It's Alright

My dad he sought to teach me all the rules of mathematics

I absorbed all of his lessons now I sometimes wish I hadn’t

cause now I know to add up, put two and two together

I'm curious if ignorance would not have suit me better

 

I set sail for Washington and the hardest part of moving

is the tourist traps that snare you and I got the shirt to prove it

I want a hotter body and a cooler sense of style

want to corner every market in the country by the time I

 

by the time I turn 25, the time I learn to drive

oh, I'm behind the curve 'cause I'm not famous as a child alright

 

I get a thought it's alright

I write a song it's alright

you sing along it's alright

at rock bottom I'm still better than I've been in my life

 

I'm waiting for the vampires to leave their homes to feed

so I can swoop and take their parking spot, its’ tough out on the street

when it's every monster for themselves but I am not a monster though

I just want to park my Mazda close to home as possible

 

I always push the people further asking for a bit more

but lately all these comments make me careful what I fish for

you told me I'm intractable, I only nod my head

but then I had to suck it up and finally google what it meant

 

I get a thought it's alright

I write a song it's alright

you sing along it's alright

at rock bottom I'm still better than I've been in my life

I waste my time I'm alright

I lose my keys I'm alright

I pet a dog I'm alright

I got talent and my mama told me that I'm alright

 

Pick a poem, any poem just don't let me read it

I scratch clever lines down on the bus ride discretely

the bumps shake my hand like it’s so nice to meet me

now I can't read my notes but they're not worth repeating

 

I've been looking for a pattern in the data that I've gathered

turns out all you want’s a chorus it’s the only part that matters alright

 

I get a thought it's alright

I write a song it's alright

you sing along it's alright

at rock bottom I'm still better than I've been in my life
