Recorded in one take, without being completely written or performed in it's entirety. Fun and Weird.
Sound happens... an experiment in creativity.


I wanna believe, everything you're telling me,
But I ain't buying, anything you're selling me,
I'm just tryin' to get by, on my own dime.

Once tried, to take the righteous path,
But I missed, there's no goin' back,
this time.

Lazy love, Lazy love, Lazy love on the run.

So set sail, but keep the fire going,
These sails are torn, we're gonn a need to sew 'em,
If we want to get home.

The sea is cruel, for she's a wicked lover,
Wouldn't think twice, to take another,
man home, man down.

To the water, couldn't be no colder,
We ain't young, we're just getting older
You drag me down to your depths.
