Woke up again
To my chagrin
Getting sick and tired of
Feeling sick and tired again
I tried to write
'Cause I got the right
To make it look as if
I'm doing something with my life
Got to find a vein
It's always the same
And a drink to ease
The panic and the suffering
I woke up again
Dreamt of Gunga Din

Oh, the road is long
If you stay strong
You're a better man than I
You've been beat and afraid
Probably betrayed
You're a better man than I

Woke up again
To my evil twin
That mirror is ****ing ugly and I'm
Sick and tired of looking at him
Been up all night
I probably picked a fight
'Cause I can't help it I'm
A bastard in the morning
So I try to write
I think I have the right
A little drink-y now and then
To help me just to see the light
Just another day
And it feels like nothing's changed
Oh f*** it
Oh here I go again

Oh, the road is long
If you stay strong
You're a better man than I
You've been beat and afraid
Probably betrayed
You're a better man than I

What's the point in you now
I can't chase you know how
Oh, leave me alone
I've got those Monday blues
Straight from Sunday blues

Oh, the road is long
If you stay strong
You're a better man than I
You've been beat and afraid
Probably betrayed
You're a better man than I

La la-la la, la la-la la, la la-la la la
La la-la la, la la-la la, la la-la la la

Oh what are you doing, you stupid f*** idiot
Wake up
Hey
