Payback is overdue
So much for the I.O.U.
My head is stuck underneath God’s thumb
I guess that makes me the lucky one

Stupidity is a constant trend
Murphy and I have become best friends
Hooray for dreams gone before they’ve come
Hooray for me I’m the lucky one

I am the lucky one
I am a comedian
the jokes on me, I’m the lucky one

A sinking ship, holes in my lifeboat
I’m sorry for choking but I’ve got a wishbone stuck in my throat
I never thought this could be such fun
Hooray for me I’m the lucky one

I tried to jump straight through the suck
Headfirst but now my freakin head is stuck
I’m feeling like a stupid schmuck
Lucky for me I don’t believe in luck
Thank God I don’t believe in luck

Rusted linings on my black clouds
It’s raining piss, will somebody tell me what’s that all about?
Wish on a Blackstar until it comes
It’s here for me, I’m the lucky one

I am the lucky one
I am only human
I guess that makes me the lucky one

    Lyric CorrectionI think it's:
    "I tried to push straight through the suck
    Head first, but now my fuckin head is stuck!
    I'm feeling like a stupid shmuck,
    Lucky for me, I don't believe in luck!"

    and instead of "It's here for me", it could be "It seems for me I'm the lucky one."

    Overall an AMAZING Klayton piece. Is it just me or does he sound incredibly emotional when he's singing "I am!" towards the end of the song?

    My Interpretationat first i took the lyrics for face-value, but from about 2:30 to 4:30 with the

    --"I tried to jump straight through the suck
    --Headfirst but now my freakin head is stuck
    --I'm feeling like a stupid schmuck
    --Lucky for me I don't believe in luck
    --Thank God I don't believe in luck"

    lyrics make me think it's more of a "tongue in cheek" song - in other words, klayton saying "i'm really goddamn unlucky - but i don't really BELIEVE in luck, so i'll make the best of it"

    LOVE THIS SONG.
