lyrics

When I was younger and my mother tucked me in/ roll over as dark crept in/ and wait for the creatures inside of my head to start up again/ over and over they toiled through me/ drown it out now with smoke and drink staring at the walls barely blinking/ the years are gaining on me now and I've nothing to show but disagreement/ some care too much that I could care less/ maybe that's the difference between us/ I don't worry about the world because the world don't worry about me/ just give it some time and maybe you'll find yourself running back to the bushes, back to the trees/ kings will sit on their riches and the poor will go on hungry/ I'll still be searching for something/ just to get me by as the pieces are coming unglued/ the world is coming undone/ the world is coming undone/ still working at a job I hate making just enough to pay the bills and sedate myself/ my mental health is falling faster than a bombshell in a brothel/ so tired of the daily charade/ play along so that I can go home and hate myself/ all for a few cents acquired wealth/ it ain't worth it to me/ I write songs but nobody is listening/ paint the walls but it just ain't the sistine/ juggle all my dreams in front of someone for anything oh/ this collar is killing me/ every way that I stretch almost tears at the seams and I'm afraid that my dreams will be dead at the scenes by the time that I get there/ kings will sit on their riches and the poor will go on hungry/ I'll still be searching for something/ just to get me by as the pieces are coming unglued/ the world is coming undone/ the world is coming undone/ the world is coming undone/ but girls just want to have fun.
