        Eb
Lookin' past the edge of moonlight,
       Ab               Eb
Hoping for the break of day.
Eb
Seein' only cracks in sidewalks, not 
    Bb
the paved city way.
        Eb
Lookin' down this road to glory in a 
Ab              Eb
car designed to fail.
Eb
Breathin' cold winds of freedom 
         Bb              Eb
while my mind remains in jail. 
          
            (2x)

       Ab
With a strong steady tailwind, all I 
Eb             Bb
see is pourin' rain.
  Ab
A victim of a brutal mindset walks
     Eb            Bb
this lonely son of shame.
            Eb
Because the grass is always 
                Ab             Cm
greener, I will sit here in my pain.
Eb 
Lookin' at the wealth around me. 
       Ab       Bb     Eb
Woe is me, this son of shame.


          Eb
Well its pouring snow on the 
                     Ab
outside, but all Im seeing is the 
Eb
slush.
Eb
Looking at the wealth around me, 
         Bb
but just thinkin' I aint got much.
         Eb
Im that man thats prone to worry 
        Ab            Eb
in that far off glory land.
Eb
Who do I think Im kidding? No one 
Bb            Eb
cares or understands.

Ab
With a strong steady tailwind, all I 
Eb             Bb
see is pourin' rain.
    Ab
A victim of a brutal mindset walks
     Eb            Bb
this lonely son of shame.
            Eb
Because the grass is always 
                Ab             Cm
greener, I will sit here in my pain.
Eb 
Lookin' at the wealth around me. 
       Ab       Bb     Eb
Woe is me, this son of shame.

    Eb                           Ab
And then I start to wonder about all 
               Eb
that Ive been through.
Eb
I opened up my eyes and see that 
Bb
every day is new.
     Eb                     Ab
I consider all my ways; the paths 
            Cm 
that Ive pursued...
Eb                      Ab 
Man, Im so ashamed as I sit here 
       Bb      Eb
with a life misused.

       Ab 
With a mountain set before me all I 
Eb      Bb
see is victory.
      Ab
But I know theres someone out 
              Eb              Bb
there and His mind remains on me.
         Eb                
Says the Father over his children, "It 
    Ab             Cm
was for you that I came.
           Eb
Youre the apple of my eye, son, my
Ab       Bb     Eb Ab 
precious son of shame...
   Eb  Bb         Eb Ab   Eb Bb 
...shame...son of shame...shame...son
   Eb
of shame."
