about

A peppy tune about how you shouldn't kill yourself even if you're a waste of space. Written in late 2003, recorded October 2015.

lyrics

No, not in this world would unlucky I stand a chance with this girl
No, it could not be, I could not deserve this good life, this family

And I said if we should waste four walls, then that's reason enough
Well, it's reason enough to go on
If we should waste our all, is it reason enough? Is it reason enough?
Is it reason enough? It's enough, now it's gone away

I, lost in some lie that you could be standing it standing so still
I won't even try, watching my life slip to coals through the grill

Just a little insecurity blowing harder
Just my fatalism pissing me off this wall
I see the future, and it's really not so downhearted
But optimism is vague, and I can be a plague
Please don't let me drive you away

No, not in a day could something so precious be frittered away
No, not my last hope, plenty more mornings to wake up the pope

Yes, it's reason enough, it's enough, now it's gone away, yeah
