Tricks, I've pulled some good ones in my time
And games, I've played 'em with the best of minds
I filled my pockets full of silver and gold
Then walked out on love when love left me cold
Now I'm a man in a bottle, a bottle of tears
Caught up in a heartache, drowning in fear
Im a man in a bottle of tears
I battle my way to the top and I bottle my way to the bottom

Fame, I had my friends, I had it all
And what a shame, there's not a soul that I can call
They all love me when I'm acting the fool
But now they look at me like I'm no longer cool
'Cause I'm a man in a bottle, a bottle of tears
Caught up in a heartache, drowning in fear
Im a man in a bottle of tears
I battle my way to the top and I bottle my way to the bottom
Oh, I battle my way to the top and I bottle my way to the bottom
