It’s better to keep,

Everything in life,

In perspective

And if you don’t like the way it looks,

Turn around

And look the other way

If that view isn’t any better,

Just take a stroll down any city street,

In the middle of the night

Take a look at where you might be,

Then think again about your problems

Not quite so big?

You can thank me later

Lifting Them

All is good in this world

And as long as no one is dying,

Let’s lift a few

Put them up to our lips,

And hope we make it back alive

Here’s to the future good days,

And to all the bad ones gone

I guess I prefer the here and now,

Over the what could or should have been

Call me an optimist,

It seems everyone else likes to call me a cynic

Well, fuck ’em

Let them rot and roll in their graves

And to all of those retched souls,

I lift one

Just because I’m still here,

And they’re not
