The Righteous Path
- 35 Views
I got a brand new car that drinks a bunch of gas I got a house in a neighborhood that's fading fast I got a dog and a cat that don't fight too much I got a few hundred channels to keep me in touch I got a beautiful wife and three tow-headed kids I got a couple of big secrets I'd kill to keep hid I don't know God but I fear his wrath I'm trying to keep focused on the righteous path I got a couple of opinions that I hold dear Got a whole lot of debt and a whole lot of fear I got an itch that needs scratching but it feels alright I got the need to blow it out on Saturday night I got a grill in the backyard and a case of beers Got a boat that ain't seen the water in years More bills than money, I can do the math I'm trying to keep focused on the righteous path I'm trying to keep focused as I drive down the road On the ditches and the curves and the heavy load Ain't bitching 'bout things that aren't in my grasp Just trying to hold steady on the righteous path This friend of mine I've known all my life Who can't get it right no matter how hard he tries He's got kids he don't see and several ex-wives And a list of bad decisions 'bout eight miles wide Trouble with the law and the IRS And where he'll get the money's anybody's guess He's a long way off but if you was to ask He'd say he's trying to stay focused on the righteous path Trying to keep focused as we drive down the road Like we did back in High School before the world turned cold Now the brakes are thin and the curves are fast We're trying to hold steady on the righteous path We're hanging out and we're hanging on We're trying the best we can to keep keeping on We got messed up minds for these messed up times And it's a thin thin line separating his from mine Trying to hold steady on the righteous path Eighy miles and hour with a worn out map No time for self-pity or a load of crap Trying to stay focused on the righteous path
