about

"Seek me and find me, you will find me when you seek me with all your heart" (Jeremiah 29:13)

lyrics

47 years upon this earth
never strayed far from the land of my birth
drive all day in a truck made of rust
dust i am, i shall return to dust

47 years upon this earth
the work of my hands won't pay me what i'm worth
creaky old furniture, drafty old house
friend to the groundhog, deer, and mouse

where oh where oh where did it all go wrong
why oh why oh why can't i find it
where of where where oh where did it all go wrong
why oh why oh why can't i find
some innocence?

a man of the world for 47 years
the sound of children fills my ears
hungry mouths and nothing will suffice
i'd be damned but for the love of my wife

can't sleep at night this town's too toxic
dreaming every night about public office
but there's a price to be paid that you cannot afford
and respect of men is empty and absurd

so another log to the fire in the middle of the night
an ache in my head that doesn't feel right
maybe it comes from breathing too much smoke
but the darkness at the door, it aint no joke

where oh where oh where did it all go wrong
why oh why oh why can't i find it
where of where where oh where did it all go wrong
why oh why oh why can't i find
some innocence?
