A basement demo of a new tune for the boys back home.


"Fall came a little bit late last year, I tried real hard not to hate it here"
and that's where I last left off.
I was eager to change in a way I couldn't dream of, ready to pick up and leave at the scene of the crime, to seek what I thought I sought.

But now I know a little bit about the way that people operate,
yeah it made me sick the day I realized that I can relate to normal walks of life, there's not much confidence to confiscate,
I guess we can't just sit and wait.

I'm riding shotgun sleepy-eyed, with the AC off on the passenger side.
I'm feeling gentle, I'm keeping calm today.
And who's to say what's wrong or right? I thought about it all last night.
I wanna go about my life in a different way.

My light is a candle flickering in a fireplace. I'm doing the best I can.
Even though I'd be much better off on the nightstand, the wick hasn't burned out yet.
And I know that if you get real close, you can warm your hands.

I remember sitting in the rain so I could write these words,
the story of my life so far or something no one's ever heard.
I know I'll be doing well as long as I stay well-rehearsed,
I just have to write it first.

I lost track of the time again, I'm sorry.
You probably know by now that I do that.
But attention is a thing that acts on impulse, and when we try to tell it what to do,
we lose grip of the things our attention was smart enough to grab.
