Bayside - Blame It On Bad Luck

Pound my knuckles hard against the floor 

My head against the wall

But I did this to myself 

Assume it's just not worth getting back up, 

But I'll blame it on bad luck 

I'll shake responsibility


I spent some time in a bad place at 18, 

Wishing I could see something through clear eyes 

Do you ever wake up to realize your life is meaningless? 

Does it give you strength or lead you to your grave at a young age?


Pound my knuckles hard against the floor 

My head against the wall 

But I did this to myself 

Assume it's just not worth getting back up, 

But I'll blame it on bad luck 

I'll shake responsibility


It seems that when I ran away from my past all my dignity, 

My faith, 

My pride got left back 

And now I think it's time that I realize self pity's meaningless 

Though I'm 10 feet deep, 

I'll claw my way back out from in my grave


Pound my knuckles hard against the floor

My head against the wall 

But I did this to myself 

Assume it's just not worth getting back up, 

But I'll blame it on bad luck 

I'll shake responsibility 

(And say a hard life did this to me)


But now I realize I'd give anything I have to walk a day in my old shoes 

Wondering what my first smoke would be like, 

My first fuck, 

My next fuck up 

Or the next band that would change my life and it changed my life


Pound my knuckles hard against the floor 

My head against the wall 

But I did this to myself 

Assume it's just not worth getting back up, 

But I'll blame it on bad luck

I'll shake responsibility 

(And say a hard life did this to me)
