This song is the fourth track off of this EP.


I don't know where to go from here, but
It would be better with a bottle of beer.
To calm the nerves, to soothe the soul a bit,
To work out these imperfections in our bullshit.

I know we’ve got a lot on our plate.
We filled it up ‘cause it felt great.
What we shared was so damn fine.
Can't believe we were so blind.

The deafness in our eyes, the mute of our ears.
The blindness in our mouth, yeah we turned south.
We turned south.
When we heard our sighs, when then saw our fears.
We thought we headed north but we turned south.
We turned south.

Another swig of the cold fresh hop,
Another sing-a-long, another du-wop.
We killed all chances of a future for two.
You screwed me over, now look at you, I mean look at me, I'm a wreck, I’m a mess.
I'm in shambles cause of you, yeah I must confess.
The brew slides down one after one ridding the memories one by one.

You screwed me over.
We goofed it up.
A chance for self-discovery,
No chance for recovery.

And you cannot see what you have done.
