I heard you got robbed last week
Did you know I got shot last night?
It's like dependency on a game called hearsay
You hear it said but did you hear it right?
So I was walking the bricks in my front yard
They're uneven and cracking with age
I made an attempt to arrange them perfectly
But when I got done they wouldn't fit into place
And I can't say when
I plan on giving up
I'm trying to think
Don't know when it will end
I heard a rumor you went on a trip
Did you know I just got back?
I had a chance to think while I was away
I pointed fingers of blame
Until they were pointing at me
So I rode my temper until I heard the water
But I hit a fence that was chained and barred
I looked and tried to find another way in
That's when I finally realized
That I'd been trying too hard
