i write myself a note to speak less and try to hear
when talking turns to feeling my words aren't very clear
i analyze the things i say i turn myself to stone
the words i say are useless now like plastic beads they throw

sometimes i drive real slow and take the curves with care
forget about the mirror's light i contemplate what's fair
i ask you what i ought to know i'm feeling guilty all the time
you're in this thing and close to me
I hope everything is fine

it happens all the time
and it wont be pushed away
i feel it down within my chest
i don't mind the things you say

the idea dawned on me last week or was it twenty years ago
careless laughs are tossed right off and weeds of anger grow
my friends are all around me now no attacks come from the rear
so take it easy take it slow
i think the coast is clear

“The through the roof here both melodically and lyrically, bolstered by a band that nails the songs with pinpoint perfection.... The vocal rock solid on what can only be deemed one of the most pleasantly surprising releases of the summer. This one rests near the very top of the ‘highly recommended’ list.”
—Bill Hurley, The Alternate Root
