You, you try, you try to get by,
You're never going to pull it off,
You shouldn't even try.
You're a wet cigarette,
You're always second best,
They're never going to give a shit about anybody but themselves.
So you fight for them to realize,
There's more to life,
There's more to you,
There's more than meets the eye.
And when you're done, the battle's been won,
You sit back, you smile,
And this is what you hum, you hum,
Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh,
Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh.

You, you try, you try to get by,
You're never going to pull it off,
You shouldn't even try.
You're a wet cigarette,
You're always second best,
They're never going to give a shit about anybody but themselves.
You fight for them to realize,
There's more to life,
There's more to you,
There's more than meets the eye.
And when you're done, the battle's been won,
You sit back, you smile,
And this is what you hum, you hum,
Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh,
Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh.

(Years!) go by, the time it does fly, (Whoa oh oh)
Every single second is a moment in time, (Whoa oh oh)
That passes oh so quick, and it seems like nothing, (Whoa oh oh)
But when you're looking back, well it amounts to everything,
(Whoa) I've got myself, I've got my friends, (Whoa oh oh)
I've got my little family, but that's not where it ends, (Whoa oh oh)
This one goes out to you, it goes out to everyone, (Whoa oh oh)
It's in the name of honesty because life has just begun.
Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh,
Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh.

Look around little brother can you tell me what you see?
You're a big boy now, so take responsibility,
You never had it hard, but now it's getting tough,
So you (whine! whine! whine!) and you say you've had enough.
You say I'm full of shit, that I'm a hypocrite
I shouldn't talk when I can't take the advice that I give,
Well maybe you're right, but open your eyes:
The main difference here is that I (try! try! try!)

Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh.
Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh.

Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh.
Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh.
