I'm jumping in, can't you tell
I'm going to find my dreams at the bottom of the well
The hole is deep, the water feels cold
I break through the ice, push away the snow
Down at the bottom there's a penny for my name
It's going to take this life, take away the pain

Underneath the surface you can't hear a sound
I reached for a quarter and I damn near drown
I came back up, I gasped for air
What the hell was I thinking, I was almost there
Two deep breaths, here we go again
This is where it starts, this is where it all ends

Down at the bottom there it is
You ruined my life you son of a bitch
If I had a nickel for every rock I turned
Every friend I lost, every bridge I burned
I'm going to pick you up and out of this well
I'm going to take this life and give you hell

That's how it ends, how the story goes
Selfish greed nearly took my soul
I gave it all up for million dollar checks
I wanted more but forgot the rest
