Holes 00:30
I've got holes in my shoes I've got holes in my head And all the things I can't lose Wind up lost in my bed And all the nights we spent talking over bass thumpin stereos Well I'm leaving tomorrow Don't touch my thoughts while I'm gone.
Rainclouds in Kokomo I've been high all the dreadlong day Making my twice baked potatoes I've been high all the dreadlong day Too many people to please please forgive me if I'm I've been high all the dreadlong day It's harder to walk and even hard to talk and to get up off the couch means give up. Well karma is a blatant slut who throws herself at you I swear it hits your skull like a two by four when your sitting on your stoop Just when I though I had escaped and I could be sad for a while Booby trap y hiding place its like now put your face back on and oh i told you I've been high all the dreadlong day I've been high all the dreadlong day I've been high all the dreadlong day.
Well Kaitlyn left early this morning making her way back to california and texting me "i love you"'s more the fourteen hour hall and my mind it knows she's gone for good and I'll move on fast as I probably should but my body's starting to go through the withdrawls Cause I rubbed her curves and stroked her hair and told her she was shaped like a pear and that was a compliment I thought But now i hear that means she's fat well she never got mad so riddle me that On the long drive home I bet she forgot And my greatest thoughts came while she was snoring like "why the fuck did I move to Oregon?" and "why's it when I'm finally stoked I run?" And I know to get an answer is rare but i guess I too am shaped like a pear Cause I must be a difficult thing to love.

On top of Old Smokey With no one I know Got someone who loves me On the Central Coast but suitors behind me are courting her well they're surfing my lovely fall Central Coast swell Well goodness grace by golly this is not my California my poor Vans are just too thin and I wear three layers in doors and in choosing to be lonely, it can get powerful lonesome my old friends blacked out in Isla Vista I'm smoking all alone And I couldn't even tell you what I do these days just kinda read my book and wake up late I'm a senior citizen the opposite of insane ever oh so comfortable and while Milk sleeps I draw stupid things I'd never show someone all I am colored in the lines if you drove up north I'd show you sometime.
