A song about how the subjectivity of "doing the right thing".


They look me in the eyes and they call me their friend
While I try not to count all the money they spend
On liver failure, bad avice and countless lost evenings
I don't care what they think or say it's death I'm selling

They tell me all about their boring job and sorry life
"Kids are expensive and did I tell you about my wife"
While they stay at home, worrying and wishing it would cease
The hours of wondering why or when, the broken promises

Am I a saint or a sinner?

They look my in the eyes and they call me a hero
Why the hell would they make me the star of the show?
Cuz I don't recall glitter or a camera in the trench
As much I recall the fear, the darkness and the stench

They look me in the eyes and they call me a good man
They thank me for doing the very best that I can
I really wish it was as easy as they make it sound
I truly pray they never know that feeling of being drowned
