Well I was just where I was supposed to be,
working the straight job- so eager to please.
Man, I am just where I thought that I ought to be.
Keeping that face on in spite of what I think.
It really only takes one second off the cuff,
wrong place and time- maybe shitty luck.
You might crash and burn or you might have it all,
the trouble in your mind will still cast it's shadow long.
Man I was just where I was supposed to be,
not an easy job knowing when not to speak.
Man I am stuck where I know that I have to be,
to keep our lights on and be a family.
