I never thought I'd see eighteen
I finally got all eyes on me
My daddy made my sentencing
Now there's a first for everything

Don't ask me what comes after today
Don't ask me what comes after today
Sweet Emily's eyes are all that I've been thinking of
Don't ask me what comes after today

You must be proud, your conscience is clean
I'm just what you'd expect I'd be
There's plenty bad to be said for me
But I never been your judge, I never been your judge

Don't ask me what comes after today
Don't ask me what comes after today
Sweet Emily's eyes are all that I've been thinking of
Don't ask me what comes after today

What's yours to take for free out 'round here
Is a bullet and a hundred years
But dream a dream might not be yours
Keep your head down, boy, keep your head down, boys

Don't ask me what comes after today
Don't ask me what comes after today
Sweet Emily's eyes are all I'm thinking of
Don't ask me what comes after today

Nobody means for the gun to go off
Nobody wants it this way
Nobody sees how the deal went bad
But the ones living it everyday

Up on 145th
You can see the bridge but you can't cross the way
I've been scared before, I've been scared before
No matter what you are, you get used to the chains
No matter who you are, you get used to your chains

Don't ask me what comes after today
Don't ask me what comes after today
Sweet Emily's eyes will be all I'll be thinking of
Don't ask me what comes after today
