Bored and Razed

Album: Help Us Stranger (2019)
  • Rolling a juke joint box in the corner
    Trolling myself in the mirror at night
    Keeping an eye on my grindstone future
    Staying away from the left and the right

    California born and raised
    But these days
    She's living with another
    Plastic features, perfect face
    What a waste
    And I'm still thinking of her

    Laying the cardinal sins on the table
    Pouring the coffee out on the grounds
    Changing the losses to wins if I'm able
    Switching the pitch to an audible sound

    Running the rounds of the mundane soldier
    Trading the cards and erasing the names
    Feeling a pounding, insane, colder
    Sounding, system, feeding the flames

    Well I'm Detroit bored and razed
    But these days
    I'm living with another
    You tell me she can be replaced
    But that's not the case
    I'm so lost without her

    Rolling a juke joint box in the corner
    Trolling myself in the mirror at night
    Keeping an eye on my grindstone future
    Staying away from the left and the right Writer/s: Brendan Benson, John Anthony White
    Publisher: Universal Music Publishing Group, BMG Rights Management
