However Much I Booze lyrics

I see myself on TV, I'm a faker, a paper clown
It's clear to all my friends that I habitually lie, I just bring them down
I claim proneness to exaggeration but the truth lies in my frustration
The children of the night, they all pass me by
Got to dress myself in brandy and sleep while high

But however much I booze
There ain't no way out, there ain't no way out
I don't care what you say, boy
There ain't no way out

I lose so many nights of sleep worrying about my responsibilities
Are the problems that screw me up really down to him or me?
My ego will just confuse me, some day it's going to up and use me
Dish me out another tailor-made compliment
Tell me about some destiny I can't prevent

And however much I squirm
There ain't no way out, there ain't no way out
I don't care what you say, boy
There ain't no way out

Won't somebody tell me how to get out of this place?

And the night comes down like a cell door closing
Suddenly I realize that I'm writing now more honestly
While sitting here all alone with a bottle and my head floating
Far away from the phone and the conscience going on at me
And on at me

And I don't care what you say
There ain't no way out, there ain't no way out

Now the walls are all clawed and scratched like by some soul insane
In the morning I humbly detach myself, I take no blame
I just can't face my failure, I'm nothing but a well f*cked sailor
You at home can easily decide what's right
By glancing very briefly at the songs I write

But it don't help me that you know
This ain't no way out, won't somebody tell me?
I don't care what you say, boy
There ain't no way out, oh

There ain't no way out, there ain't no way out
There ain't no way out, give me the key, give me the key
Give me the key, oh there ain't no way out of here
There ain't, there ain't, there ain't no way out
There ain't no way out, there ain't no way out
