Recorded Feb 10-12 2017 by Greg Norman at Electrical Audio in Chicago, IL. Mixed by Greg Norman and Only The Bones. Mastered by Collin Jordan at the Boiler Room.


I’ve wasted a good life
done some shitty things
Never made much, never measured up.
Pissed away every second chance I got

Never laid down roots,
Was a shitty man
Disappointed my Dad, let my friends down
Before my mom left, she killed my dog.

Don’t take it away // I’m not finished yet
Am I too late // Give me one last chance

This is my promise.
It’s fragile and thin
A seed in shitty soil, but it wants to live.
I’m done gnashing my teeth, indulging regrets
I welcome them all. I welcome them all.

Don’t take it away // I’m not finished yet
Am I too late // To be a better man?

This is mine // For better or worse
This one is mine // and it’s good enough

Say yes to the demon.
Say yes to it all
I wanna be a

To infinity
