Lyrics

Hello? Hey, how are you? Me? I’m doing all right I guess.
Man, it sure is nice after all these years for you to call me up like this
Yeah, I been going through some changes—you know—
But somehow it all feels the same
Sometimes it gets so heavy, at other times it’s like a game
I been better and I been worse
Sometimes a promise feels like a curse
Sometimes my tomorrows look like just a bunch of yesterdays
Sometimes I get to wondering why
I been giving my life away
Lately I been thinking about that fire we used to feel
And them hounds of mediocrity are nipping at my heels
I got a bigger house when I got a brand-new job
Then I got me a big promotion, I just keep climbing to the top
I got rid of my old beater, I traded in for a new car
But it’s been so goddamn long since I picked up my guitar
I keep thinking back to when we didn’t have to make these deals
and them hounds of mediocrity are nipping at my heels
Lately I been thinking about that fire we used to feel
And them hounds of mediocrity are nipping at my heels
Nipping at my heels
