Rockbottom Sideways By Tara Caldwell/Dianne Bochsler (BMI) Why should I justify this night that lasted days when it don’t really hurt if you hit rockbottom sideways Standing in a windstorm, trying to get my shoes on Its hard to tell my left from my right I’m broke down busted, my senses can’t be trusted I don’t know what I was thinking tonight Traffic’s going by at 90 miles an hour I don’t even know what road it could be Something in the dark, silent like a shark has got a cold eye on me What am I supposed to do, who am I supposed to be There’s way too many people and they’re all damn hard to please Why should I justify this night that lasted days When it don’t really hurt if you hit rockbottom sideways Oh no, it don’t really hurt if you hit rockbottom sideways Searching my brain for a number and a name Anything to calm me down I can’t eat, I can’t sleep While the devil’s still playing that song Too much light on the edge of the night, Listen to the hammers pound A man on the street with rags on his feet says He’s gonna strike me down What am I supposed to do, who am I supposed to be There’s way too many people and they’re all damn hard to please Why should I justify this night that lasted days When it don’t really hurt if you hit rockbottom sideways Oh no, it don’t really hurt if you hit rockbottom sideways I’m thinking that I should go I’m thinking that I should go I’m thinking that I should, thinking that I should Thinking that I should go Spinning all around me, how can every sound be Something that I’ve just gotta hear Sense of desperation, no final destination I was thinking I would just disappear Lost on the water, I’m a prodigal daughter Swimming as the tide gets higher At 3550 N. Mississippi, Atlantis is rising in fire What am I supposed to do, who am I supposed to be There’s way too many people and they’re all damn hard to please Why should I justify this night that lasted days When it don’t really hurt if you hit rockbottom sideways Oh no, it don’t really hurt if you hit rockbottom sideways
