lyrics

ometimes I get so sad and mean and blue
Sometimes I get so sad I don't know what I should do
'Cause I done things that I can't forgive -
Wanna give up on my right to live
But I will never cross that line -
'Cause I'm a killing myself one piece at a time


CHORUS

One piece at a time Lord, one piece at a time
Well I'm a killing myself one piece at a time
Well I'm killing my lungs with an old cigar
I'm killing myself drinking at a bar
Since I began, I'm doing fine
Just a killing myself one piece at a time

Sometimes I realize I'm dirty and mean -
Dark things in my head like you ain' t seen
I used to worry that I might explode -
And do some damage, you never know
But these days I keep myself in line
By killing myself one piece at a time

CHORUS...

I even bought my coffin on time
Just a killing myself one piece at a time

CHORUS...

Well the way I eat 's like swallowing a gun -
I burn my eyes looking at the sun
Dance on my grave and f#ck in the pine
Just a killing myself one piece at a time
Just a killing myself one piece at a time
