lyrics

What have I made what have I done
In moments of fine feeling?
And when my rage was speaking through my mouth
What curses did i exclaim?
And when I swore that I would die
What came alive within my soul
And my brains
That i would live to see another day?

Well I've seen my share of jaded faces
And lions in a cage
And I've seen my share of stressful places
Out there working for the wage
And when you're broke and still must toil
It's like watching water boil
When your standing
Right with the pot up to your face

Working shifts that numb your brains
And grab you by the reins and run you
Down down down
Into the ground
Till the next man takes your place

And when i feel the wind against my face
I wonder what is grace?
To have it all
Or have nothing and never want in the first place?
I came so far what have I chased
And if I never find it there
Shall I think
That all my running was a waste?
