I’m a Could-Have-Been
Matthew Hoffman

I’m a hog. In other words, human.
You maybe want 24 suits and him
They gotta give twelve yachts.
Its chemical, you can’t do nothing.

I’m a Could-Have-Been
But it ain’t what you call yourself.
I could write my whole will on a postage stamp
I’m among the world of missing men.

It’s a free country
We got a check and balance system here.
You can express and manifest yourself
But the other guy can check up on you.

The chain is strong like its weakest link
And that was me.
Yet you can never tell the way you stand
By the way you’re sitting down.
