this is a comeback, a happy note to start the record. note the super soft, paper-thin 1970's-ish drums (played by Joe Reyes).



turns out it was all in my head
no wonder i never heard a single word you said
it’s as if somebody flicked on all the lights
and yelled “surprise!”
it’s good to be alive again
so proud of blood shot eyes
just flounder and watch the truth
turn into lies
bottle up the acid bid goodnight
and calcify
it’s good to be alive again
a glimpse or a glance
i’m read like a book
i trip as i trudge away from the edge
it’s good to be alive again
surprise! surprise!
