Been trying and failing to read Shakespeare
A little failure here
A little tragedy there
And karma’s not a nice one
But it’s been waiting for its opportunity
Been trying and failing to keep off the beer
A little drink here
A little fall there
No, karma’s not a nice one
But it’s been hiding and camping out for weeks

Truth is the roof is caving in
Under this strain I’m living in
Fact is someday I’m going to stretch
My leg right out and kick the bucket

Been trying and failing to stay away
From little dangers here and little accidents there
‘Cause karma’s never been my friend
But it’s been hanging ‘round like it knows me
Been trying and failing to keep out of the way
Of little villains here and little menaces there
No, karma’s never been my friend
But it’s been living and keeping me company

Truth is the roof is caving in (Truth is I should probably fix this thing)
Under this strain I’m living in (I don't want to - I'm quite comfortable living)
Fact is someday I’m going to stretch (Like this - I can take the risk)
My leg right out and kick the bucket (Mmh, this ignorance is bliss)

Been trying and failing to get a life
Nobody sells them here and
I’m not going over there

Truth is the roof is caving in (Truth is I should probably fix this thing)
Under this strain I’m living in (I don't want to - I'm quite comfortable living)
Fact is someday I’m going to stretch (Like this - I can take the risk)
My leg right out and kick the bucket (Mmh, this ignorance is bliss)

Truth is the roof is caving in
Under this strain I'm living in
Fact is someday I'm going to stretch
My leg right
Out and kick the bucket
