I'm working feverishly putting the final touches on the full-length record I will be releasing here soon. This track will be on it, though we've been mucking around with it since this version.

Stay tuned for more.

Cheers,
Bo

lyrics

When I knew the place was burning
I knew I'd need a ride
Eight floors up I worked and watched
The smoke and cinder fly
Then we met up at Cutters

I knew right then I'd be lit long before the fire died
But I didn't know I couldn't treat you right until I tried

I get it from my mother
Or on her family's side
This pining through the days
And pacing endlessly at night
Or maybe from my father

The day that I was born I knew something wasn't right
But I didn't know I couldn't treat you right until I tried

What kind of man can't clear his own
Bars he's set himself so low?

But I knew the place was burning
