Lyrics of High Cost Of Living

I was just a normal guy life was just a nine to five
With bills and pressure piled up to the sky
She never asked she knew I'd been
Hangin' with my wilder friends lookin' for some other
Way to fly
And three days straight was no big feat
To get by with no food or sleep
And crazy was becomin' my new norm
I'd pass out on the bedroom floor
And sleep right through the calm before the storm
My life was just an old routine
Every day the same damn thing
I couldn't even tell
I was alive
I tell you the high cost of livin'
Ain't nothin' like the cost of livin' high
That Southern Baptist parkin' lot
Is where I'd go to smoke my pot
Sit there in my pickup truck and pray
And starin' at that giant cross
Just reminded me that I was lost
And it just never seemed to point the way
As soon as Jesus turned his back
I'd find my way across the tracks
Lookin' just to score another deal
With my back against that damned eight ball
I didn't have to think or talk or feel
My life was just an old routine
Every day the same damn thing
I couldn't even tell
I was alive
I tell you the high cost of livin'
Ain't nothin' like the cost of livin' high
My whole life went through my head
Layin' in that motel bed
Watchin' as the cop kicked in the door
I had a job and a piece of land
My sweet wife was my best friend
But I traded that for cocaine and a whore
With my new found sobriety
I've got the time to sit and think
Of all the things I had and threw away
This prison is much colder than
That one that I was locked up in just yesterday
My life is just an old routine
Every day the same damn thing
Hell I can't even tell if I'm alive
I tell you the high cost of livin'
Ain't nothin' like the cost of livin' high
I tell you the high cost of livin'
Ain't nothin' like the cost of livin' high
Better leave that stuff alone
