Watchin' The Rain lyrics

I spent a lot of time in the past
Kissin' other people's ass
But now I'm where I wanna be
Sittin' here watchin' the rain

Took off my shoes and dumped out the rocks
Got all my snakes back into the box
Now I'm where I wanna be
Sittin' here watchin' the rain

It's a crime to spend your time tryin' to comply
When the best you're gonna get if you're lucky is to just get by

I finally made some money and that's good
The price I had to pay was rude
But now I'm where I wanna be
Sittin' here watchin' the rain
