Burdensome Thoughts

from All in This Together by Conor Ryan Hennessy



Last night, last year in some month I forgot
I was coming back home from a job I bought
Its the best one I've had, in an office real clean
I thought to myself, what a terrible dream

With my burdensome thoughts
My burdensome thoughts
My unkindly, live-wire
Burdensome thoughts

So I greased up my hands, and I rolled up a smoke
And I went down the block where the sidewalks broke
When up comes a bar, with a doorman to boot
The barman said kid, we been looking for you

So I walked in the bar, 'cause it seemed mighty nice
beneath one the bar stools, 'saw a few mice
And I knew I was there, where I needed to be
To vanquish the demons on upholstered seats

Well I drank a few minutes, then half hour days
The blues and the Chartreuse got mixed up with greys
Till I saw a strange thing out the corner (of) my eye
My landlord and boss were exchanging high fives

Since brothers and sisters have first learned to fight
The machines in our heads keep whirling all night
If you're feeling real bad, I'd like you to know
When it comes to bad thinking, you're never alone
