Bad Luck (Hephaestus' Song)

from God Complex by Monk Turner

/

lyrics

I'm just a fatalistic fool I'm always getting trampled
(A victim of circumstance)
I want to do what's right And set a good example
But I never get a chance
Or maybe I've just got bad luck

I'm a child of royalty I should have all the answers
(Privilege only gets you so far)
I married a beauty queen But it turned into a disaster
I didn't stand a chance
Or maybe I've just got bad luck

(Baby it's just part of the plan)
But it's all too much for just one man
(Your destiny has been determined)
And maybe I've just got bad luck
Black cats follow me
Everywhere I go
I wish I could break free
But I'm in the undertow
My fate is written in the stars
I fear a retrograding Mars
Or maybe I'm just stuck
Or maybe I've just got bad luck

Solo

(Baby it's just part of the plan)
But it's all too much for just one man
(Your destiny has been determined)
And maybe I've just got bad luck maybe I've just got bad maybe I've just got bad
Baby I've just got bad luck
