He was watching his life go by his head in his hands
He looked into a bottle saw where it began
Never thought he'd end up here
Watching his old man, it was always his fear

They found him by the river a bottle close by
Dragged him to his feet, took him down the street
Threw him in the lockup on the floor he would lie
Blood came from his head from where he was beat

I've been hanging onto a short rope
Staring down at the abyss below
Life has handed me a short rope
Never thought I could get so low, Never thought I could get so low

Threw water on his face, he felt like a disgrace
Tried to stand up but fell on his face
The Man he said you'll be here for a while
Take a seat you're not going no where

I've been hanging onto a short rope
Staring down at the abyss below
Life has handed me a short rope
Never thought I could get so low, Never thought I could get so low

He was watching his life go by his head in his hands
He looked into a bottle saw where it began
Never thought he'd end up here
Watching his old man, it was always his fear

Then they put him aboard a bus to no where
The man he cracked a smile and spat on his face
You'll have plenty of time to get yourself straight
When they lock you up in the Psych Ward mate

I've been hanging onto a short rope
Staring down at the abyss below
Life has handed me a short rope
Never thought I could get so low, Never thought I could get so low
