lyrics

i used to brace for the excitement of impossibility
but suggestion can be met with such hostility
there are things i'm grateful for and reflect on with a certain pity
i don't miss wandering with sickness through the open city
or nervous break downs, or frivolity
the fall of my demon, my hopeless misery

it's just human nature, it's just human nature
it isn't your fault, that's what they all said
it's just human nature, it's just human nature
if that was the case, we'd all be in this place
they lie, they lie

i think less fondly of uncivilized unnatural feelings
since i was able to relieve myself of dirty dealings
and still i wonder how my life could have ended up being
had i continued on a path of lies and drugs and stealing

the fall of my demon, my constant skin peeling
the needle drugs, that fix, that sting, the devil's ceiling
the fall of my demon, it is so unappealing
to think about, to re-enact, to know it was me

i almost lost it all

it's just human nature, it's just human nature
it isn't your fault, that's what they all said
it's just human nature, it's just human nature
if that was the case, we'd all be in this place
it's just human nature, it's just human nature
it isn't your fault, that's what they all said
they lie, they lie

i hope if nothing else my son learns one thing from my mistakes
no pills, no heroin, no opiates, not even one chance
because i couldn't stand to see what my wife saw in me
in my flesh and blood with a predisposition thanks to his dear old dad

thanks to his dear old dad
but i'm still his dear old dad
'cause i could have been
his dead old dad
