Dub-infused Klezmer Ska....a playful, self-defacing ode to perseveration and chronic worry.

Lyrics

Song for My Addiction

I’ve got this hole, its bigger than you see
I had a heart but it fell off of my sleeve
I want to run but I can’t seem to leave
I try to sing but I can’t even breathe

Hard to stand still when your body is itching
Hard to look honest when your face keeps twitching
Give me a name for this terrible affliction
And la la la la la this is a song for my addiction

I’ve got some courage, it’s fear that makes me brave
I made my bed now I’m digging my own grave
Thinking is like drinking, just take one more sip
And if you listen to your head your mind will start to slip

Hard to look happy when you’re stuck in this depression
Hard to be friendly when you’re feeling this aggression
Give me some kind of positive expression
And la la la la la this is a song for my obsession

Hard to be present when you’re listening to these voices
Hard to decide when you’re plagued by all these choices
List your credentials and I’ll list my diagnoses
And la la la la la this is a song for my psychosis

Hard to stand still when your body is itching
Hard to look honest when your face keeps twitching
Give me a name for this terrible affliction
And la la la la la this is a song for my addiction
