lyrics

(Schwartz)

I'm trying to reach you, my friend
Don't you want these means to your ends?
Cause I see you float on and out
Don't you want to get turned around?

Cause I see this happen every damn day
I know what they think and I know what they say
“That I'm not worth nothing, I'm wrong every way
But that's who I am, and that's who I'll stay.”

Said that's not the right way to go
Trust me son cause I know
I'm the same as you
Just without all the blood and tattoos

Said “you don't know nothing about me and my friends
We got the streets while you got the pens.”

Don't talk like that or I'll send you away
Said that's where you'll go, and that's where you'll stay

Oh I'm tired
Tired of lies
And I cannot work
And they cannot win
So I'll sleep now
Sleep till the end
To pay my own bills
And let it begin
Again

I want the rains to come wash me away
Take up my roots but save what they save
I think it's important, though wrong every way
But that's who I am, and that's who I'll stay
