a good man doesnt drink, well ive been drinking alone
so what does that make me?
my hands they always shake and no ones calling my phone
so what does that make me?
and i know the kid with his guitar so drunk and anxious
hes been done to death but tell me what hasnt and ill try it
because im selfish enough to wanna get better
but im backwards enough not to take any steps to get there
and when you realize its a pattern and not a phase
its what youve become and its what you will stay thats ballgame

well theres a clamp around my chest that tightens
everytime i laps into another sorry story
about my miserable collapse a bronz box i keep incased in glass
and dust off whenever i want your pity
cause lately ive had to come to grips with scope
and figure how my problems stack up in a world two steps from ruin
well everyone says its rapture, well either way i realize
my shits about as small as it could be wich makes me feel worse
for even feeling this bad in the first place

(in the live version he strums then mutes where theres a *)
(and lets ring where theres a ~                           )
