lyrics

One lonely cigarette and
my own backyard
just trying to finish the words
these old sad songs
I wrote over this past year
I guess
I finally got over it
In fact I see a new face when I sing them
and
I'm making progress like it was my bed
Too early in the morning
Haven't learned my lesson
quick draw from your hip when I let down my defenses
my friends all say
I could be more optimistic

But I'm a pessimistic fuck
and opportunists seem to miss their mark on me
now a chicken with my head cut off
and only this moment of unknowing decides my fate
even if it doesn't mean anything to anyone but me
at least it meant something

My only hope is now
you read what I wrote down
READ WHAT I WROTE DOWN
It's right in front of you
READ WHAT I WROTE DOWN
keep a song to sing too
