lyrics

They used to cheer for me. I'd wave through all the parades. Confetti poured from the rooftops for I made not a mistake. But as age crept in, my senses faltered; so did their memories. I was reviled into a corner of who I used to be.

CHORUS
While the world turns inside out, once it all happens
...I'll be chillin' on the front porch of my log cabin.
END CHORUS

They would look out for me. The scum, the dregs of the town. Ya never knew when I would drop by. I could do so without a sound. They laugh at me now more than talk-shows without an ounce of fear. I want what they had always hoped for, wish I could disappear.

REPEAT CHORUS

They would welcome me with open arms and say "Job well done!" Now they all whisper against me I'm, supposed to remain shunned. There's no glory in a lifetime spent giving yours away, but that is not why I chose my path back in my hey-day.

REPEAT CHORUS
