I’ve decided due to some time constraints to video record a song I wrote several years ago. While this is kind of an old song, it’s been under revision for a while. I keep adding and taking away bits and pieces. I don’t seem on track to writing a new song/recording every day, but I’ll keep trying. Every day is a new day!
It’s been a long time since I’ve done this
Is there a right way to it all?
What’s the protocol?
Should I stay until the morning?
Is it better if I leave?
Should I try to make conversation?
Should I try to earn my keep?
Is this the right thing to do
spending nights in stranger’s arms trying to forget you
And really who am I to blame?
I’m sinking with this ship because it’s how you play the game.
All the bad things that have happened
Caustic words I can’t recall
breaches in the wall
Am I crying for no reason?
Can’t make sense of it all
A promise led to treason
Now follow protocol
Is this the right thing to do?…
We’ll laugh at this
Seedy bars and boxed wine
Broken locks and petty crime
You take your hit
Slowly going down
on a sinking battleship
We are slowly going down
All fired up to win
But now we’re sinking on the grid
