I am not a bad man
I want you to know
I signed up when I was 19
Now 24 years old

There's ghosts that follow me around
Things I've seen and did
But I am not a bad man
Just an American kid

I bet you see a stranger
When you look at me
When I look in the mirror
I know that's what I see

Got some pills to get my head right
But they don't work so well
So I drank a little more tonight
And here is where I fell

I bet you see a stranger
When you look at me
When I look in the mirror
I know that's what I see

I just want a little sleep now
A sleep that's silent as snow
But I am not a bad man
I just wanted you to know
