lyrics

Got up early this morning and I went to my job
And I really had to ask myself why
Came home late in the evening tired as a dog
And I really had to ask myself why

I just really had to ask myself why
I really had to ask myself why
‘Cause it’s sooner or it’s later when we’re off of this ride
And I really had to ask myself why

Burned all of my free time scrolling through my phone
And I really had to ask myself why
Looked at 100,000 pictures just to feel less alone
And I really had to ask myself why

Well, there’s bills and there’s meetings
and a strong sense of dread
and a fear that some empty big head
will make us all wind up dead

Still, there’s freedom, friends, and family,
and a will to survive...

I went down to the river, but I didn’t drown
Figured might as well see what happens if I stick around

I just really had to ask myself why
I really had to ask myself why
‘Cause it’s sooner or it’s later when we’re off of this ride

And I really had to ask myself why
I just really had to ask myself why
I just really had to ask myself why…
