This song is about lacking the motivation or focus to take care of even the simplest things. My life is mixture of touring and school, they complicate each other!


Chorus: Is there anybody out there? Is there anybody there?
Is there anybody listening to me? Does anybody care?

Now I'm sitting on the corner of Borthwick and Failing Street
Singing in a room all alone, but not alone in this world


Well I fought through this depression and I am on the other side
feeling just a little stir-crazy like I wanna go outside
but first I need to clean my bedroom like when I was in third grade
funny how now that I am grown up, my bed is still not made


now my baby's on the telephone talking to her momma in PA
sometimes I wish I was there now, yes I'd like to run away
but I need to take the trash out from the middle of the floor
cause when the trash is taken out it won't smell no more


sometimes it's all the small things that I forget to do
it’s easy to dream of many things when there’s homework left to do



from Until My Ankle's Better, released August 13, 2010
