Wasted life, wasted time, find me a reason.
A broken arm you can put in a cast,
but a cast won't help the stinkin’ pain I feel
Most of the people I tell about it
just look at me and say, “Man, it just ain't real”

I drank till I couldn't walk
and I even tried smoking
The pot I smoked made me smile
but the pain kept on, so I gave up toking.

I've tried a bunch of risky stuff
putting myself in harm’s way
I drove my car way too fast
but the pain stayed, it didn't go away

I've talked to docs and counselors
and I've taken all their medication
I read every book on it I could find
what the heck, I even tried a vacation.

So I'll walk this rocky path I'm given
and quit trying to figure out why
the truth be told that while I'm livin'
I'll be stuck with pain til the day I die.
