Let me go sleep on a park bench
Let me go eat from the dumpsters
Let me go sit on the sidewalks and beg
Let me go play my guitar on the corner
And hope that someone will come along
And drop a dollar into my hat
Let me go live on the streets
It's what I deserve
Let me go jump off a bridge
Let me go hang myself from a tree
Let me go jump off a tall building
Let me go jump out in front of a semi
Let me get run over by a train
It's what I deserve
After all the shit I've done
No matter what I do
No matter how hard I try
No matter how much I care
I only keep fucking shit up
Sure I did my time, all fourteen months of it
Sure I'm a changed person, according to the public eye
It still doesn't change all the things I've done
It still doesn't take away my victims' bad memories
It still doesn't take away the fear
That I put into their hearts, which will never, ever, go away
It still doesn't take away the pain of knowing what I've done
So put a gun to my head and pull the trigger
Because It's what I deserve
