Weak Man

I’m the runt of the litter
I’m the stem of your glass
I’m the new kid at school
And It’s the first day of class
I’m the button on your shirt
That’s hanging from a thread
I’m a castle made of cards
A broken spring in your bed

I used to play in the dirt
Stare at the sun
Never thought I’d go blind
Never thought I’d get stung
Now I’m worn out and dry
Like an old battery
I used to be strong
Now I am week

I’m a five dollar dime bag
I’m a three legged chair
I’m a fluorescent light bulb
That’s gasping for air
I’m watered down whiskey
From your local dive bar
I’m a crack in the Ice
I’m a broken cigar

I used to play in the dirt
Stare at the sun
Never thought I’d go blind
Never thought I’d get stung
Now I hardly exist
Like an old memory
I used to be strong
Now I am week

I used to be strong
Now I am week
