I Know I Can't Change Ev'rything, But Can I At Least Change SOMEthing?

-

The grounds that I walk on

Don't want me to walk on them

I've got no one else to blame for that

Because everything is my fault

Why I can't work for a dime

Why I can't be more than "single"

Why I don't have any close friends

Why I'm getting fatter and fatter

Why my teeth are going out

Why I can't get any dentures

Or false teeth

Why I can't afford to drive

Why my 20's are all gone

Why my brain cells have burned away

Why I want what I want

When I want it

But all in all

It's all about "me"

And it's not supposed to be

If I could just get out of myself

Life might get more normal

But some things

Like a lot of them

Are too late to do anything about

I have fallen like a mouse from the sky

And soon it will be time to die

And if no changes have been made

I will have wasted my time

With no using to blame for it

Being clean and all now

The life of a falling mouse

Doesn't turn itself around

So what's gonna happen?

What's gonna change me if not myself?

The future today looks like shit to me now

Because nothing is going on

To fix me

Just another thing

That's all my fault
