about

This song is about the formation of The UGLYS.

lyrics

Downtown I’ll be pouring the week away
Guzzle through your boredom everyone’s out of place
Hustle off potential splitting elbows spend to make
Work ain’t always legal, but the risk is fat and free to blaze
Stumble through the city pay to play deplete my funds
These strings have gotten rusted waiting for the next pickup
All my friends are junkies and I lead the whole charade
My hands are broke my fingers stiff in the middle of this drunk parade

Red lights in the rear view “Roll down the window please”
“How many ounces, are underneath our seats”?
“Gotta get your hands dirty, to make ends meet”
“Just a matter of time before a DUI, unless I leave”

I need to get out of here, or its worms meat for me this place
will break you down, and it'll drown you out until you can't breath

The bank is dry bloodshot red eyes no checks in the mail
Sweating like a pig trying to stay out of jail
A choice was we made moved away won't settle for a slow decay
Open the eyes of the blind

Dilated pupils squinting through a swollen brow
Hit reset on my ambitions when my voice becomes to loud
Alcoholics through the ages generations trace the lines
Can’t complete a mission when demons keep you up all night
Fuck away your dignity one could never be enough
There’s no sense of decency when your to self absorbed to love
In your fathers shadow how the mighty have fallen
Bluffing with an empty hand the bets are all in

Run the rat race break bones to squeeze in
Grinding our teeth and checking off lists
Another closed door another clenched fist
The wills of the frail are crooked and bent
Thrown off course with the slightest offense
On and on the cycle never ends

Setbacks wont be limiting we pass the weak and feral
I’m appalled by their ignorance at the bottom of the barrel
Blistered hands cracking feet this trek long forlorn
Crawling on forearms and knees toe the line of the world that I scorn

Waiting waiting at the precipice we stand
Witness witness the swarm overflow
Disgrace disdain their tastes so bland
Dismiss bullshit with standards so low
