  • All that I want
    Is to wake up fine
    Tell me that I'm alright
    That I ain't gonna die
    All that I want
    Is a hole in the ground
    You can tell me when it's alright
    For me to come out

    (Hard times) gonna make you wonder why you even try
    (Hard times) gonna take you down and laugh when you cry
    (These lives) and I still don't know how I even survive
    (Hard times)
    (Hard times)
    And I gotta get to rock bottom

    Walking around
    My little rain cloud
    Hanging over my head
    And it ain't coming down
    Where do I go?
    Gimme some sort of sign
    You hit me with lightning!
    Maybe I'll come alive

    (Hard times) gonna make you wonder why you even try
    (Hard times) gonna take you down and laugh when you cry
    (These lives) and I still don't know how I even survive
    (Hard times)
    (Hard times)
    And I gotta head to rock bottom

    Tell my friends I'm coming down
    We'll kick it when I hit the ground
    Tell my friends I'm coming down
    We'll kick it when I hit the ground
    When I hit the ground
    When I hit the ground
    When I hit the ground
    When I hit the ground

    (Hard times) gonna make you wonder why you even try
    (Hard times) gonna take you down and laugh when you cry
    (These lives) and I still don't know how I even survive
    (Hard times) (hard times)
    (Hard times) (hard times)

    (Hard times) gonna make you wonder why you even try
    (Hard times) gonna take you down and laugh when you cry
    (These lives) and I still don't know how I even survive
    (Hard times) (hard times)
    (Hard times)
