She used to love me but it's
Over now
That was a good thing that's
Gone man, gone

I pass the hours
Just to get by
Talk to the dogs
So I know that I'm alive

I never thought that I should quit
All the stupid crazy s**t that I do
In the name of
Keepin' good things away

Some things you can
F**k right up
Other things
Well, you better not s***w up
My problem was
That I could not see
What was important
Right in front of me

I never though that I should quit
All the stupid crazy s**t that I do
In the name of
Keepin' good things away

How much longer, man
Before they surf?
It's here today
But it's gone man, gone

The epitaph scratched upon my stone:
"Here lies a man who just wanna be alone"

She used to love me but it's
Over now
That was a good thing that's
Gone man, gone

I take small comfort in a
Dying world
I'm not the only who's
Feelin' this pain
