I've been sittin
With the weight of the world
On my shoulders
And I'm feelin' like the sweat
Off the back of some slave
Layin' tracks with the sun in his eyes
And I'm drifting
Down the path of the swamp
That I've swallowed
And I'm beating off the scales
That belong to a snake
Come at me with blood in his eyes

But hey it's alright
It's alright, it's alright
Ya know I made it through
Another day

Well I'm steamin'
As I wade through the broth
In the belly of an overripe monkey
Who screams with disease
As the worms crawl in through his eyes
And I'm bleedin'
Through the cracks in my face
As I wallow through the salt of rejection
That eats through my knees
Reaching in to pull out my spine

But hey it's alright
It's alright, it's alright
Ya know I made it through
Another day

Well I know I'm headed for a breakdown
I know the time is right
I know I'm headed for a breakdown
I know the time is right
But yeah
You gotta keep on pushin' forward
'Till you reach the risin' sun

But hey it's alright
It's alright, it's alright
Ya know I made it through
Another day

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright
I made it through another day.

Well I know I'm headed for a breakdown
I know the time is right
And I know that she will come to me
