Everybody wants to be
The one who gets to be
The one who says they finally set you straight
But I set you first
And I set you worst
And you said
You were just
On your way out

Well everybody bow your head
Cause everyone else is dead
And that usually sends the mood south
And naysayers all run
Your work here has been done
And I see they finally got their hands on you

Well everybody's sayin'
These times are a stayin'
Exactly where they've been
Nobody's walkin'
Everybody's comin' in
I don't know where I'm going
I think that it's time to begin

Some dreams lie in bed
And some dreams lie ahead
And some dreams just lie to get their way
The best parts just got worse
The real parts got rehearsed
And you said you were just on your way out

And some men just have plans
And some men just have hands
And some men just have a way with words
They smile through their gold teeth
But they can't ?
And I see they finally got their hands on you

Well everybody's sayin'
These times are a stayin'
Exactly where they've been
Nobody's walkin'
Everybody's comin' in
I don't know where I'm going
I think that it's time to begin

Everybody's sayin' it's time to come in
But I've been here before
?
Don't wanna get a late start
And I make this up
And I fill my own cup
And I lost my eyes
And I can't see much
Found myself stumblin' in the dark
And it comes to me
Almost every night
And it kisses my lips
And it tastes just right
And I ask it to stay
But it just goes
Away

Well everybody's sayin'
These times are a stayin'
Exactly where they've been
Nobody's walkin'
Everybody's comin' in
I don't know where I'm going
I think that it's time to begin

The love from your lovers
Your dreams just may ?
Well everybody talkin'
Cause evrybody knows
Everybody's singin'
That's the way it goes
YeahI think
Yeah I know
Yeah It's time
It's time to come in

    General Comment"But I've been here before
    ?

    ? = This isn't the end

    "The love from your lovers
    Your dreams just may ?"

    ? = die, son
