Lyrics: 

(c) 08.01.2019 time and ink

verse 1

the world tilts sideways
still i cling
the world owes no-one
a single thing
the world gutpunches me
and i'm left to gasp--
because god thinks i'm a badass.

verse 2

the truth hits strong
ten tons of truck
the truth cries long
blind to luck
the truth ends... in a deep morass
-- i wonder now if i can handle anything--
seems god thinks i'm a badass.

CHORUS:

god thinks i'm a badass
at least that's how it seems
my best days are worse
than the worst of your dreams
and if i think about it
i could fall apart at the seams
and i'm hopin' that changes fast--
'cause god thinks i'm a badass.

verse 3

the blues light is dim
it's a tough road to see
the blues serves no end
but to illuminate me
the blues aims to teach,
but it seems i'm master class--
what makes god think i'm a badass?

----------> SOLO

CHORUS

CODA/BRIDGE:

yes, it's a big ask
not sure i can last
it's why life
takes me to task
god thinks i'm a badass.

END

Gosh, I love this! And I agree with Bill about the Johnny Cash vibe. Artfully great!

Fantastic outcast/downcast kind of chorus - the depths of darkness are palpable. Well done.
