Feeling weary
Wonder what the future may bring
Asking the questions
When I'd rather not know the answers

I spot a run down man
In a dirty uniform
Done for the day
Puts a tall can
On the counter
Hands over his pay
As he does
He's greeted with a smile
From the counter lady
Walks off with his head high
And a forgotten long day

Ups and downs
Strikes and gutters
A little bit of comfort goes a long way

Caught in a rut
Try to keep my mouth shut
Sure would hate to bring you down
I'm always amazed
By the simple little things
That pick my sorry ass up off the ground

Like a crooked smile
I hadn't seen for a while
Or a change of direction
In the wind
A heavy riff
With palm muted triplets
From Dimebag Darrel
In his day
Dog off the leash
Running wild on the beach
Or hiding in the shade
A hot cup of joe
On a morning so cold
That you barely made it of bed

Ups and downs
Strikes and gutters
A little bit of comfort goes a long way
