i find myself
searching for the soul i once had
watered down the smoke inside me i've become a no-mad
there's been no body oh for sooo long now
i want me back but i just don't know how
well it's the same old story of a young boy
he's a, one filled with dreams
whoa but the fortune of reality
was a ripper adversy

if he's gonna make it
he's gonna do it on his own
well he's one strong mother fucker
he's toppled the sides alone

he will be done, before he ever understands
why is he trying, and why must he go on
when you have what you need
but not what you want boy
you aint gonna make it long

in the dark day he's dealing
but in the lights is where he stands
he's got no hope of his future
for a, his hard working hands

if he's gonna make it
he's gonna do it on his own
well he's one strong mother fucker
he's toppled the sides alone

well thats been
a narrower bridge i've seen
fucking his life up again
leaving it full of sin
cause we are the ones who give a damn
we are the ones who give a damn

if he's gonna make it
he's gonna do it on his own
well he's one strong mother fucker
and he's toppled the sides alone

    General CommentAs you get older, life can beat you down and this song is about just that. I know I was happier and care free when I was younger and now I'm a mess. And as you get older you face temptations that test your morals and beliefs.

    "Well he's one strong mother fucker, He's tougher than Sly Stallone"
    Gotta love that line.

    General CommentAwesome song, caddies are mad good... but I don't understand some of the lyrics, and I've tried finding other lyrics only to find the same thing on every damn site, so can someone clear some things up for me?
    I know he doesn't sing:
    whoa but the fortune of reality
    was a ripper adversy

    could "a ripper adversy" be mistaken for " a rippin at the seem"?
    and:
    he will be done, before he ever understands
    he definitely doesn't sing "he will be done", could it be "it will be time" or something?

    I already know the "tougher than Sly Stallone" mistake, if anyone can clear it up u'd be doin me and possibly many many more a huge favor...
