Sometimes life it takes you by the hair.
Pulls you down before you know it,
It’s gone and you’re dead again.
I’ve been in places and I won’t pretend
That I make it out just to fall on my head.

Wake up strange to take a walk downstairs
Hit the pawn up on the corner and pay for my rent.
You know that I cannot believe my own truth
Just show them what I choose, got nothing to lose.

Yeah yeah and it’s okay.
I tie my hands up to a chair so I don’t fall that way.
Yeah yeah and I’m alright.
I took a sip of something poison but I’ll hold on tight.

You know those days when you wanted to just choose
To not get out of bed, you're lost in your head again.
You play the game but you kind of cut
Cuz’ you’re coming down hard and your joints all stuck.

I've tried to say that’s not the only way
I never knew if I could face myself to change.
You were pacing, I was insecure.
Slip and fall, I dogging the calls, hug the prison I was living in.

Yeah yeah and it’s okay.
I tie my hands up to a chair so I don’t fall that way.
Yeah yeah and I’m alright.
I took a sip of something poison but I’ll hold on tight.
