lyrics

I woke up just like any other day but I seem to be missing something real. I've come a ways since the days when I was younger wishing... But even now I'm wishing for something real

I think I've been wishing for some perspective to come and rain down on me
To teach me what it's like to live

I watched my dad and grandad before me as they drank their way through bottles of family glass as they got impatient with themselves.
From "get off my case" to "it's not your place"
I learned that it's not so simple, to
beat an enemies brick wall that may just be your own.

And you'll still reap what you sow

Then try to make it out alive, without the benefit of having anyone else by your side. With your one boy on your right and your little girl on your left, life's throwing curves and you're still swingin'.

You always did the best you could for us.
But some would say that it's not enough.

But who the hell are they anyway?

I watched my dad and grandad before me as they drank their way through bottles of family glass as they got impatient with themselves.
From "get off my case" to "it's not your place"
I learned that it's not so simple, to
beat an enemies brick wall that may just be your own.
