lyrics

this morning is rough
all the birds outside can muster is a cough
the air outside is crippled by frost
memories of last night has been lost

i can hear the neighbors fucking through the wall
the walls are so thin that i can hear it all
i crawl outta bed to get the paper in hall
hope to read some good news thats all

this is the day i start drinking again
need something to cope with these avenues of shame
when I’m sober my body feels so frail
like a leaf deteriorated by the rain

I’ve seen this happened
a hundred times or more
my mind gets restless and my heart gets so bored
need to get my ass of off the floor
been a selfish man of late
need to be a good friend again

the line has been drawn and it is clear
its common place now to be guided by fear
what was so far away has never been so near
tell the mob that there’s a stranger in here

i hear the children yes they are playing in the park
minding their business but their eyes do spark
soon they’ll discover that the light of day can be so dark
that there wasn’t room enough for everybody on the ark

i really do need to change things from the core
i was mistaken when i first closed the door
what i discovered isn’t there anymore
need to try harder than i did before

but everybody needs a companion
someone to care for
someone to fall apart with on the floor
I’ve been a selfish man of late
need to be a good friend again
