lyrics

There ‘s nothing to do in my town
You can sit around and get drunk all the time
Lazy or hard working I’m a jerk in disguise
Telling my lies, living my lies beneath my disguise

There’s nothing to do in my town
You can sit around and smoke all night
And I know a kid where smoking is his only life
Every time he lights up he says, "this is my life".

And all of my friends need women
to make them feel good
I myself can use anything you got
so give it here to me

I make them laugh I make them cry
I don’t know why
And I’m trying to quit
but it’s the same old shit
You here all the time
And I know a kid where crying is his only life
Every time he crys he says, "this is my life".

And all of m friends need something
to make them feel good
I myself could use a woman right now,
yeh, I myself could use a woman right now

My friend told me about the girl he had last night
And I’m thinking he shouldn’t say that about her,
that aint right.
But he’s trying to quit
and it’s the same old shit you hear all the time
And I know a girl where feeling guilty is her life
You know when she sins,
she confesses and this is her life
And then she goes to the booth
and says, "Hey father, this is my life,
You know I’m trying to quit but it’s the same old shit you here all the time."

And all of my friends need something, yeh
And all I need is anything.
