lyrics

Well, I think that I've gone crazy
See my head's been such a mess.
I've got nothing in my pockets,
And I keep dead plants as pets.
When I see the sun it burns my eyes
because I haven't been out for days.
You ask me how I wound up here?
Just let me count the ways.

It might be one for the money and two for the liquor
I'm runnin through a jungle that keeps getting thicker.
I slip and fall but after all I guess it could be worse!

Because it's a long way down to the bottom of the pit we've been drinking ourselves in.
All the efforts we made for the short-lived pay goes to show you never can win.
And we can't seem to find no reason or rhyme why we should ever stop.
Been climbing this mountain for many years and I still can't see the top
So come on down!

I think I need another, to get me through the night.
Because every time I close my eyes my nightmares come alive!
I've got skeletons in my closet, monsters underneath my bed.
seems like nothing in this world could kill those voices in my head.

But it might be one for the money and two for the liquor
I'm runnin through a jungle that keeps getting thicker.
I slip and fall but after all I guess it could be worse!

Because it's a long way down to the bottom of the pit we've been drinking ourselves in.
All the efforts we made for the short-lived pay goes to show you never can win.
And we can't seem to find no reason or rhyme why we should ever stop.
Been climbing this mountain for many years and I still can't see the top
So come on down!
