GOTTA BE A REASON
Alec Benjamin


There's gotta be a reason that I'm here on Earth
Gotta be a reason for the dust and the dirt
The changing of the seasons never changed my hurt
So what's it worth, what's it worth?
With another shot of whiskey and another sip of gin
Another drop of poison that is slowly sinkin' in
If we're going down together better take another hit
We won't be here forever so let's make the best of it

Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

Walking down to the burial ground with a sad song in his brain
General Cloud is an old man now but it feels like yesterday
He was on the front lines, stranded on the beach
Crawling to his best friend, floatin' in the sea
But he didn't make it, he still can't believe
How arbitrary fate is, he says...

There's gotta be a reason that I'm here on Earth
Gotta be a reason for the dust and the dirt
The changing of the seasons never changed my hurt
So what's it worth, what's it worth?
With another shot of whiskey and another sip of gin
Another drop of poison that is slowly sinkin' in
If we're going down together better take another hit
We won't be here forever so let's make the best of it

Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

She went down to her job in town with a sad song in her heart
33 with a wasted dream to become a movie star
Living outta a suitcase, serving at a bar
Saving up some pennies working after dark
Is she gonna make it? She still can't believe
How arbitrary fate is, she says...

There's gotta be a reason that I'm here on Earth
Gotta be a reason for the dust and the dirt
The changing of the seasons never changed my hurt
So what's it worth, what's it worth?
With another shot of whiskey and another sip of gin
Another drop of poison that is slowly sinkin' in
If we're going down together better take another hit
We won't be here forever so let's make the best of it

Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

There's gotta be a reason that I'm here on Earth
Gotta be a reason for the dust and the dirt
The changing of the seasons never changed my hurt
So what's it worth, what's it worth
With another shot of whiskey and another sip of gin
Another drop of poison that is slowly sinkin' in
If we're going down together better take another hit
We won't be here forever so let's make the best of it

Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
