The Sweet Life

This song is by Every Time I Die, features Matt Caughthran of The Bronx and appears on the album New Junk Aesthetic (2009).

Yeah, I know I look worse for the wear.
But I have everything at my fingertips.
I've been infantilized by a pat on the back and an endless go-ahead.
Ain't nothing gonna break my stride. Ain't nothing gonna slow me down.
Oh, no. When there's no one disapproving.

Yet it's women, not lack of ambition, that keeps good men bedridden.
Jesus Christ, I am forever making the same mistake.

I'll continue to stumble around as long as everyone cheers me on.
Am I the only one without the weapon to end the war?
Ain't nothing gonna break my stride. Ain't nothing gonna slow me down.
Oh, no. When there's no one disapproving.

Yet it's women, not lack of ambition, that keeps good men bedridden.
Jesus Christ, I am forever making the same mistake.

Deaf men in a city of sirens.
Blind men in the presence of snakes.
I told you.
But I'm adrift in a sea of temptation.
I told you.
A newborn with inadequate skills.
I told you.
Turn the party up, honesty be damned.
How fucking pathetic of me.

I can't go on this way.
Not when I have your heart.
Oh, what a childish life I have led.
God, what a wicked man I have been.
But ain't nothing gonna break my stride. Ain't nothing gonna slow me down.
Oh no. When there's no one disapproving.
