Songs > Slacker > Lyrics

I had always tried to do the right thing but
In the end my results were just a little split off center from the most
Though the same was offered to everybody else I mean
What could you blame me for? Truth is we're just being representative of the Midwest
And so if I always manage to show up just a little late
In the end no matter how hard I tried I never seemed to make it there on time but it's
All too hard it seems maybe just a little too much
In the end here I must confess you've yet to ever witness best

Well I've made my choice ya know, it fits your stereotype
There's a little more that I could mention, it's got something to do with some really good intentions
And I've yet always done everything that they've asked of me
Never questioned if it was right. I was simply going along with some kind of fucked up life
Until I met with my challenge, that's what you labeled me, ya know
I never thought about the implications of all your words ????? unto my dedications
So this slacker fumbles through another day but
The way you measure things all depends on whether or not you're workin for another man's ends

I had always tried to do the right thing but
In the end my results were just a little split off center from the most
Though the same was offered to everybody else I mean
What could you blame me for? Truth is we're just being representative of the Midwest
And so if I always manage to show up just a little late
In the end no matter how hard I tried I never seemed to make it there on time but it's
All too hard it seems maybe just a little too much
In the end here I must confess we've yet to ever give you our best
