Stay Down

  • Micheladas in the afternoon
    Lie on the couch in a rented room
    Watchin' Jeopardy without the sound
    It's easy to stay down

    Quick mistakes and long goodbyes
    Hold-over truths and necessary lies
    I caught a train that was backwards-bound
    It's easy to stay down

    Stay down when your mind has been cleared
    And your trail can't be found
    Stay down with your eye to the sky
    And your ear to the ground

    Down by the pool with all my brand-new friends
    Re-writin' letters that I never sent
    Declinin' invitations into town
    It's easy to stay down

    Slowly admit that you have had your fun
    The girl you loved and every word you sung
    All the profane that you thought profound
    It's time now to stay down

    Stay down when the smoke is cleared
    And you name can be found
    Stay down with your head in the clouds
    And your eyes to the ground

    Feel the sting of the final blow
    What could've been, you don't care or know
    Don't try to go another round
    Stay down Writer/s: Taylor Zachary Goldsmith
