Real Fucked Up


I'm just a boy

Because I'm obviously not a man

Or I'd have somebody

"To call my own"

Well, love is not fair

'Cause I am unlovable

Well, I don't see my name

On a Section 8 waiting list

I don't see my name

On any woman's body

I must of had fun growing up

'Cause now I'm poor

I live with my parents, without a car

No job will hire me

'Cause I gotta compete

No woman will date me

'Cause I gotta compete

I look at all the people

So happy with their perfect lives

Their perfect lives

And their perfect cars

Parked in perfect driveways

At their perfect homes

I don't see me razing no children

I don't see myself with someone

Saying "I do" with

"Life in this town"

Is so damn low

Draggin' me to the ground

Everywhere I go

I don't see a hand in my hand

I don't see me having sex again

I don't see a meaning in writin' this

I don't see a meaning for living this

Real fucked up life I live right now
