lyrics

In my country, Johnny, irony is rife
There’s a law called Sod’s and it screws up all our lives
And if you want it bad, I’ll give you some of mine
But I don’t think you do

We all want something that we can never have
And what we’ve got sits wasted, ignored upon our laps
We never see the reasons behind the circumstance
But I am just like you, I am just like you

You wait for the water, and get not a single wave
But you were never meant to die in Nickajack Cave.

Oh, the times we’ve tried, with our backs against the wall
And we can’t even succeed in ending it all
Some, they don’t believe in fate or higher law
But Johnny, me and you, we know it for sure

For what is life without some faith or destination?
But a certain stumble into devastation
If we don’t keep our eyes directed to the skies
We’re headed for the ground, Johnny, you and I

Of your own free will, you walked into your grave
But you were never meant to die in Nickajack Cave.

Had you left us then and there, that’s how you’d’ve been remembered
Another wasted life, another man surrendered
Had you left us then and there, that’s how you’d’ve been remembered
Another suicide, another failed contender

Thank God, J.R, that your life was saved
And you were never meant to die in Nickajack Cave
No you were never meant to die in Nickajack, Nickajack, Nickajack
You were never meant to die in Nickajack Cave
