Some nights I stay up cashing in my bad luck.
Some nights I'll call it a draw.
Some nights I wish that my lips could build a castle
Some nights I wish they'd just fall off
But I still wake up, I still see your ghost
Oh Lord, I'm still not sure of what I stand for
What do I stand for? What do I stand for?
Most nights, I don't know... Anymore!

This is it, boys, this is war, what are we waiting for?
Why don't we break the rules already?
I was never one to believe the hype - save that for the black and white
I try twice as hard and I'm half as liked, but here they come again to jack
My style

That's alright; I got a martyr in my bed tonight
She stops my bones from wondering just who I am, who I am, who I am
Oh, who am I?

Well, Some nights, I wish that this all would end
'Cause I could use some friends for a change
And some nights, I'm scared that you'll forget me again
Some nights, I always win, I always win

But I still wake up, I still see your ghost
Oh Lord, I still not sure of what I stand for
What do I stand for? What do I stand for?
Most nights, I don't know... (so come on)

So this is it? I sold my soul for this?
Washed my hands of that for this?
I miss my mom and dad for this?

When I see stars that's all they are
When I hear songs, they sound like this one, (so come on)
(So come on)

Well, this is it, guys, that is all - five minutes in and I'm bored again
Ten years of this, I'm not sure if anybody understands
This one is not for the folks at home; Sorry to leave, mom, I had to go

Who the f**k wants to die alone all dried up in the desert sun?

My heart is breaking for my sister and the con that she called "love"
But when I look into my nephew's eyes...
Man you wouldn't believe, the most amazing things that can come from...
Some terrible lies... !
Some terrible lies... !
Lets go!

The other night, you wouldn't believe the dream I just had about you and me
I called you up, but we'd both agree (we'd both agree)
It's for the best you didn't listen
It's for the best we get our distance
