lyrics

When it first happened
He heard laughing
The words trapped in
The absurd action turned as curd does
Ask him
Air sour shared in a shower of stares
The power to dare
A coward to devour a hare
Wearing a sheep’s skin
He peeks in and sees the company that keeps him
Blunted on the hunt they seek weak men
Running on the train for the hundreds and change
With money to claim
Let’s see them take it from me again
On the weak end

Say you will
I’ll believe you can help me survive
My excuses
Say I can
And remind me that I’m still a man
A man
A man with choices

With his brim slanted
His slim standing grinning within
Handed his jim to the kid at the window
Implanted
Sin branded his kin
A lantern as dim
As the answers we spin on CNN
What are we here for
Call him a friend when it calls you again
The drawls we defend falling to the floor on our men
The porn
Or the pen writing on the walls we suspend
We tell ourselves we’ll never do it again
On the weak end

Say you will
I’ll believe you can help me survive
My excuses
Say I can
And remind me that I’m still a man
A man
A man with choices

Now I don’t know what’s more useless
The truth when it’s truth-less
The youth’s only enemy
Wasted energy and excuses
Always with somebody to blame
In a lottery sorry you're the only body to claim
Now there the proof is
Now tell me where the roof is
I’ll tare a hole in it before I ever leave my true friends
And don’t even question me on family
The weak end can’t handle me
