Song: Parting

(Track 10/10 Nothing) This is an homage to John Prine. It is a very personal piece about surviving a rather long bout of unemployment.

parting is such sweet sorrow my dignity
searchin the car seat for money so i can eat
when did it all start, how is it all gonna end?
all of the love in the world is starting to bend
i guess i’ll go look for my smile
while those jackasses toast the new world
and the lovers and the prophets and the truth
go outta style

parting is such sweet sorrow simplicity
sorting through the piles of bullshit they keep throwin at me
when did it all start, how is it all gonna end?
all of the love in the world is starting to bend
i guess i’ll go look for my smile
while those jackasses toast the new world
and the losers pack it in to go join
the rank and file

parting is such sweet sorrow humanity
when i read the news and i watch it goin down on t.v.
when did it all start, how is it all gonna end?
all of the love in the world is starting to bend
i guess i’ll go look for my smile
while those jackasses toast the new world
and the airplanes and the missiles
feed a few angry mouths

home is where the heart is, etc.
ceterus parabus
nothing is nowhere forever

i guess i’ll go look for my smile
while those jackasses toast the new world
and the lovers and the prophets and the truth
go outta style

i guess i’ll go look for my smile
the losers pack it in to go join
the rank and file
and the airplanes and the missiles and the bombs
feed a few angry mouths
