lyrics

never did a line of coke
never saw a holy ghost
been as far west as Fargo, ND
far east as Ohio

tell me, how am I still alive
how am I still alive

I'm burdened just like you
by my own version of the truth
I drink and get pissed
just shaking my fist at all I'm entitled to

tell me, how am I still alive
how am I still alive

adolescent solipsism
mixed with nascent alcoholism
I'm embattled, embittered and emboldened
by the path that I thought chosen
like a mouth, the road yawns open
but there's nowhere left to drive

tell me, how am I still alive
how am I still alive
