Sometimes I feel all alone
Sometimes I feel like the whole world is against me
Sometimes I just wanna stab myself in the back
But then I realize my arms are way too short
And I can’t stab myself in the back
That’s when I’m feeling hopeless and stupid
But today...

I’m doing alright
I’m feeling just fine
I’m doing alright
You motherfuckers here we go

When I was a sailor
The ocean was my home
I left my burdens all behind me
Was in peace with my own
It will never gonna be, never gonna be
Never gonna be the same no more
‘Cause I will never gonna see, never gonna see,
Never gonna see this place no more
Call me Jack Kerouac
’Hey Jack!’
Always on the road
Looking for the perfect moment
I'm a rolling stone

And it will never be the same again
Gonna leave it all behind farewell

It was a Friday when they tried to get me
All my creditors
‘Cause I was a buffing fluffing
Good for nothing gambler
Chiggachiggaching chigga ching che ching,
I spended (that’s drunkish for ‘spent’)
All my money on horse racing,
The bardoor’s burstin out cause they kicked it in,
One-eighty spin and jump right out the window
Goodbye I´m sorry and don´t be angry
The tide is in, I clear the port

I swear i will get back on track
And one fine day I´ll pay it back

Taking one step forward, taking two steps back
You never lose track and you never gonna slack
The doctor said: ‘Just go ahead.’
What do you know? I said: ‘Fuck that!’
