Best Defense

I spent all of my money
To accelerate the fall
And you waited there in a rocking chair
Just a-starin’ at the wall
And it seems I’m nothing
That you wanted me to be
I build my best defense
When I decide to devise my own demise

So have a drink and load another bowl
And take the kid to your mother’s home
And I’ll sit here feelin’ like a fool
But don’t tell me that you’re not wrong
I’m not sayin’ that I’m right
But we’ll both go down together
If that’s the way it’s gonna be

Sometimes it’s just funny
When I can’t change my mind
The moon is up, the sky is pink
And I’m losin’ track of time
But don’t think that I don’t care
I wanna stick around
It’s my worst offense
When I decide to devise my own demise

So have a drink and load another bowl
And take the kid to your mother’s home
And I’ll sit here feelin’ like a fool
But don’t tell me that you’re not wrong
I’m not sayin’ that I’m right
But we’ll both go down together
If that’s the way it’s gonna be
