I got up feeling so down; I got off being sold out.

I've kept the movie rolling, but the story's getting old, now.

I just looked in the mirror; things aren't looking so good.

I'm looking California and feeling Minnesota, oh yeah!

Show me the power, child, I'd like to say that I'm down on my knees today.

Yeah, it gives me the butterflies, gives me away 'til I'm up on my feet again.

Hey, I'm feeling, oh, I'm feeling outshined, outshined, outshined, outshined.




Someone let the dogs out, they'll show you where the truth is

The grass is always greener where the dogs are shedding

I'm feeling that I'm sober, even though I'm drinking

I can't get any lower, still I feel I'm sinking
