lyrics

LIFER LYRICS:

Was beside myself at the ripe old age of 9
And I told myself said, “I will be just fine”
Now I find myself at the middle of old age
And I look at myself: Just won’t go away

I never really had the time
To sit around and wonder why
All I know is
I won’t play the victim

I am the middle, the middle is right now
I’ve been the middle, the middle is nowhere
I am the middle, the middle, it feels just fine and that’s plain to see
I’ve been the middle, but the middle is right now

I am the middle, the middle is nowhere
I am the middle, the middle, it feels just fine and that’s plain to see
That it never had to do with me

All I know is
I won’t play the victim

Easy target hard to get away from now
I’ve done my dance with the needle and learned from the damage done
Easy target hard to get away from now
I learned it, I’ve seen it
I know what’s done

Was beside myself at the ripe old age of only 10
Said, “it’s too much fun and why would I stop then”?
Now I find myself at the end of my own life
And I see myself and I will be just fine

I never really had the time
To fuck around and wonder why
All I know is
I won’t play the victim

I am the middle, the middle is right now
I am the middle, the middle is nowhere
I’ve been the middle, the middle, it feels just fine and that’s plain to see

I am the middle and the middle is right now
I’ve been the middle but the middle is nowhere
I am the middle, the middle, it feels just fine and that’s plain to see
That it never had to do with me

All I know is
I won’t play the victim
Right now
