Over Everything

Album: Lotta Sea Lice (2017)
  • When I'm all alone on my own by my lonesome
    And there ain’t a single ‘nother soul around
    I wanna dig into my guitar bend a blues riff that hangs
    Over everything

    When I'm by myself and it’s daytime cuz down-under
    Or wherever it is I live when it's evening
    You know I speed-read the morning news and come up with my own little song also ...too

    When I step outside to a beautiful morning
    Where the trees are all waggin’, my hair-flag waving
    The scenery ragin’, my life/love cascading, and the smog hangs
    Over everything

    When I'm outside in a real good mood
    You could almost forget bout all the other things
    Like a big old ominous cloud in my periphery
    Don’t wanna talk about it
    Simultaneous I shout it

    When I was young I liked to hear music blarin'
    And I wasn't carin to neuter my jams with earplugs
    But these days I inhabitate a high-pitched ring over things
    So these days I plug em up

    When I'm strugglin with my songs I do the same thing too
    And then I crunch em up in headphones, cause why wouldn't you?
    You could say I hear you on several levels at high decibels
    Over everything

    When I'm all alone on my own by myself
    And there and another single one around I wanna dig into my guitar, bend a blues riff that hangs...
    Over everything
