lyrics

Everyday is a chore
I cannot take it no more
I’ve got no job and I’m poor
and my determination is sore
Lady luck is a whore
and she’d stopped knocking at my door
I can barely remember
when we were together.
It just seems so long ago…

(Chorus)
My will’s frazzled, my brain’s rattled,
I go insane everyday I do battle;
there’ll be more sorrow, of this there’s no doubt,
but the posture of grief is chin up and chest out.

I’ve got no shoulder to brace
the solemn weight of my face
and I feel like a disgrace
my mind’s all over the place.
These heinous winds I’ve endured
have knocked me down to the floor
and I can’t seem to pull
myself together.
It just seems all too much for me.

(Chorus)
My will’s frazzled, my brain’s rattled,
I go insane everyday I do battle;
there’ll be more sorrow, of this there’s no doubt,
but the posture of grief is chin up and chest out.

New years and the summer, they both stole your heart,
but the devil and his woman will have you play your part
as the lowly unexpected victim of despair,
there are a million men just like you,
but that don’t mean you shouldn’t care.

I drown my sorrows in drugs
but are narcotics enough…?
I just wake up feeling rough -
I think this all is too much.
This may be the end
but that all depends
on how I hold it
all together.
But there ain’t much that can pull me through.

(Chorus)
My will’s frazzled, my brain’s rattled,
I go insane everyday I do battle;
there’ll be more sorrow, of this there’s no doubt,
but the posture of grief is chin up and chest out.
(x2)
