lyrics

one more mile marker
one more crease in my face
one more well-oiled text message
from a unfamiliar place
I've been talking
been thinking about slowing down my pace
but like these tumble weeds
I ain't got a choice
where the air is pushing me

never amounted
to much of nothing
but I'm still here and I still think
thank counts for something
and I ain't starving
for attention
boy I'll gnaw your ear right off
about the high cost of free living

five hours on this barstools
they're talking shit about LA
all the drunken fools
proud of their cities and their states
the road goes on forever
the party never ends
when you got strangers like these
tell me who needs fucking friends

and I ain't waiting
on inpiration
but i know i'll find it near the bottom
of this libation
and I ain't starving for attention
boy I'll gnaw your ear right off
rationalizing this alcoholism

never amounted
to much of nothing
but I'm still here and I still think
thank counts for something
and I ain't starving
for attention
boy I could gnaw your ear right off
but tonight
for right now
in this moment
I think I'd rather listen
