"Smothered" as written by and Waters....
I can't tell, I think I might be going crazy
Just wanna leave it all behind
I've been on the brink for many years, I'm thinking
Feels like I'm running out of time

I'm getting sick and tired
Giving everything I've got
I get nothing in return
I can't breathe

[Chorus]
This never ending madness
Raining down on me
Like a ton of bricks
Face in the dirt

Childish delusions, they say it's just a fantasy
You're no good, no chance, you'll never learn
Just give it up and come back to reality
Your dreams are none of my concern

I'm getting sick and tired
Giving everything I've got
I get nothing in return
I can't breathe

[Chorus]

What do you think you're doing with your life?
You should be ashamed of yourself
I don't know why you just don't give up
You got these ideas, these dreams
Aha, what? You're nothing but a loser

No wonder you get no respect
You're not smart enough
You don't speak the right language
Your skin is not the right color

You're too tall, you weigh too much
You're too short, you're too fat
Why don't you give up your stupid ideas
And do something right for once

Lined up one by one
They try to bring you down
Don't ever listen what they say
Determination, the battle will be won
And all the pain will go away

I'm getting sick and tired
Giving everything I've got
I get nothing in return
I can't breathe

[Chorus]

Yeah,

I'm getting sick and tired
Giving everything I've got
I get nothing in return
I can't breathe

[Chorus]

    General Commenti think that this song is about bullying and prejudice... at the beginning and the chorus it seems to speak about how the victim feels and then progresses to the words of the bully or intolerant person and at the end it seems to be a message from dave or jeff telling the victim to stand strong and that one day this will be over and they will be fine
