  • Some nights, I stay up cashing in my bad luck

  • Some nights, I call it a draw

  • Some nights, I wish that my lips could build a castle

  • Some nights, I wish they'd just fall off

  • But I still wake up, I still see your ghost

  • Oh Lord, I'm still not sure what I stand for

  • What do I stand for? What do I stand for?

  • Most nights, I don't know

  • Anymore

  • This is it, boys, this is war

  • What are we waiting for?

  • Why don't we break the rules already?

  • I was never one to believe the hype

  • Save that for the black and white

  • Try twice as hard and I'm half as liked

  • But here they come again to jack my style

  • And that's alright

  • I found a martyr in my bed tonight

  • She stops my bones from wondering just who I am, who I am, who I am

  • Oh, who am I? Mmm, mmm

  • Well, some nights, I wish that this all would end

  • 'Cause I could use some friends for a change

  • And some nights, I'm scared you'll forget me again

  • Some nights, I always win (I always win)

  • But I still wake up, I still see your ghost

  • Oh Lord, I'm still not sure what I stand for

  • What do I stand for? What do I stand for?

  • Most nights, I don't know

  • (Oh, c'mon) So this is it? I sold my soul for this?

  • Washed my hands of that for this?

  • I miss my mom and dad for this?

  • No, when I see stars, when I see stars, that's all they are

  • When I hear songs, they sound like a swan

  • So come on

  • Oh, come on!

  • Oh, come on!

  • Oh, come on!

  • Well, that is it, guys, that is all

  • Five minutes in and I'm bored again

  • Ten years of this, I'm not sure if anybody understands

  • This one is not for the folks back home

  • Sorry to leave, mom, I had to go

  • Who the fuck wants to die alone all dried up in the desert sun?

  • My heart is breaking for my sister

  • And the con that she called "love"

  • And then I look into my nephew's eyes

  • Man, you wouldn't believe the most amazing things

  • That can come from

  • Some terrible nights

  • The other night, you wouldn't believe

  • The dream I just had about you and me

  • I called you up but we'd both agree

  • It's for the best you didn't listen

  • It's for the best we get our distance

  • It's for the best you didn't listen

  • It's for the best we get our distance, oh

Some nights, I stay up cashing in my bad luck
