I can't See The Whole Picture

-

Can't get high

For tonight

Can't sing a song

That y'all would like

I do not know

Where I will be

When I grow old

I just wanna see the whole picture

So I can know ev'rything

But I am too dumb

Oh

__the complication

Such

__a sifistcation

Why am I in Hell?

I'm not the man I want to be

"Ev'rybody knows"

It's just too hard for me to see

Beyond in front of me

I've got something to be

But I can't be it

Life's too short

To waste it on eduacation

Going nowhere

Cracking up

Before earning a degree

I want a future

But my madness stops me

How can I be anything?

I've done nothing right

I don't have a life

I have lost my wife

I don't wanna die

But that's just life
