I've got a little time upon my hands today
But nothing I can do to make it go away
Cause I can't see the point in even wakin' up
When nothing I can do is good enough

You tell me that it hurts you when I waste my time
Livin' every minute just a step behind
But what's the point of running when you can't keep up
Nothin' I can do is good enough

I'd be the first to tell you I can get movin' faster
But its hard to find you way before you know what you're after
So give me just a minute
Take a little time
You'll find out what you're missin' isn't far behind

So still you never listen to a word I say
All you ever do is look the other way
But how long can you push before I just give up
Nothin' I can do is good enough

And someday when you wake up and listen to reason
You'll find out you're the only one that you've been deceivin'
So why you point your finger at somebody else?
The only way you'll work it out is by yourself

So darlin' let me tell it to you one more time
As if something I could say would ever change your mind
Cause I can't see the point in even wakin' up
Nothin' I can do is good enough
Nothin' I can do is good enough
Nothin' I can do

Mad Hatter
Avenged Sevenfold
Matt Shadows their lead singer says the song was written as per request from the developers of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Watching the initial trailers for the game & looking at production sketches reminded him of the 'S-Town' podcast & its main protagonist, John B. McLemore. Matt also comments specifically on the lyrics: "I decided that the lyrics would shadow McLemore's life." In 2012, antiquarian horologist John B. McLemore sent an email to the staff of the show 'This American Life' asking them to investigate an alleged murder in his hometown of Woodstock, Alabama, a place McLemore claimed to despise. After a year of exchanging emails & several months of conversation with McLemore, producer Brian Reed traveled to Woodstock to investigate. Reed investigated the crime & eventually found that no such murder took place, though he struck up a friendship with the depressed but colorful character of McLemore. He recorded conversations with McLemore & other people in Woodstock. McLemore killed himself by drinking potassium cyanide on June 22, 2015 while the podcast was still in production. In the narrative of the podcast, this occurs at the end of the second episode; subsequent episodes deal with the fallout from McLemore's death while exploring more of McLemore's life & character.
