  • 20 years of schooling
    I just never learned the math
    That one and one don't equal two
    They often equal half

    I have tried to live the high life
    The best that I know how
    And bought my share of debonair
    And parlayed it on the crowd

    I do believe that there are no more tricks up my sleeve
    The good old days have passed and the good times after that
    And slowly I've become undone
    A stranger with a stranger heart

    Well I plan to hit the bottom
    The bottle then the top
    And I pray that something quits me
    Before I gotta stop

    Cause the masquerade is over
    But I was barely there
    The mask come off the gilded cloth
    Yet I'm just barely here

    I do believe that there are no more tricks up my sleeve
    The good old days have passed and the good times after that
    And slowly I've become undone
    A stranger with a stranger heart Writer/s: DANIEL NEIL MCDOUGALL, TOR MILLER
