Blue October - Any Man In America

Текст песни: Any Man In America

I only note spending time away
 I only note the truth is spoken
 Best when brutally so honestly.

 I'll let you know you set
 The standards lyrically for me
 One single middle finger
 Say raise it up
 My speech will always be free
 Like Martin Luther King
 You had meaning to me
 Single-handedly saving music starving industry
 A hip hop legend with skin like invisible ink
 Black even though he was whiter than me
 He was the first to be colorless
 Speaking for all of us
 Then you let us into your family
 Mother father brother sister wife daughter
 Damn right in front of me

 That's when I miss my daughter desperately
 Your mocking bird puts dents in me
 While touring press and reliving my song hate me
 I was losing custody
 I never even saw that shit.
 How she played me
 And planned and sought it fit
 To turn that trick and financially she would benefit
 My first and probably only billboard hit
 Was gonna pay for my two year old's college
 I should have hid that shit
 So she couldn't spend that shit
 It took twenty years of working
 Just to earn that shit
 Now word for word I've listened,
 Heard and I'm done.

 Like you don't know.
 You act like you believe it.
 That you're in control.
 It's just your legal system though
 They don't think about you
 No they don't care about you.
 Now every man in America take back your control

 Like you don't know.
 You act like you believe it.
 That you're in control.
 It's just your legal system though
 They don't think about it
 No, they don't care about it
 Now every man in America take back your control.

 So I kept my business quiet
 Just like my lawyer said.
 And I tried to focus all
 My anger in my work instead.
 I was succeeding at self reliant
 But inside my soul is dead.
 I had to be the sole provider
 But not allowed to be the dad.
 Literally they took her from me.
 Legally they did! They did!
 But I'm not a fucking book
 So fuck your book in Lincoln I said
 Fuck the judge. Fuck that county
 Fuck your family too.
 Yeah fuck everybody that took my baby girl, Blue
 I'm way too strong
 I work my ass off all day long.
 And I'm gone for months at a time
 And you keep sitting there and lying
 Bitching "Come back home"
 I hate you, hate you god.
 And then you came back home
 And filed for another fucking divorce.
 I'm sick of crying I'm sick of you instead
 I'm not sick, or stuck in my head.

 Any other man in American can get screwed just like me.


 You won't understand, probably never will.
 Listen slowly I'll let you know the deal
 Lying ass play the judge with your crying ass
 You had your nose wide open when you saw the cash.
 Grimy bitch growing tired of you trying shit.
 Women run the courts, men provide the chips.
 Well eat up bitch until you had enough bitch.
 But take my kids; you can kiss both my nuts bitch.
 Telling lies cause daddy's always on the road.
 But you the one fucking like a groupie at a show.
 Money hungry so you try to take my youngest from me.
 You a dummy honey I'll chase you across the country.
 Bring the drama to you mama and you mama's mama
 Cause we all know you chasing after commas.
 Couple checks few houses and Gucci blouses
 You changing dicks like you changing outfits.
 Constitution now a day's got the daddies losing.
 Lot of fathers getting fucked like prostitution

[Chorus 3x]
