it’s all a game some play for fame.
Some put thier companions to shame.
some say they came, saw and conquered.
I say it’s all lame.
I hate it.
you hate your job, wonder what it’s all worth.
Digging your own grave, talk about paid dirt.
curtains close, shows over, rumor is you went the same way as Kurt.
no one at the funereal, know you don’t hurt.
I can’t be late
beginning in your ending.
drugs help you cope with the day, reality bending.
sunrises, another day you’ve spent sinning.
diggin your future grave, your boss, he’s grinning.
work the weekend, he’s got golf to be winning.
fuck being great
first day of school.
they call you the fool.
everyday your stage, play it cool.
take one too far, they start to drool.
look in the mirror and to reveal the real fool
you’re only eight.
summer after summer stuck in class.
No grades to pass
10 years later, time gone too fast.
all those classmates they blew past
this next one takes the cake.
local town bummer.
Stuck in the hot Georgia summer.
stealing and looting sure beat your pockets being dumber.
hit the gas station, burning rubber.
turn the corner, it’s officer sumner
it’s a sad song you cover.
it’s only fate
world spins, suits grin.
Clowns frown all over town tellin stories bout how you got in.
Pastor says a new way everyday while you’re in the pin
Possessions, passions, passed to next of kin
A judge away from forgiveness of sin
too bad you got the wrong color skin
it’s only hate.
you try and tell.
they ring the bells.
you slip, they never forget you fell.
no way up from this living hell.
it’s ain’t the pearly gates
pastor preaches acceptance.
while expecting full blown repentance.
you tell him you need god, he tells you about man made sacraments.
Gods independence lost in man made deliverance
it’s only fate.
rich poor, don’t matter to me.
Don’t care what you be.
only care how you see what you see.
you wanna be on TV?
titties better be double dees
society profiting off of difference like brand equity
sows division like it’s what it means to be free.
you see I’m just like you, only I’m me.
I’m only a little jaded
