I've been down and I've been out
I washed up when I thought I would drown
I've been down and I've been out
Never flown so high with both feet on the ground

I've been walking in circles, all my life
Chasing my own tail
I've got a penny in my pocket but the rest of my change
Is down at the bottom of the well
I've got my mind made up but what I can't figure out
Is how am I gonna leave my mark
When all I've got left is doubt

I've been down and I've been out
I washed up when I thought I would drown
I've been down and I've been out
Never flown so high with both feet on the ground

I've wasted my time all these years
Just looking for a little bit more
But it's hard to keep your new shoes clean
When all you've got is dirt on the floor
And I've hit rock bottom with some good friends of mine
We sat and watched the sun rise but we never saw it shine

There's a man on the radio says he's got it all worked out
He's got a show on the road but he don't know
What it's all about

I've been down and I've been out
I washed up when I thought I would drown
I've been down and I've been out
Never flown so high with both feet on the ground
