about

Decided to screw around with the Cadd9 chord, my keyboard, and the lapsteel my dad gave me last weekend. I'm glad this one sounds new and different. I wasn't a fan at first, but adding the extra elements helped sell me on it.

lyrics

Verse 1:
I'll keep talking
Till it goes off
Hit the stopwatch
Prices go up

I won't act like
I'm that clueless
New for this year
Newer nuisance

Chorus:
I've searched every drawer
For a smart thing
A parting word

Locked inside the dresser
Was an autograph
And tangled cords

Verse 2:
Gift cards repurposed
For no purpose
Like a small storm
Gentle, nervous

Forcing progress
Makes it harder
Abstract angel
Hero, martyr

Chorus:
I've searched every drawer
For a smart thing
A parting word

Locked inside the dresser
Was an autograph
And tangled cords

The sun's not out
But I'm outside
The sun's not out
But I'm outside

And I can't go choking on my pride

Bridge:
I've known it was projection all along
But I played myself, a voluntary pawn
Can't back out when I'm nervous
I can't back out without purpose

I can't back out now
