Pain — Right On lyrics

Remember Hannibal's march?
Yeh yeh yeh yeh.
Leaving elephant footprints
And leading his boys across the Alps.
I think I know how he felt
Yeh yeh yeh yeh.
Not just because it was tough,
But the way his country eventually sold him out.
I think of what must have been
His immense frustration.
There in a land far away
With the prize so close he could almost taste it
Only to hear his leaders say
"Way to go! You did it!
Even though you didn't do it, though.
Everybody here is feelin' right on! "
(so I'll) Drink a little, take a break,
A break I didn't really need.
But after that I know I'm goin' right on.
Remember the second World War? Yeh yeh yeh yeh.
A certain general George,
He got in trouble for trying way too hard.
I think I know how he felt yeh yeh yeh yeh.
I know it sounds crazy
But I tend to get too wrapped up in work.
But me & Patton seem to share
That immense frustration
(it's megalomaniacal I know)
Wanting something so bad
You can almost taste it
And dragged down by the voices from below
(they say) "Way to go! You're done!
You've gone as far as you will ever go!
Everybody here is feelin' right on! "
I'll drink a little, take a break,
A break I didn't really need.
But after that I know I'm going right on!
I know that I'm not alone.
The treasure of my heart
Is calling on the telephone.
I've got my friends around me,
They don't seem to hate me yet.
My family lends me cash
And they're not strict about the debt.
And the world is a place
Where the most important
Thing you can learn is this:
To submit to the will of the main upstairs
And don't get too wrapped up in yourself.
So I guess this is kind "Way to go! You did it!
Even though you didn't do it, though.
Everybody here is feelin' right on! "
(so I'll) Drink a little, take a break,
A break I didn't really need.
But after that I know I'm goin' right on.
Of an amateur prayer for
People trying to find their own way,
A request for strength
And a reminder to resist
What the well meaning naysayers say when they say
"Way to go! You did it!
Even though you didn't do it, though.
Everybody here is feelin' right on! "
(so I'll) Drink a little, take a break,
A break I didn't really need.
But after that I know I'm goin' right on.
"Way to go! You're done!
You've gone as far as you will ever go!
Everybody here is feelin' right on! "
I'll drink a little, take a break,
A break I didn't really need.
But after that I know I'm going right on!
