Paper Scratcher

Album: Blind Melon (1992)
  • Shuffle can to can nobody really gives a damn
    For every living day I give myself a hand
    Now I'm scroungy as can be
    I got all you normals looking at me
    I'll scratch a hole in my life
    So everyone can see

    My mind is a mind that I have come to know
    And my eyes can't conceive a world that can not grow
    And Fridays are always fresh days

    Screamin' at the sun, don't really
    Know what he has done
    He don't believe in God and a world as one
    So he rambles through the weeds
    And he will sleep beneath the trees

    On the day I die, Thank God my Soul will be released

    I've seen all your eyes
    And I've seen all your faces
    Can you tell me honestly that you want to be free?
    Then look in my eyes
    I've been lots of places
    Can you tell me honestly that you'd want to be me
