"Better Days" as written by and Richard Davies....
In my shoes my toes are busted
My kitchen says my bread is molded
I got a good job at the dollar store

One foot in the hole
One foot gettin' deeper
With a broken nail and a blown out speaker
I ain't got much else to lose

I'm faded, flat busted
Been jaded, I've been dusted
I know that I've seen better days

One foot in the hole
One foot gettin' deeper
Crank it to eleven, blow another speaker
And I ain't got, I ain't got much to lose

'Cause I've seen better days
I've been the star of many plays
I've seen better days
And the bottom drops out

I've seen better days
I've been the star of many plays
I've seen better days
And the bottom drops out

Now, my cup's filled up with five buck wine
I find myself here all the time
Another rip in the glass
Another chip in my tooth

Rained on, I've been stained on
Found another goat I try to put the blame on
And now I'm steppin' on all the cracks
So I guess there ain't no use

'Cause I've seen better days
I've been the star of many plays
I've seen better days
And the bottom drops out

I've seen better days
I've been the star of many plays
I've seen better days
And the bottom drops out

I'm bent like glass
Second hand like glory
Missed the bus but I'm in no hurry
Molasses fast, no business born

One foot in the hole
One foot gettin' deeper
Crank it to eleven, blow another speaker
And I ain't got, I ain't got much to lose

I've seen better days
I've been the star of many plays
I've seen better days
And the bottom drops out

I've seen better days
I've been the star of many plays
I've seen better days
I've seen better days

I know that I've seen better days
(And the bottom drops out)
I've been the star of so many plays
(And the bottom drops out)

I walked on the edge without a hold whole way
(And the bottom drops out)
'Cause I know, I know that I've seen better, better days
(And the bottom drops out)

    General CommentI downloaded this from Limewire and it said it was from Citizen Cope, not Citizen King. It doesn't really sound like Citizen Cope, but who knows.
    Hmmm.
