This is a song I just finished
I wrote it in about 15 minutes and
I’ve been working on it for 15 years
So it’s a little rought so bear with me.
This is a cover.
it’s about love.
It’s about stopping the violence.
My girlfriend just broke up with me a few weeks ago
when I stopped doing smack after a three day drinking binge,
so I wrote this.
I wrote it while I was high on mushroom tea.
I wrote it in the bathroom after the Flag Day parade.
This is my first time performing in public,
and my last time here.
I moving to New York.
I’m touring Europe.
This weekend I’ll be playing at Joe’s Coffee Shack.
This next one is from my CD.
I recorded it about 4 years ago and
It hasn’t been released yet.
I’m selling them right over there at that table
I also have t-shirts, underwear, and headbands for sale.
Anyway. . .I’m going to do two more . . .oh
