On This Road

from by David Thompson



I think I speak for everyone
Who stands
Up just to take it like a man
And all my friends say I can't admit I'm wrong
But hey
I never liked them anyway

And I don't know what I'm fighting for
But Lord, I've had enough
Sometimes I like running into walls
When I feel like being tough
We forget to live and we live to forget
It's messing with my head
But I will not

There are six ribbons in a row
I've untied
And now my roses have all died
It makes my bed sink awful low
And what's more
I think my neck is getting sore

It's been a long time I've been on this road
And Lord, it's getting rough
Sometimes I just keep moving along
When I know enough is enough

Waste my time trying to rewind
Back to where my story began
To pretend
Everything's alright again
Sure, no one will recognize me now
But I won't be seeing them around
On all the twists and bends

When I forget about everything I want
To survive
It gets me high

Hello there! I'm David and I write music. I'm currently in a new band called Something Dear and we'll hopefully be doing some really cool things very soon.

Over the last three years I have been held hostage by my first solo album project. The good news is that I'm really finished with it this time*, and I'll be working hard on new things from here on.

Take care!
