Originally written and recorded on Northey Sessions.


You ask what's got me down
I don't frequent this part of town, I don't know my way around
I'm always running late, it's hard to concentrate
my nerves have been shaking since I started my day
sometimes it feels like I'm caving in
Hey friend tell me what's new?
Let's get together for a beer or two; I always drink my fill
I know it's getting late, I find it hard to concentrate when the spirits are saturating my veins
sometimes it feels like I'm caving in
walk past the corner store
nothing good happens after 4 in the morning
hey Bryan get the fuck home
you said I made my bed and now I have to lie in it
well I think I'd rather sleep in the streets
so if I'm the burden, well goddamn, mercy me
at times I feel deserted but I'll still land on my own two feet
sometimes it feels like I'm caving in;
sometimes my mind feels like a prison
so from this bottle I'll drink deep,
then send me out to sea
