Everybody Needs An Enemy

lyrics

I think some day that I might drown from the tears of the people that I've let down. I made a list of all my wrongs. I ran out of paper it was too damn long. You will never catch me in this dive oh lord, because I'm trying to do a little better than I did before. There've been a few good women to catch my fall. I never could seem to give them my all. I'd like to tell you I did my best. I wish I had and that I do regret. I've tried to make amends and apologize, but I will always be a screw-up in others' eyes. Everybody needs an enemy. Someone to make it black and white. It you want I'll be that guy for you tonight. Everybody needs an enemy. Were the good times really all that good? I know the low points never got as bad as they could. I never meant to put you in harm's way and it's a heavy load that I still cary today. Good lord I, good lord I know. I'm trying but it's going slow. Some say that I'm too little too late. You can all piss off, because that's not the case, so just cock the hammer and take your aim. I know either way you'll be cursing my name.
