I’ve done things that i'm proud of and things that I ain't
It all goes to ground in the end
From winner to sinner, from ass-hole to saint
I've got no desire to make amends
So sit down beside me and I'll pour you a drink
Tell you a story or two
About how I was lost in the maze, couldn't think
Couldn't act, I didn't know what to do

I searched for the answers inside and out
From bar-room to self-help to skin
But I never found better than thinking it through
And learning to live with the sin
Only a fool would consider his life to be
More than a fleeting affair
No more will I let down the people I love
And the people who care that I'm there

Now I'm down on my knees and I'm starting to pray
I'm begging you please, show me the way
Yeah, I'm down on my knees and I'm starting to die
God wasn't listening to what I had to say
I’m gonna say it to him anyway
Said "what were you thinking you crazy old fool?
I've lost all my faith in, I never had faith in
I will not have faith in the things that you say"
Now let's all go back home

Well this is my confession of all that I know
And all that has yet to be done
The answers are questions, the truth is a lie
And trust means nothing to no-one
I've taken the drugs and I've had all the fights
Everything stays just the same
With feverish passion I've fought for the right
To refuse to kill and to maim
Sit down beside me and I'll pour you a drink
Tell you a story or two
About how I was lost in the maze, couldn't think
Couldn't act, now I know what to do

I'll say no to the violence and no to the war
No to corruption and greed
No to the money and no to the law
Loving is all that I need

Now I'm down on my knees but I'm refusing to pray
I'm begging you please, stay out of my way
Yeah, I'm down on my knees and I'm refusing to die

God wasn't listening to what I had to say
I’m gonna say it to him anyway
Said "what were you thinking you crazy old fool?
I've lost all my faith in, I never had faith in
I will not have faith in the things that you say"
Now let's all go back home
