about

The majority of these songs were written during the extremely demanding Chicago winter of 2013-14. Rerecorded this July in Humboldt Park and Jefferson Park, Chicago. Thanks for bothering.

Track Name: A Day
days go by fast on the busy river bed
days go by slower when you're sober
wait another minute--feels like an eternity
the government is greedy
what will we do when they take over the world?

a day goes by so slow when you're
putting in your eight to four.
a day goes by so slow

where would you go?
Track Name: Don't Write Me Off
i'm the best at making the worse first impression
clamoring up and my thoughts escape with no direction
thinking out loud is my idea of self-expression
s-s-s-s-stuttering at the most important interception

don't write me off
don't write me off
you wrote it off

i'm the best at making the worst first impression
repeating words into run on, run on, run on, run on sentences
talking out of time is nto a good way to make friends
sh-sh-sh-sh-shuttering at the thought of her and i making a connection

don't write me off
don't write me off
dont' write me off
don't write me off
you won't it off
Track Name: All The Way Down
i tried to be a good boy for God
but the devil knew my name
i tried to be a good boy for God
but the devil knew my dna
i sought to be a good son for dad
but the devil was too bad
i tried to be a good boy for God
but the devil was too strong

and trying is lying
trying is lying
the last thing you see

all the way down
all the way down
all the way down
(he won't carry me)
all the way down
(no i won't go)
all the way down
(he won't carry me)
all the way down
(he won't carry me)
all the way down

do i have enough faith to be forgiven?
Track Name: That Bad
did no wrong yet you were harmed
go play in the park
can't outrun the car
when the smoke was too dark

why'd you have to do that?
could of it had been that bad?
why'd you have to do that?

living in a hurricane
vortex of bewilderment
Track Name: I'll Wait Outside
i'll wait outside
while you collect yourself
a few blocks around the corner
if you can't bare to see me now
standing on the chicago sewer cap--cause it's cold
but not for long--cause it smells like chicago sewage
i'll wait a few more minutes and
after that i guess i'll get the hit
after that i guess i'll change my mind again
the crows keep me company
along the gate around the mortuary
wow--guess i'll wait outside
Track Name: Too Much Time Alone
been spending too much time alone, nobody here is home
is it because i refuse to own a phone?
been spending too much time in bed, too much time in my head
where the river flowed, is just a dried up, cracked up ledge
been spending too much money on junk
my cats don't know how to talk
and i forgot how to talk to anyone else
used to be outgoing, way back in my high school prom
now i'm spending to much time alone
been spending too much time alone, drawing over the articles
they say you can't be bored, you're just boring
how did i get so far? i can't leave my own man's yard
i feel so clumsy, poor, fucking burnt out, and rejected
how to did detach myself how can i reassemble it
when the paint cost so damn much i guess i'll use the computer paper.
Track Name: Stray
i was facing the wrong way on my trip back home
and i was directing my soul into a black--the blackest of holes
what did i see? what did i say? forever sealing my fate
my arms feel like play-dough, legs scattered legos,
and i'm not a kid anymore to play
what did i need? what did i crave?
frivolously wanting more of the same
my luck is tortoise rolling down a hillside
landing upright in a puddle of mud
my hope is a hungry wolf howling at a half waning moon
where i roam? where i stray? making it so so not okay

but maybe one day it may
but i'm afraid, afraid
afraid that it won't

stray
Track Name: Dillema
oh why?
every now and then can't comedy be funny without being perverse
dark jokes, dark jokes, you're not cool unless you curse
oh why?
does everybody say the name Jesus Christ
in every movie, TV, and book you read
why oh why

i am the astronaut at the bottom of the sea
the scuba-diver in the furthest galaxy

but you can't have, both feet in shoe, that won't do
but you might have, possible eternal life, wouldn't that be nice?
Track Name: Sayonara Sadness
sayonara sadness i gotta do
the things that i've been storing in
the back of my basement
what is today? and what is time too?
wasn't for sure i was alive
well i opened my guitar and i opened my mind
and eventually became my therapy
sayonara sadness i'm saying
good riddance to these self-abusing habits
there's not place for pain in the long ride tot he golden gate
deliverance from the doldrums
deliverance from despair
cause despair is unfair
and when you laugh
and you laugh with everyone
and you laugh with everyone
but when you cry
you cry
alone
you cry alone
alone
and who wouldn't want to laugh with everyone
who wouldn't want to laugh with everyone
laugh with everyone
