The Bus That Couldn't Not Slow Down

By midimachine on September 30, 2016 6:19 am

paper plectrum and a potty mouth
i'm far to old to do this, and it shows
i can't delineate my age from my achievements
i should've done this all so long ago

but i know it's not my fault that i was brought up battered
and i know it's not my fault my childhood was shattered
and i know it's no excuse to live my life in stasis
but it's hard to live when you're told that your anxieties are baseless

i haven't been to work in years
i stay indoors to hedge my bets against myself
and each criterion is yet another reason
to employ literally anybody else

but i know it's not my fault that i was brought up battered
and i know it's not my fault my childhood was shattered
and i know it's no excuse to dwell on my misgivings
but it's hard to live when you tell yourself that your life is not worth living

paper plectrum and a potty mouth
i'm far too old to be the man i've been
so i will keep on walking east
where i can sink into the sea

Those are amazing lyrics. Your arrangement & production is tight & focused and those harmony lines are sublime. I had to listen to this one twice. Downloaded. So good.
