Crooked

Sometimes I’m crooked like a stick after a storm
Sometimes I’m crooked, even before
had to check my mind and my coat, at the front door
when I’m done gettin’ crooked, I get crooked some more

but I had a reason
to breathe tonight
I had a reason
to feel alright
I had a reason
to believe tonight
and the reason was and the reason was and the reason was
good

Sometimes I’m crooked like a bone chewed by a dog
Sometimes I’m crooked, and then I’m gone
had to pay the toll and the fine, at the end of the line
‘cause I was too crooked but this definitely ain’t the last time

‘cause I had a reason
to breathe tonight
I had a reason
to feel alright
I had a reason
to believe tonight
and the reason was and the reason was and the reason was
good

Straighten me, straighten me out
back to my factory set
can you straighten me straighten me out
to something beautiful yet

Sometimes I’m crooked like a tool in the shed
i’ll probably still be crooked when I’m finally fuckin’ dead
had to hit the save on my page before I lost my thought
I’m about as crooked as a president whose conscience was bought

but I had a reason
to breathe tonight
I had a reason
to feel alright
I had a reason
to believe tonight
and the reason was and the reason was and the reason was
good

Call it my condition
‘cause nothin’ came to fruition
it was nothin’ but a nothin’ but a nothin’ but a nothin’ but a
nothin’ but a non decision

Call it my condition
‘cause somethin’ came to fruition
it was nothin’ but a nothin’ but a nothin’ but a nothin’ but a
nothin’ but a non decision

I live for what I’d die for
the rest can be dismissed
what’s the point of prayin’ for more
when all I gotta believe is that

I live...for this and only this
I’m gonna live...for this and only this
I’m gonna live...for this and only this
I’m gonna live...YEAH

Straighten me, straighten me out
back to my factory set
can you straighten me straighten me out
to something beautiful yet
