Track Name: Good Grief
oh brother, i'm out of breath
there's nothing i want more than just to get some rest
oh man i, i made a mess
it played out nothing like i had guessed
i'm sorry, if i'm more impressed
when you find a way to keep yourself dressed
but no longer will i digress
there's a few things that i've got to get off my chest

oh brother, i don't wanna stay
stuck in the motions of everyday
i've got to, gotta get away
but there's something that keeps me coming back to this place
i don't know how many days
before i stray and lose hold of the reigns
but don't tell me, don't say it's not okay
to once every so often just escape

good grief man, i'm already sick
of all the nights i've spent laying the bricks
so count me, count me in
if you ever feel like abandoning ship
i know i, i know i'm not too bold
but that don't mean your shoulder has to stay so cold
i'm trying to take control
but each day to pass i feel so fucking old

been some long years and i've still got time
it'll be another one before i finally find
some motivation to get me aligned
to find out of what i'm comprised
i'm in no rush to expose my life
so lock the door and pass the dime
cause i've got grief and it's not the good kind.
