Lyrics

My Richter scale
Is passed a million
I’m clocking in
At about a billion
smacked by the nail
But the hammer is not the one smacking
Life is not a box of chocolates
And sometimes shit happens

Go to the therapist
Tell them everything
They give you some medicine
But it don’t do a thing
And you just wanna run away
Send this whole life packing
Life is not a box of chocolates
And sometimes shit happens

Sometimes its hard to
Get in your right mind
When the same shit
happens time after time

I wanna be bird
In no harms way
So I can fly
Far from yesterday
You best believe
I won’t be looking back
Cause there was never a prize
In this Cracker Jack
Life is not a box of chocolates
But I coulda told you that
Sometimes shit happens
And that’s a fact
