lyrics

home, where she wanted to be
with all her clothing at her feet
completely naked and free.

home, with a couple books to read
she's like the devil, but she's sweet
when she is naked and free.

out on her own, the world is big
so now her problems seem so small.
a speck on a page,
a second in a day.

home, where she's longing to be
same old habits for the new week
life like a goddamn zombie.

now we know we're all ashamed
at the way we're too distracted
to live in the current day.

out on her own, the world is big
so now her problems seem so small.
she's just a speck on a page,
she's just a second in a day
trying to live in the current day.

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."
