"Wishbones"

[Verse 1]
Day after day after
Trying to understand
Why the world tries to grind you down
Makes a ghost out of a man
Your debt of grace is due
You've pawned everything you own
I guess some dreams just don't come true
Nothin' left but skin and wishbones

[Verse 2]
Each year the world gets lonelier
And uglier with sin
You'll never see those blue skies
Through young eyes again
You've prayed to every god you know
Just to wind up all alone
Your friends are gone, your mama's dead
Nothin' left but skin and wishbones

[Chorus]
Spin the bottle cap
Throw a shot back
Everything's gonna be all right
Spin the bottle cap
Throw a shot back
Cough and cry, lay down and die

[Post-Chorus]
Grab an end and hold on tight
Bottles and bones in the night
You'll never go back home
You old wishbone

[Instrumental]

[Verse 3]
Can't eat, can't sleep, can't think
Not knowing where to go
This is real life, brother
This ain't no reality show
If suffering is human
Well, at least you're not alone
You'll survive on next to nothing
But you won't live on skin and wishbones

[Chorus]
Spin the bottle cap
Throw a shot back
Everything's gonna be all right
Spin the bottle cap
Throw a shot back
Cough and cry, lay down and die

Wish upon a star tonight
Everything's gonna be alright
Spin the bottle cap
Throw a shot back
Cough and cry, lay down and die

[Post-Chorus]
Grab an end and hold on tight
Bottles and bones in the night
You'll never go back home
You old wishbone

Grab an end and hold on tight
Bottles and bones in the night
You'll never go back home
You old wishbone
