A Sad Man Livin' A Sad Life


If ever I find out what's wrong with me

I'll be able to tell you what my problem is

As I head out into the world

I leave behind my hopes and dreams

Because they cannot be achieved

Nothing but nothingness

Circles around my ife

Creating chaos

And breaking my heart on a daily basis

Ev'rything that I thought I knew

Turns out to not be true

And like a sad man

__livin' a sad life

____I trap myself

______under a rock

________that I can't get out from underneath

When I slip and fall

__I die a deathly death

And when I can't wake up

__there's no chance for love

Temper tantrums

__I may throw

As getting older

__becomes a chore

Thee impossibilities are endless

And the drama never stops

The show get drastic

And thee enemy gets desperate

__to continue to ruin me

And, I

The trash of society

Collect so much dust

__that all I do is rust

I don't care to hear what all the fuss is about

So I don't look around my surroundings

__to find out

My future only shrinks

And misfortune only grows

The more I laugh about it all

The more crazy I look

And which ever lady I meet

I know she is not gonna make a move

I'm just not that kind of man

__that that happens to

But I cannot get offended

__by a God that deformed me

____into an unlovable being

He must've made me into a freak

__for some kind of reason

Yet, I'll probably never know

__what that reason was

It is unchangeable

And it is life

Just as imperfect

__as nature can be
