Dead end job at the dead letter office
I seem so sad but I'm so sick, so sick
Dead end life with a bad plan, grand scheme
Don't you know that I'm doing the best I can?

I know I made decisions
I am wrong
Oh, I know I made the wrong decision
I am wrong

So you wonder, wonder how
How I get here, got here now
Well, I put on my shoes and socks
Goddamn if I walked here tick for tock
So you wonder, wonder how
How I get here, got here now

Dead end job with the dead letter office
I seem so sad but I am so sick, so sick
Dead end life with a bad plan, grand scheme
Don't you know that I'm doing the best I can?

I know I made decisions
I am wrong
I know I made that wrong decision
I am wrong


So you wonder, wonder how
How I get here, got here now
Well, I put on my shoes and socks
Goddamn if I walked here tick for tock

I know I made decisions
I am wrong
I know I made that wrong decision
I am wrong

    General CommentHe clearly says "I am home" instead of "I am wrong" on some parts.

    General CommentAre you retarded Dragon1629? There is more at the start than this. Take the time to get it all before you post a little bit of this song. He says I believe "Get a job at the devils office......" there is more and it is hard to determine but do your research...............ASSHOLE!!!!

    General Commentwhen in life, when the bad one brags on, looking out, but im doing the best i can...

    it doesnt make too much sense but maybe someone could toy with it and listen to the song and get back to correcting these lyrics

    General CommentI think these are the correct lyrics.. at least what I hear =]

    Get a job at the deliver office
    sounds so said but I am so sick, so sick
    dead in life, with the bad blank prankster
    hope you know that I am doing the best I can

    oh, I know I've made decisions
    oh, I am wrong
    oh, I know I made the wrong decisions
    oh, I am wrong

    you say you wonder wonder how
    how I get here, got here now
    well I put on my shoes and socks
    goddamn If I walked here, tif or tock
    you say you wonder wonder how
    how I get here, got here now

    Get a job at the deliver office
    sounds so said but I am so sick, so sick
    dead in life, with the bad blank prankster
    hope you know that I am doing the best I can

    oh, I know I've made decisions
    oh, I am wrong
    oh, I know I made the wrong decisions
    oh, I am wrong

    you say you wonder wonder how
    how I get here, got here now
    well I put on my shoes and socks
    goddamn If I walked here, tif or tock

    oh, I know I've made decisions
    oh, I am wrong
    oh, I know I made the wrong decisions
    oh, I am wrong.
