Deviates - One Day

Twenty-six and Paul wants a great life
A good paying job
A nice house, a kid, a pretty wife
He can't hold a job
He never has and knows he never will
He plays the lottery
And blames his problems on the world

I've been seeing this
Shit for some time
We all got our problems
I guess we've all got our needs
I've been seeing this shit for some time
Take good care of yourself

First of the month and the rent is due again
Checking his savings he's got pocket lint to spend
Down on his luck
With no tears to spare
Desperation motivates a mind not clear

I've been seeing this
Shit for some time
We all got our problems
I guess we've all got our needs
I've been seeing this shit for some time
Take good care of yourself


One day
He said things are gonna change
One day
When I've got things squared away
Yeah one day
Soon turns into the next
One day were the words he said with his last breath

Take good care of yourself
I've been seeing this
Shit for some time
We all got our problems
I guess we've all got our needs
I've been seeing this shit for some time
Take good care of yourself

1992 Paul walks into a liquor store
With an unloaded pistol
No need to say more
His life ended in that tragic way
No one cared for him
Not one to this day

One day
He said things are gonna change
Yeah one day
When I've got things squared away
Yeah one day
Soon turns into the next
One day were the words he said with his last breath

One day
Things are gonna change
One day
When I've got things squared away
One day
Soon turns into the next
One day
