Some nights, I stay up cashing in my bad luck
Some nights, I call it a draw
Some nights, I wish that my lips could build a castle
Some nights, I wish they'd just fall off

But I still wake up, I still see your ghost
Oh lord, I'm still not sure what I stand for

What do I stand for? (oh whoa!)
What do I stand for? (oh whoa!)

Most nights, I don't know
Anymore

Oh, oh whoa!, oh whoa!
Oh
Oh, oh whoa!, oh whoa!
Oh

This is it, boys, this is war (oh!)
What are we waiting for? (oh whoa!)
Why don't we break the rules already? (oh)

I was never one to believe the hype (oh whoa!)
Save that for the black and white (oh whoa!)
I try twice as hard and I'm half as liked (oh)
But here they come again to jack my style

That's alright
That's alright
I found a
Martyr in my bed tonight
Stops my bones from wondering just who I, who I
Who I am
Oh, who am I?
Hum
Who am I? (mm)
Who am I?

Well, some nights, I wish that this all would end
'cause I could use some friends for a change

And some nights, I'm scared you'll forget me again
Some nights, I always win (i always win)

But I still wake up, I still see your ghost
Oh lord, I'm still not sure what I stand for
Oh

What do I stand for? (oh!)
What do I stand for? (oh whoa!)
Most nights,
I don't know
Oh come on!

So this is it?
I sold my soul for this?
Washed my hands of that for this? (oh my)
I missed my mom and dad for this? (oh my my)

When I see stars (oh, come on!)
When I see, when I see stars, (oh, come on)
That's all they are, when I hear songs (oh my my)
They sound like a swan

So come on!
Oh, come on!
Come on!
Oh, come on!

Well, that is it, guys, that is all (oh)
Five minutes in and I'm bored again (oh whoa!)
Ten years of this, I'm not sure if anybody understands (oh)

This one is not for the folks at home (oh)
Sorry to leave, mom, I had to go (oh whoa!)
Who the heck wants to die alone all dried up in the desert sun? (oh)

My heart is breaking for my sister
And the con that she called love
But when I look into my nephews eyes

Man, you wouldn't believe
The most amazing things
That can come from
Some terrible lies, yeah, ah whoa!

Oh! (ah, yeah, ah!)
Oh whoa!

Oh (oh whoa, whoa, whoa!) (oh, whoa)
Oh whoa! (oh, whoa, whoa, ooh!) (oh, whoa!)
Oh whoa! (oh, whoa, whoa, whoa!) (ah!)
Oh (ah)
Oh (oh, whoa, whoa, whoa!) (oh!)
Oh whoa! (oh, whoa, whoa, ooh!) (ah!)
Oh whoa! (oh, whoa, whoa, whoa!)
Oh (yeah!)

The other night, you wouldn't believe the dream (oh!)
I just had about you and me (oh whoa!)
I called you up, but we'd both agree (oh come on!)

It's for the best you didn't listen (yeah!)
It's for the best we get our distance, oh! (oh come on!)
It's for the best you didn't listen (oh!)
It's for the best we get our distance (come on!)

Oh
Oh whoa!
Oh whoa!
Oh!
