I don't know you
And you don't know the half of it
I had a starring role
I was the bad guy who walked out
They say be careful where you aim
'Cause where you aim you just might hit
You can hold on to something so tight
You've already lost it


Dragging me down
That's not the way it used to be
You can't even remember
What I'm trying to forget


It was a dirty day
Dirty day


You're looking for explanations
I don't even understand
If you need someone to blame
Throw a rock in the air
You'll hit someone guilty


From father to son
In one life has begun
A work that's never done
Father to son


(And love...it won't last kissin' time)
(And love...it won't last kissin' time)


Get it right
There's no blood thicker than ink
Hear what I say
Nothing's simple as you think


Wake up
This is something you can't get around
I'm in you
More so when they put me in the ground


These days, days, days run away like horses over the hill
These days, days, days run away like horses over the hill...
[Repeat and fade until end]
