Bitter Man

Sun, don't rear your head.
I'm sulking in the dark.
I'll stay bed
I'll curse the lark.

You won't see a grin.
I don't have a kind word
I wallow in the sin.
I flip the bird.

Please forgive me, Lord
I'm not always this way.
Please forgive me, Lord
I don't always mean what I say

I'm just a bad man
Don't like what I am.
I'm just a sad man.
Don't like who I am.
I'm the bitter man.
I'm the bitter man.

I'm always mad at you
And I'm always mad at me.
I'd like to tear in two
People full of glee.

I got something to prove.
But I don't know what it is.
Can't get my life to move
So I'll just take a whiz.

Please forgive me, Lord.
Please don't go away
Please forgive me, Lord
I've been led astray

I'm just a bad man
Don't like what I am.
I'm just a sad man.
Don't like who I am.
I'm the bitter man.
I'm the bitter man.

For too long
I took for granted
The time I'd been given.

For too long
My heart was beating
But I wasn't living.

And I hate the system
And the robot fools
With no wisdom
We are Satan's tools.

I want to run
But we have too many chains
And we have big guns
But we have little brains

Please forgive me, Lord.
I'm starting a new day
Please forgive me, Lord
I've heard it's never too late.

... I'm the bitter man.
