99% of us is failure lyrics – matthew good

i know that it’s bad
that it’s the kind that they can’t operate on
and i know it’s real slow, honey
painful and real slow
styrofoam coffee cups
and bagged drugs that never work enough
and i know its real slow, honey
painful and real slow

when we were young
and hit like hammers
i’d write the nails in your hands
but when 99% of us is failure
there’s no going back

and i know its real slow, honey
painful and real slow

blackbird come the break of dawn
the tv’s on, i turn it off
walk outside, get in the car
stare at the wheel then fall apart

i get it all the time
bright eyes to bat and hide behind
but i know they’re just for show, honey
painful and just for show
black rooms to babysit
white halls to pace and wait for it
and i know it’s too slow, honey
painful and real slow

when we were young
and hit like hammers
i’d write the nails in your hands
when 99% of us is failure
there’s no coming back

and i know its real slow, honey
painful and real slow

blackbird come the break of day
you swallow the sh*t that people say
walk outside look at the sky
ask it to fall or tell you why
