well i don't take candy from the blind
and I don't look down when I get high
I do what I do and I do what I can
I'm the big mistake in my own plan

she's like the city never sleeps
she talks in words between the lines
she breaks the promises she keeps
she keeps reminding me off mine

well I been messed up for so long now
I guess I'll never understand just what
it is or how it feels to be a disappointed
man.

well I dream my dreams in double time
I'm the master of my own decline
she tries to open up my mind she
talks in tongues in danger signs
I take what I need to get me by
and I don't take candy from the blind
I don't look down when I get high
don't take no advice from the bullshit guide

well people will do anything to make them
feel like they belong, its not about the prizes
or the laws or right and wrong
we've all done our time for petty crime
wrote our share of bad luck songs
the punchline is we're all fucked up
you got to wake up now cos its wont last long
you got to wake up now cos it wont last long
dont want to be a disappointed man
don't wanna be a disappointed man
