain
only rained five minutes then it slithered down the drain...

Well either way you run, you can't run too far
the key's all crooked but yer lookin' through the bars
bar's too high, so when you come down
all you got left is a lonesome sound...
