Written and recorded in January 2012, Madison, WI.


The moon is covered up with fog
So I can't howl like a dog
If I could find the way I'd say that it was you
The world is covered up with clouds
It makes me want to say out loud
I always thought you already knew

A girl walks by with a laundry basket
A tisket a task kid I always thought you knew

The world is covered up with clouds
It looks like the sun is coming out
I always thought you figured why I'm blue
I want you after all this time
I thought that I would make you mine
Or did I also get that mixed around?

I saw a penny on the street
I looked down and it looked back up at me

It said don't feel down on our luck
It said don't give too big a fuck
Don't think that it's all out of your control
So I put down the cigarette
I turned back from my front porch step
And then I knew I was right where I belong

The world is gone but not for long
It comes back after this whole song
I wish I had the way to not feel bad
The world is covered up with lies
There's truth but you must realize
You gotta look through all the shit
You gotta search a little bit more
