Deer tick - Grandfather song

A flare for the dramatic
I feel like I'm dying
Floating on a cloud
You got time, but I ain't buying

All throughout my life
You always nickel and dimed me
Thorny crown and a ring on the ground
Baby, I'm trying

Sitting like a sucker
In a doctor's candy bowl
Never tastes so sweet
When they tell you that you're old

Feel it in the knees
Or wherever I was told
Even when I'm on my feet
Every hand I shake is cold


I figure that it takes some time
To right the wrongs that are surely mine
I wish I could turn back the days
Don't let me fall too far from grace

I tried to push my limits
I've asked a lot of favors
I look at my reflection
And I don't seem all that gracious

The halls of my mind
Always seemed so palatial
I think it's inhumane
And they call it human nature

I figure that it takes some time
To right the wrongs that are surely mine
I wish I could turn back the days
Don't let me fall too far from grace
