Текст:

[Intro]
Said I'm back, back
Yeah you write, right
Go to sleep in the morning
Wake at night, night
I said I'm back, back
Yeah you write, right
Go to sleep in the morning
Wake at night

[Hook x2]
I ain't got no time to waste I've been wasted
Praying for some light to break but the days end
Twilight I'm wide awake getting faded
One butterfly pull the iron out the maiden

[Verse 1]
My life story just the irony of blending in
The black cowboy who's really just an indian
Outcast citizen, out for cash and dividends
Bread cheese and bank I'm just really tryin' to save my skin
And take care of kin plus my dearest friends
Who gave me bread or a bed when I had no ends
Or stole the shovel when I went to dig my grave again
And asked me where my album's at and when I'll play again

[Hook x2]
I ain't got no time to waste I've been wasted
Praying for some light to break but the day is in
Twilight I'm wide awake getting faded
One butterfly pull the iron out the maiden

[Verse 2]
I've been broken hearted (ugh), I've broken hearts
Can't tell the treasure from the trash when it gets too dark
I've been torn apart, but I've been mended back
With a needle and a thread and an nicotine patch
Getting clean hoping nothing pushes me to relapse
Like watching dreams pass or chasing greener grass
You're better off crying right into that empty glass
So sick of being depressed, this shit will make me laugh

[Hook x2]
I ain't got no time to waste I've been wasted
Praying for some light to break but the day is in
Twilight I'm wide awake getting faded
One butterfly pull the iron out the maiden

[Bridge]
I'm back, back
Yeah you write, right
Go to sleep in the morning
Wake at night, night
Said I'm back, back
Yeah you write, right
Go to sleep in the morning
Wake at night, night
Stay up all night and I songwrite
About my whole life and where it's gone right
Where it's gone wrong and where I'll fix it all
And then I wake up in the morning with a crystal ball
Going..

[Hook x2]
I ain't got no time to waste I've been wasted
Praying for some light to break but the day is in
Twilight I'm wide awake getting faded
One butterfly pull the iron out the maiden
