lyrics

Well he doesn’t stare into the sun no-more
The feelings gone so he shuts the door and takes a piss
Counting wishes on his fingers one, two, three who’s the person in the mirror looking back at me
How did life get so tedious?

Well his father loved him ‘till the age of seven
When momma ran into a tree and went to heaven, he woke up cold
On a dirt floor with a river running through
Papa said, “Son, it’s up to you. You’d better not let me down Boy”

But the world keeps spinning around
That’s one thing you can be sure of
Like the stars above
What goes up must surely come down

So he hit the city to see what he could see
Looking dapper as a king bee, he made a splash
With a charm and hustle that was hard to beat, working his way to the top of the heap
At night his wife would pour him up a bubble bath

But the world keeps spinning around
That’s one thing you can be sure of
Like the stars above
What goes up must surely come down
Well the kids they think he’s alright
He tries to be a good Dad
He wants to make them
He’d love to see them smile

But it don’t matter no what he does
You can’t buy loyalty and you can’t buy love, just do the math
Everybody wants to ride the gravy train, the sun is sinking and it looks like rain
You’d better let me off before we crash

No he doesn’t stare into the sun no more
The feelings gone so he shuts the door and takes a piss
That’s right

And he doesn’t stare into the sun no more
