Lyrics

got my share
“i've got more rhymes than I've got gray hairs. And that's a lot because I've got my share” —MCA, from “Sure Shot,” by The Beastie Boys
 
i nearly got broken back there
thought i was breathin' my last
the edges were foldin' in god-awful dark
and god, they was comin' in fast
 
all i had learned to rely on
i'd seen exposed
as nothin' but nightmares trollin' for light
under cover of holier robes
 
three-hundred-fifty-six days in a year
twelve silver cans in a half-rack of beer
and i ain't gonna bother to count my grey hairs
trust me when i say that i've got my share
i got my share
 
one too many low kicks to the gut
had taken my air
both of my lungs half-dead on the vine
just hangin' there
 
i wanted to carve my name in a tree
to prove i could grow something new
but i'd hate to hurt the unwary
with an involuntary tattoo
 
three-hundred-fifty-six days in a year
twelve silver cans in a half-rack of beer
and i ain't gonna bother to count my grey hairs
trust me when i say that i've got my share
i got my share
