Liner Notes: 

It doesn't all make a ton of sense but at least it's catchy.

Lyrics: 

“Where’ve you been,” everybody says
“I haven’t seen you in such a long long…”
Where to begin? I was off the edge
Misplaced my mind, and it was hard to find

Somebody, anybody, tell me where to go
To lose what I need to lose cuz I don’t know

I’ve been down, but I’m still here in the middle of it, in the middle of it
I’ve been down, but I’m still here in the middle of it, in the middle of it baby

Chemicals run round my brain
Looking for me in all the cracks
Bottles of pills and sugar cane
Whole weeks wasted, whole months gone away

Somebody, anybody, tell me where to go
To lose what I need to lose cuz I don’t know

I’ve been down, but I’m still here in the middle of it, in the middle of it
I’ve been down, but I’m still here in the middle of it, in the middle of it baby

August heat’s just a closin’ in
Turn the air conditioner to last year
My balance sheet’s not showing a win
I don’t blame it, someone lost the cashier

Somebody, anybody, tell me where to go
To lose what I need to lose cuz I don’t know

I’ve been down, but I’m still here in the middle of it, in the middle of it
I’ve been down, but I’m still here in the middle of it, in the middle of it baby
I’ve been down, but I’m still here in the middle of it, in the middle of it
I’ve been down, but I’m still here in the middle of it, in the middle of it baby

Dang, I love the way you sing this thing. It's a really compelling song with a great chorus. I love that line about needing to know where to go to lose what you need to lose.

this is my favorite of yours so far. i love the way wach part gets more melodic, more dynamic, then falls so softly back to the first breath before taking off again. excellent construction and performance. i especially love the way you sing the phrase 'in the middle of it.'

Bang! And you’re off with attention-getting vocals - sort of a Stevie Nicks/Janis Joplin mix. I salute you!

Catchy as hell! Maybe another kind of hell of what the person in the song lives through

Music 2 I love how the rambling lyric shows the state of mind of the narrator. Another song where we catch a glimpse of what must be a massive backstory. BTW my first ever completed song (which I did not play much, tried to cover like five topics LOL) was titled I'm Still Here. In my recent reading discovered that Stephen Sondheim used the title in the musical Follies and that inspired me last night to take another POV on the title.
