I got these thoughts in my head,
Dirty as fuck and never leaving,
And they're best left unsaid,
All the drinks on your breath,

Got some shit off my chest,
Threw it on my back next to the monkey nest,
That somebody left,
With me the day I was born,

I got a hole in my head,
The size of Lake-fuckin'-Michigan,
My pipe's lined in lead,
Got old school reasons to die,

All my money's been spent
On a facelift via alcohol,
As this sinner repents,
To an empty bathroom reflection,

Please take these words,
And do with them what you would like,
The dream I had, it drove me mad,
It's just your time, it's just my fucking life,

I got a bottle in hand,
Straight to the ground with all my memories,
It's best left unsaid,
When they've all been left behind,

All my money's been spent,
On a DIY lobotomy,
This sinner repents,
To a lake and bathroom mirror,

Please take these words,
And do with them what you would like,
The dream I had, it drove me mad,
It's just your time, it's just my fucking life,

So take these words,
And do with them what you would like,
The dream you had, it drove me mad,
It's just your time, it's just my fucking life,

And that's my life,
Over and over again,
It's just my fucking life,

It might seem meaningless to you,
But it means everything to me,
And I'm fucked without you,

Please take these words,
And do with them what you would like,
The dream I had, it drove me mad,
It's just your time, it's just my fucking life,

And that's my life,
Over and over again,
It's just my fucking life.
