Lyrics

One got caught for movin', he spent two years in the pen
Never thought he'd make it out, but the world let him back in
Until something deep inside said I'm as guilty as a sin
From the day that he was set free, never got caught again

He's skimming right along, on pure good luck
If the world crashed down around me said I would not give a
You got to know just what you got, so when you ain't got nothin' at all
You won't be crawling 'til the day you die after the first time that you fall

One more came into this world but not by her own choice
Many times she spoke when nobody heard her voice
When the world opened its arms, she said I'm free at last
From that very day not a single day has passed 

She's skimming right along, on pure good luck
If the world crashed down around me said I would not give a
You got to know just what you got, so when you ain't got nothin' at all
You won't be crawling 'til the day you die after the first time that you fall

Yet another picked up the bill to slave the best years of his life
Bowing to the toilet bowl whose opinions were his knife
And when he crossed the finish line he almost wished that he was dead
'Cause her pockets are lined with diamonds while his are filled with lead

He's skimming right along, on pure good luck
If the world crashed down around me said I would not give a
You got to know just what you got, so when you ain't got nothin' at all
You won't be crawling 'til the day you die after the first time that you fall

Skimming right along, on pure good luck
If the world crashed down around me said I would not give a
You got to know just what you got, so when you ain't got nothin' at all
You won't be crawling 'til the day you die after the first time that you fall
