I can never do anything right
I can never do anything right
I can never do anything right

and while my mom asks God
for a path out of misery
i shut my lips
and wash ranch dishes

splits in my hands
lotion and alcohol
do nothing but burn

Lord, take away these chest pains
and the fact that I enjoy so little in my life
i am a failed parent Lord
i can never do anything right
