Same Ol' Story

Album: Bring Ya to the Brink (2008)
  • People slippin' in the rain
    I watch them get up again
    It makes me feel like I can too
    Hey hey ya

    Just when I get off the ground
    Your back tryin' to put me down
    Like some simpleton you can use
    Hey

    [Chorus]
    Well It's the same old fucking story
    With your two different sets of rules
    The same old fucking story
    One for me two for you
    It's the same old fucking story
    It's the same old fucking story all around yeah

    Still some glory in my eyes
    Much to everyone's surprise
    After everything you put me through
    Yeah well
    Friends tell me you've been around
    Big fish in a big ol' town
    Gobble up all in one fair swoop yeah

    [Chorus]

    Still got my feet on tie to the beat yeah
    Still got my feet on tie to the beat yeah
    Still got my feet on tie to the beat yeah
    Still got my feet on tie to the beat yeah

    Still some glory in my eyes
    Much to everyone's surprise
    After everything you put me through
    Yeah well
    Friends tell me you've been around
    Big fish in a big ol' town
    Gobble up all in one fair swoop yeah

    [Chorus]

    It's the same fucking story know damn well it's true
    Same ol' same ol' same ol' same ol' same ol'
