You know that bad luck will eat you up
When's it gonna end?
I twisted everything I could
Out of words

In real life my colours never blend
When I was a boy I said to myself
That I'd never lean on anyone else
Oh, but I was wrong

Yeah I was wrong
And my mother took me by the hands and then
Oh, oh how I prayed
That the good Lord would come and take me away

From this mess of a life that I'm in
And I fell to my knees oh and I cried
As the lightning rose up from the earth to the sky
In this wreck of a life that I'm in

In this mess of a life that I'm in
Come on you got a lot to give
A lot to live for 
And hope it all gets better

You twisted everything you can out of anything
I know it's gonna get better
And I'm so sick and tired of lying around
We're all waiting for someone to light up this town

Oh, it won't be long
It won't be long
And I know I should have left town but I stayed
Oh how I prayed

That the good Lord would come and take me away
From this mess of a life that I'm in
And I fell to my knees oh and I cried
As the lightning rose up from the earth to the sky

In this wreck of a life that I'm in
In this mess of a life that I'm in
Oh and it feels like I'm writing a book and I can't get inspired
Sometimes 

It seems that I'm breathing in smoke and my lungs are so tired
Oh well
I'll just sleep it all off and then hope that it don't get me fired
And I'm asking you please

Oh oh how I prayed
That the good Lord would come and take me away
From this mess of a life that I'm in
And I fell to my knees oh and I cried

As the lightning rose up from the earth to the sky
In this wreck of a life that I'm in
And oh how I prayed
That the good Lord would come and take me away

From this mess of a life that I'm in
And I fell to my knees oh and I cried
As the lightning rose up from the earth to the sky
In this wreck of a life that I'm in

In this mess of a life that I'm in
In this wreck of a life that I'm in
In this wreck of a life that I'm in
In this mess of a life that I'm in

In this mess of a life that I'm in...
