3 o’clock March 17th chilling at the bar
seeing how green my teeth can get before I score
but nothing seems to change no matter how I try
things just stay the same time just passes by
why do I wait so long its right in front of me
I think it’s behind the bong but that’s as far as I can see
And it’s hazy to look that far I’m so lazy I’d take my car
When all I’d have to do is concentrate and it would come to me

I’m so broke I can’t even pay attention
I don’t think that smoke is my only addiction

I just can’t get enough of what I’ve never had
Hard to believe with all this love I could still feel sad
But we all need a little something to get us through our days
A little past acquittal from what set us on our ways

You dig yourself so deep you become trapped inside
All those fear you keep confront you now with no place to hide

What do you do when your whole world caves in on you
Where do you go when there’s no place left that you know
What do you say when everything turns out this way
To who do you cry when you’ve got no answers to why
Or what or when or where or how its supposed to be

You got to look inside yourself put everyone else on the shelf
It’s the only way to drop this misery
You’ll find that what’s inside will be the only guide you need
Now you see

A better feeling when I put down the phone
Suddenly I don’t feel so alone
I want to stand up and run to the door
Get in my and put the gas to the floor
If I were smart I’d hop into that ride
But the one time I did was the time that I died
At least I tried

We all gotta try sometimes or else what’s the point of life
If you decide to take that chance you better stick it like a knife

There’s no second chance for mistakes
One imperfection is all it takes
To drop the ball and what are you gonna do
What you need is a definite plan
You gotta stand up and be the man its true

A tough position to be in I know
Some things you gotta take with a blow
To the nuts then stand there with a grin
Spread your legs and let em kick you again

You can’t let down your guard or they’ll shit all over your yard
I know it sucks but that’s the way its gotta be
So if you’ll just take my hand I’ll lead you to the promise land with me
Now you see
