Dull Boy

Album: By the People, For the People (2007)
  • [Chorus]
    All work and no play makes me a dull boy [Repeat: x4]

    Live in a secret
    Live in a lie
    Live in a dark hole beneath the black sky
    Live like a martyr and draw my last breath
    Feel like an old man with a knife in my chest

    Live like a transient
    Live like a thief
    Hide in a closet, grinding my teeth
    Sit in a small room with the walls closing in
    Open the shutters but everything's still dim

    Payback
    For all the things
    I've done in my past

    Payback
    For everything
    There are no take backs

    [Chorus]

    I'm not the reason
    Its not my fault
    Its not my problem
    I'm not the cause

    I'm not your scapegoat
    I'm not your god
    I'm not your martyr
    I'd leave you all

    I'm not the reason - (I'm not your scapegoat)
    Its not my fault - (I'm not your god)
    Its not my problem - (I'm not your martyr)
    I'm not the cause - (Id leave you all)

    All work and no play makes me a dull boy

    Feel like a clown without my funny nose
    Walk to the window break it out with my fist
    Jump from the sill and I'll plunge to my death
    You can me selfish whatever ya think
    Throw back my pills and take a sip of my drink

    Walk beneath the clouds
    Walk beneath the trees
    Always again envy covering me

    Payback
    For all the things
    I've done in my past

    [Chorus]

    Sunshine's gone
    Its all gone

    By the way just so you know
    Always this is how I feel

    By the way just so you know
    Always everyday this is how I feel

    I'm not the reason
    Its not my fault
    Its not my problem
    I'm not the cause
    I'm not your scape goat (I'm not your scape goat)
    I'm not your god (I'm not your god)
    I'm not your martyr (I'm not your martyr)

    This is how I feel (this is how I feel)

    By the way just so you know
    Always everyday this is how I feel Writer/s: CHAD L. GRAY, GREG TRIBBETT, MATTHEW MCDONOUGH, RYAN MARTINIE
