lyrics

A garage, it doesn’t seem like much to most
A pond in the back yard, an aging ghost
It lost the glow that it once had
Once loved tools retired, expired hands
Empty Coke cans lined with dust
Holes drilled underneath to keep ‘em from leaking
And rusting, these are the things that I’m trusting
I see every 6 to 7 months if my paycheck’s enough
Just for the gas to come up to see a basketball backboard
Rack with the memories attached, the deck in the back
The fence, the cracked cement
All built by a man with a plan in his head
I don’t know what it was, I was young, but I’m sure
It wasn’t this, the vines try to hide the past
And I still stand with a million questions to ask
But you can’t put a phone to a stone in the grass

I want to tell you about how I’m starting to know you
Take you to the bathroom mirror and show you
It’s Mom when I cough, it’s you when I sneeze
I want to tell you about my life when I dream
About all the bad things, and I’m stuck here
Wishing this was my last drink, give one cheers
Have another beer, I’m a cliche failure
The undertaker went and made you a savior
But I understand I wouldn’t make songs if you were here
And I wouldn’t have a story to tell on New Year’s
And I wouldn’t have the passion for rapping and lose fear
And when I think back, I wouldn’t have to choose tears
And it’s no news here, I’m happy when I’m sleeping
About all the times when I visit you dreaming
You say it’s not my time yet, it’s not that easy?
So what was so speical that YOU had to leave ME?
You make me feel like life is pointless
You get to a point where people are noises
You either go deaf or scream along in the mess
And I can’t figure out which evil is less
I know I’m not the only one feeling this
But this is my own way of dealing with this
We’re all mad, I’ll say it so the rest never have to
I’m supposed to learn from this
How can I when I’m mad at you?
And YOU had it easy, took it all for granted
Please believe me, I know you didn’t plan this
Didn’t plan a lot of things, and look what happened
Had to be proud, now you can’t see your grandkids
And I can’t get passed this, looking at my hands
Just WET from the tears, just SOFT from the years
Just January 20th, NOTHING is having me
Work for a family, work for a callus.
