Low Roller

For everything I want, I will have to try
Nothing comes for free, always there’s a price
For taking bad advice

I was born to laugh, also known to cry
Living in between, living for tonight
Living for today

I fought the laws of distraction
I kept the wolves at bay
For every Oscar I’m given twice I fail, thrice I fail
I raised an insurrection when the coup de etat derailed
My younger ways of dealing out the window what the hell
My fortunes are fairly well
My voice as it travels farther on better songs
And a horn to play when the words have come and gone

Turn the lights down Ma
Turn the lights out cuz we’re sleeping
Turn the lights down Ma cuz it’s time that we go to bed
Then the lilac calls and she wants you to believe her
Then the lilac calls so you follow her down the lane…


from Old Mill Park, released March 3, 2015
