She abandoned me, left out in the cold
No surprises, I guess that's how it goes
Sits across from me in a booth in this dive
I contemplate how much more I can survive

But how I'm alive, so I should be content
Then tell why the hell my whole world is bent
I was sent to make and frustrate the population
In between the alcohol and the copulation

What you callin' it, if you build it I will break it
What's wrong, how you doin'? Nah, save it
Gave a fraction of all I had to give
I guess I hold a grudge 'cause you still got my rib

With cha beautiful eyes, inscrupulous lies
Now watch this circus clown run around in circles and try
Seems like all I get to eat is Hope
Girl, if we got along better we'd be dope

(Oh walls, they surround me)
(Loneliness has found me)

And for as much as I complain, I'm lovin' it
And I only mention it so that i can rub it in
Wake up to the sunlight, shake off last night
Check what's left and try to get the rest right

Decision splitting, headache lifting
Symptoms matching, mama was afraid of it
Knowledge of self ain't as evil as they made it
Call it what you want, if you build it they will break it

The plain truth, there's no substitute
But sometimes she wears a disguise-yes you do
A storyteller deals with life not Hope
Girl, if we got along better we'd be dope

And that's the sound that a dog will make
When he's just been hit with a car
And that's the tone that hits close to home
When the cocaine outlives the star

And that's the noise that disrupts the boys
When the q-ball packs the bowl
And these are the words that disturb the earth
When I walk away with your Hope

(C'mon, let's go)
