3 deep breaths by Murphy Clamrod

yes i’ve been told one and one make three
folded the best hand for fear of the river
tossed caution out with the trash & clouds
looked long and hard into a mans weakness
and i am still here

yes i’ve been on the brightest side of fate
kicked down the door of strange just to peek
locked horns with that fucking silver surfer
missed my mark and then i fell flat on my ass
and i am still here

yes i’ve been up down left behind right wrong
blamed others for faults i find only in myself
burned both ends of the candle time after time
climbed to the highest perch just to say i did
and i am still fuckin here

yes i fear for my future because i am still here
