overhaul / undertow

Friday, November 15, 2002

Well Jacksonville's a city with a hopeless streetlight
Seems like you're lucky if it ever changes red to green.
I was born in an abundance of inherited sadness
with 50-cent picture frames bought at a five and dime.

Sit around, dream away the place I’m from
used to feel so much,
now I just feel numb
could go out tonight, but I ain’t sure what for
call a friend or two
I don’t know anymore...
Sit and listen to the rain
Gonna ride down to the river where it runs
gonna watch tv,
pray for decent reruns
sit around and dream away what I’ve become
used to feel so much,
now I just feel dumb

I’ll never understand this emptiness,
I’ll never really try to understand, I guess
