WhoHowever Much I Booze

I see myself on T.V., I'm a faker, a paper clown It's clear to all my friends that I habitually lie; I just bring them down I claim proneness to exaggeration But the truth lies in my frustration The children of the night, they all pass me by Have to drench myself in brandy In sleep I'll hide But however much I booze There ain't no way out There ain't no way out I don't care what you say, boy There ain't no way out I lose so many nights of sleep worrying about my responsibilities Are the problems that screw me up really down to him or me My ego will just confuse me Some day it's going to up and use me Dish me out another tailor-made compliment Tell me about some destiny I can't prevent And however much I squirm There ain't no way out There ain't no way out I don't care what you say, boy There ain't no way out Won't somebody tell me how to get out of this place?! Then the night comes down like a cell door closing Suddenly I realize that I'm right now, I'm on the scene While sitting here all alone with a bottle and my head a-floating Far away from the phone and the conscience going on at me And on at me, and I don't care what you say There ain't no way out There ain't no way out Now the walls are all clawed and scratched Like by some soul insane In the morning I hungoverly detach myself I take no blame I just can't face my failure I'm nothing but a well fucked sailor You at home can easily decide what's right By glancing very briefly at the songs I write But it don't help me that you know This ain't no way out Won't somebody tell me? I don't care what you say, boy There ain't no way out There ain't no way out There ain't no way out There ain't no way out Give me the key, lock it away There ain't There ain't There ain't no way out There ain't no way out There ain't no way out
