Another day, another dollar, another bill collecting caller. Disillusioned, let down, all my heroes are junkies now.
I've been down this road, in the end it's all the same, Another day I'm getting older,
Another day nothing has changed.
I've been down this road,
I'm wrong when I know I'm right,
Hard pressed to make it better,
But I got no will to fight.
28 and I'm flat broke,
I've been down so long I have given up hope.
Shattered nerves anxiety, so much more that I wanted to be.
I often wonder what went wrong, but I can't remember, it's been too long.
Think out loud things I want to change, but I know I never will,
I'm gonna stay this way.
Is this my great reward, servitude and solitude, a lifetime of chances I have blown.
I woulda coulda shoulda been so much more than I really am, and it's nobody else's fault but my own.

    General Commentive heard this song, these guys have an amazing amount of talent and i respect them very much, these lyrics are really good as well. this song is about the people who are more than average but because of their own fallacies, they are much less than what they should be. it happens all the time
