It’s funny how these thoughts they never stay quite in my head. It’s the sound of The Weakerthans helping me through it once again. I’m not trying to make amends or meet goddamn requests. Give me time to think because the good lord is on the mend. It’s a knock from the hard knock life at my door once again. Hell it ain’t nothing I ain’t used to. Like my mistakes I let `em in. I’m not saying that life is shit. Well maybe after 10 p.m. Give me time to think because right now I’m on the mend. You’ll find nothing that you want with me. Nothing right now that you’d ever need. I said you best get on your way with me. Please don’t understate my diplomacy. I get feeling pretty lucky then it hits me every now and then. Like a broadcast casting out to sea to see where dead men swim. I’d be lying if I said I said “Things will get better before they end.” I’d be lying, you know I’d never lie. Momma always said she rose me right. Pappa must have gave me all his fight. Baby’s in the back room crying it out. Cousins in the bathroom smoking it out. Brother always gave me words that feel. My sister never made it out of here. God you know I’ve got this. I can do this, if I can’t do this I’m fucking useless. I can use this.
