I've been sittin' here trying to find myself
I get behind myself I need to rewind myself
Looking for the payback listening for the playback
They say that every man bleeds just like me

And I feel like number one yet I'm last in line
I watch my younger son and it helps to pass the time
I take too many pills that helps to ease the pain
I made a couple of dollare bills still I feel the same

Everybody knows my name they say it way out loud
A lot of folks fuck with me it's hard to hang out in a croud
I guess that's the price you pay to be some big shot like I am
Out stretched hands and one night stands

Still I can't find love
And when the walls are tumbling down
I will always be around
Yeah

And when the walls are tumbling down I will always be around
People don't know about the things I say and do
They don't understand about the shit I've been through
It's been so long since I've been home

I've been gone, I've been gone way too long
Maybe I've forgotten all the things I miss
Oh, somehow I know there is more to life than this
I've said it too many times and I still stand firm

You get what you put in and people get what the deserve
Still I ain't seen mine, no I ain't seen mine
I've been given but just ain't gettin' I've been walkin' that thin line
So I think I'll keep a walking with my head held high

I'll keep moving on and only God knows why
Only God, only God, only God knows why
Only God knows why, why, why, why
Only God knows why

Take it to the river, hey
Take me to the river, hey

    General CommentI think the songs about some one whos just simply in a dark place in there life.

    because of an addiciton, relationships, death. etc

    And when your in that dark place you feel know one understands you. And you dont even understand your self.
    You dont feel like you use to (its been so long sense i've been home i've been gone i've been gone for way to long)

    No body knows why things like this happen turns out
    ONLY GOD KNOWS WHY.
