You know that bad luck will eat you up
Whens it gonna end?
I twisted everything I could out of words
In real life my colors never blend

When I was a boy I said to myself
That I'd never lean on anyone else
Ohh, but I was wrong, yea I was wrong
And then my mother took me by the hands and then

Oh, oh how I prayed
That the good Lord would come and take me away
From this mess of a life that I'm in
And I fell to my knees oh and I cried
As the lightning rose up from the earth to the sky
In this wreck of a life that I'm in
In this mess of a life that I'm in

Come on you got a lot to give, a lot to live for
And hope it all gets better
You twisted everything you can out of anything
I know it's gonna get better

And I'm so sick and tired of lying around
We're all waiting for someone to light up this town
Oh, it won't be long, it won't be long
And I know I should have left town but I stayed

Oh how I prayed
That the good Lord would come and take me away
From this mess of a life that I'm in
And I fell to my knees oh and I cried
As the lightning rose up from the earth to the sky
In this wreck of a life that I'm in
In this mess of a life that I'm in

Oh and it feels like I'm writing a book and I can't get inspired
Sometimes It seems that I'm breathing in smoke
And my lungs are so tired
Oh well I'll just sleep it all off
And then hope that it don't get me fired
And I'm asking you please

Oh oh how I prayed
That the good Lord would come and take me away
From this mess of a life that I'm in
And I fell to my knees oh and I cried
As the lightning rose up from the earth to the sky
In this wreck of a life that I'm in

And oh how I prayed
That the good Lord would come and take me away
From this mess of a life that I'm in
And I fell to my knees oh and I cried
As the lightning rose up from the earth to the sky
In this wreck of a life that I'm in
In this mess of a life that I'm in

In this wreck of a life that I'm in
In this wreck of a life that I'm in
In this mess of a life that I'm in
In this mess of a life that I'm in
In this wreck of a life that I'm in
In this wreck of a life that I'm in
