Song Description

giving up the fight

Lyrics

40 years if I'm a day
like a mule I drag this yoke
pulling slivers from my back
the dust so thick that I could choke
The baggage that I have today
are the things that help me cope.

I raise my children in the filth
forever stabbing like a sword
cutting peices from their minds
but at least they don't get bored
I can't say that I'm immune
to the pull of gravity
it sucks me down into the hole
it sucks the breath right out of me.

Today is the last day of the rest of my life.

Goodbye
my forgotten freinds
I hear we shared a brighter day
when we thought we'd change the world
but all that changed is
we went gray
Watching markets come to call
at the door of wasted youth
with the promise of success
but you and I-
we've learned the truth.

Today is the last day of the rest of my life.

Everything I have to write
Everything I have to say
seems like I'm pissing in the wind
feels like I'm throwing it away.
