Can't really say its been a good year, I know I've seen better days
Some things that shouldnt have been going on around here been going on anyways
See, I was face down in a pool of my own self pity
Gotta pick myself up, get outta this city
Gotta leave before I hurt someone

There's a place somewhere I'm gonna find
Where I can feel safe, leave it all behind
Gonna get away, have myself a little fun

Cause you can knock me down, run me over
Back up and run me down again
You ain't the first, I've been treated worse
Guess I oughta be more careful choosing my friends

Well you can leave me cold, I'll recover
Say nasty things about my mother
You can beat me, mistreat me
But guess who'll be Smilin' In The End

Playin' in bands since I was a kid
Always part of the brotherhood
A lonely only child, only barely understood
I was told I'd never make it so many times before
The best and the brightest had shown me the door
But the more they tried to hold me back, the stronger I got
They said my songs were too simple, my voice was too weak
I was too young, too dumb, too much of a freak
They thought they could write me off, there's something they forgot

Oh, you can knock me down, run me over
Back up and run me down again
You ain't the first, I've been treated worse
Guess I oughta be more careful choosing my friends

Well you can leave me cold, I'll recover
Say nasty things about my mother
You can beat me, mistreat me
But guess who'll be Smilin' In The End

I won't say I ain't had my share of good luck
Hey, good luck is fine, it just ain't enough, no it ain't enough

Cause you can knock me down, run me over
Back up and run me down again
You ain't the first, I been treated worse
Guess I oughta be more careful choosing my friends

Well you can leave me cold, I'll recover
Say nasty things about my mother
You can beat me, mistreat me
But guess who'll be Smilin' In The End

Guess who'll be smilin' in the end... Guess who'll be smilin in the end.
