From the album Hippy Fiasco Rides Again
I'm on my way to a party
C D G
but I don't feel like seeing anyone.
Rather stay home and just feel guilty
but I told everybody I'd come.
I'll strap my guitar to my shoulder,
hardly sing, I'll just sit there and strum.
Probably feel a little older.
Torn between the beer and the bourbon.
Been there a hundred times or more
and I'm pretty sure,
even tho I swore "Never again!"
I can never win.
I'm in bed beside a girl now
and I wanted to come, but I didn't want to kiss.
Too late to blame it one the world now.
It is I who has come to this.
I am hooked on that heartbeat,
that heartbeat I can't resist.
It's what keeps me breathing,
but is it about the size of my fist?
Watching TV and eating ice cream
I should have just put some in a bowl.
I remember telling myself as I washed a spoon,
"Man, you should just put some in a bowl."
But I brought in a whole carton
and sat down in front of some show.
Even long after it started hurting,
if there had been, i'd have eaten some more.
