Although I'm unequipped For an offshore excursion From this gospel ship I need a healthy diversion An emergency urge If only just a fraction Or a step or two beyond I'm not responsible for my actions

Listen to this piece from another tortured artist Divorced shortly after they lost their new babe Retreated to a cabin with no running water But found an old dulcimer and learned how to play Recorded on a smartphone, the battery was draining Imagine the session and tell me if I'm wrong To listen though it's sad 'cause it makes me feel better Believe in the power of the therapy of song

Sandpaper face What should I do with this sandpaper face I scrape and I shave And comes back the next day What a waste Make way For the sandpaper face Hollywood scruff What should I do with this Hollywood scruff I grow and I cut But it isn't enough This is tough No luck With the Hollywood scruff Indie-rock beard What should I do with this indie-rock beard My facial career Has taken me years This is weird No fear For my indie-rock beard

Why'd I even ever think That I could bring this up I should have known it's futile And that you would soon erupt I'm at my wits end Why didn't I seek council When I knew that you would shout 'Cause when you shout it's then I shout And then I get kicked out I'm at my wits end I can tell by the way that you are looking at me I'll be on the burner for a century Lets table this discussion now indefinitely I'm at my wits end

I'd prefer to lead us in the opposite direction Where sleep is rest and love is affection End the innuendo and the lyrical gymnastics Where doing it is doing it without the italics Lets make love . . . Love

I thought that I was walking in the door But there is more I was with the guys But looking in her eyes Now "Somewheres it's my fault" I thought that I was brushing on my teeth But underneath I'm wiping my brow 'Cause it escapes me now And "Somewheres it's my fault" I thought that I was getting all undressed So I attest Something is askew And I wish that I knew 'Cause "Somewheres it's my fault" I thought that I was getting into bed It's like I said Everything seemed right When I kissed her goodnight But "Somewheres it's my fault"

Rich, white, men Always complaining Complaining about fairness Rich, white, men Often are yelling Are yelling at the TV Rich, white, men Often are sleeping Are sleeping with the TV Rich, white, men Always complaining Complaining about fairness Rich, white, men Have no one to blame but themselves when they fail We have no one to blame but ourselves when we fail I have no one to blame but myself when I fail

I'm not saying that you're saying that I'm just saying that if we perhaps We could work this out as adults We could resolve this to a cheaper result You give me legal fees I freeze and I can't speak Until I speak to my lawyer You won't hear a peep So leave a message at the beep Adults like kids will pick on the weak Waiting for the perfect opportunity to cheat Adults will often add money to the fight And the one's with the most are most often proven right They give us legal fees We freeze and we can't speak Until I speak to my lawyer You won't hear a peep So leave a message at the beep If on the TV you decline the interview The viewer can assume the accusations are true But your lawyer says freeze and you can't speak They give you legal fees and we don't hear a peep
