Liner Notes: 

I had today all mapped out. I knew exactly what I was going to do. Life had other ideas (turns out the 12V battery in my car has failed and needs to be replaced before I can back it out of the garage...)

"So it goes," as Kurt Vonnegut said.


Best-laid plans and scribbled lines
Time in hand but out of mind
Circumstances mean I'm caught
Took my chances, but fell short

Try my hardest not to care
How close I came to getting there

Though I've sustained a frantic rate
I think I'm much too tired to fight
Surprised by just how much I hate
Stopping with the finish line in sight

It's a hard lesson to be learned
Not always coming out on top
I know that next year I'll return
But for today I'm going to stop...

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

a good closing confession from someone who didnt quite make it to this finish line, but left a path of jewels on the track. still cannot access the music, so the lyric will have to suffice for now. ill e checking back at least throughout october.

Preach. godfuckingdamnitalltohell life! SERIOUSLY!
Every time I listen to your stuff, I am just amazed at how much you can pile into a song sonically, without one part getting in the way of another. Can I clone you, and your clone can come live with me, and mix the soundtrack of my life please?

"Try my hardest not to care / How close I came to getting there" is such a strong lyric, and the disappointment of being unable to reach a goal when you were so close is a deeply relatable feeling. Sorry to hear your day didn't go as you'd hoped, but thanks at least for treating us to this song!
