lyrics

they say his songs require and acquired taste
could it be just a mean thing to say in a sort of nice way?
correct semantically.

I know I might be going off
but sometimes I really wonder
if I've ever written anything in my life
that was good at all.

but then I think about how either way it kept me from going under.

it saved me from me
because sometimes, a jump start is all I need.
it saved me from me,
and didn't cause anxiety.

I know I might be going off
but sometimes I still wonder
if I've ever written anything in my life
that was good at all.

but then I think about how either way it kept me from going under.

it saved me from me
because sometimes, a jump start is all I need.
it saved me from me,
and didn't cause anxiety.

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."

-Nick Tate, WXPN
