Acoustic version I recorded of this song new years eve 2014 in Antwerp Belgium. The full band version appears on FAT wreck release "The Speakeasy" by my band smoke or fire.


God I wish I were a bird. I'd fly towards the sun and I'd never return to this place. It's such a disgrace. I'd cut my arms and my legs off and burn up in space. All these other worries and problems we have are something I never wanted or asked for, but I'm too left brained, you're still away, and I'm still awake. So I walked to the edge of the earth. I pissed off the side, and I cursed every name I could think of. Yours came first. Just thought you should know I'd been thinking of you. All these other worries and problems we have are something I never wanted or asked for but I'm still awake, you're still away, and I need a drink. So I'm walking on a sunday night. I'm looking for a neon light to carry me home. I have no place to go. I'm no sight to see.
