lyrics

it's fairly quiet at the bottom
when you've passed the point of
having something left to give

i've heard it silent
at the end when you question whether or not
you really lived.

but now that the weather's warm
let us take it for granted.
there is no light, there is no tunnel,
this is just life.

but if I could only
make myself believe
when I say "I don't care"
then maybe I would get somewhere.

some say there's nothing at the end
and others say you start again
while others try and play pretend.

I know I don't know
and no belief will change
what will happen.

but now that the weather's warm
let us take it for granted.
there is no light, there is no tunnel,
this is our life.

but if I could only
make myself believe
when I say "I don't care"
then maybe I would get somewhere.

maybe I would I get somewhere.

about

Ben Hughes New Jersey

"...channels musicians like Elliott Smith, Bright Eyes, and Sufjan Stevens, as on Hughes’ previous releases. But this record immediately calls to mind Pedro the Lion’s Control, with its deep-voiced chords and melodies, lyrical themes of corporate hell, and Hughes’ slurring voice. It could stand as a complimentary album to Control just as well as it stands on its own."
