Grievances Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
If I had my own way, you'd be with me here today
But I really have my own way, I guess that's why you're not here with me today
And the librarian said, you can't buy no respect
I said hey lady, what can you expect
When I'm lying on the floor
Verse 2
You're a lovely lady but you don't wanna be no girl of mine
Well the only thing you ever done for me was help me waste my time
And I saw you at the funeral, you were standing there like a temple
I said hi, how are you, hello
And I pulled up a casket and crawled in
Yes I did
Verse 3
Climbed up a mountain, and I looked around
Some kind of circus with all them clowns
I said hey wait a minute, can't we slow down a bit
And I almost got hit by a truck
Verse 4
Well it just goes to show you, that we're all on our own
Scrounging for our own share of good
Stab your brother in the back
And pick up your paycheck
Verse 5
Goodbye lonely heart drawings, it never did work anyhow
I'm looking for a nice girl and I don't want no cow
I'm heading out west
Gonna find me the best
Well I played the game, but I failed the test
If I can't be a lover then I'll be a pest
Yes I will
