lyrics

Well I woke up this morning
With the Devil in my head
Dirty shoes still on my feet
And teeth that taste like gin
Another night lost to a world
Of war and senseless pain
And the more I try to change it
The more it changes me

Well there's a lot of hungry people
Who are barely getting by
And I wish that I could help them
With the problems in their lives
I'd pick them up and feed them
And send them home again
But all too soon they're on the street
And back on the gin

I know that there's a better way
But there's nothing I can give
Here's another empty bottle
For the souls I couldn't save
I'm trying to be a better man
Still looking for some grace
As I wander through this lonely life
Another wasted saint

Well I met a man who told me
He could pray my sins away
And I'm sure he did the best he could
But still I feel the same
A bit too loud, a bit too proud
A bit too drunk to see
That all I need is for some light
To come and shine on me

I know that there's a better way
But there's nothing I can give
Here's another empty bottle
For the souls I couldn't save
I'm trying to be a better man
Still looking for some grace
As I wander through this lonely life
Another wasted saint

I know that there's a better way
But there's nothing I can give
Here's another empty bottle
For the souls I couldn't save
I'm trying to be a better man
Still looking for some grace
As I wander through this lonely life
Another wasted saint
