Spit Shining Shit

I was awake, dreaming about sleeping
And my mistakes, and how I keep ‘em
So close to me, so that I’ll never forget,
I can’t get anywhere

Shedding tears over these bottles
Celebrating life at the bottom
Of the barrel of a barrel so rotten
And I’ve forgotten
What this was like before I started stopping

Fuck this, I’m out of bullshit to cry about.
Pass these “fuck you”s around.
I’ll be dead and gone when this shit hits the crowd

Tell me why I even tried tonight
I should just let it die.
And I’m tired of waiting for this shit to shine.

I was asleep dreaming about palm trees
And I woke up to dirty city streets
I heard the voices echoed in the back room
And I had to walk around the corner to the barstools
Where I was
Shedding tears over these bottles
Celebrating life at the bottom
Of the barrel of a barrel so rotten
And I’ve forgotten
How to light this fire
I’ve forgotten
How to toe this wire
I’ve forgotten
What shit was like before I started stopping

Tell me why I even tried tonight
I should just let it die.
And I’m tired of waiting for this shit to shine.

I am tired of waiting
I am tired of waiting
This is my life this is my time
It’s time to take it
Don’t let it die.
