lyrics

Gimme the greenbacks and I’ll write the world
The rest can save themselves
We’re out of lifeboats don’t you see
The pen to paper is an old battle cry
the rest can lift their swords
Gimme the tools and I’ll unhinge myself to fly
but I fall

I fall patiently reaching for the
promises of greatness but tell me
does that make me a fool
for sitting quietly after I’ve been burned

Chorus:
The lights go down upon another day
of walking in my sleep
spinin’ my wheels at the plate
the lights go down and as I’m waiting here
I pray my mind to keep
Only got so many years to stay
help me on my way

Gimme the green light and I’ll wreck the world
I see no better end
I’d rather light the fuse myself
how do the lazy take up arms so fast
your head would spin around
beggin the wrong ones all to stay under their shoes
they have it all

I fall patiently, wondering if
I could do it better, would I see the light
or would I still be dying
thinking silently of what I had done wrong

Chorus

Who am I trying to make happy here? I think about myself
Is this a task I can complete...

I fall patiently, pondering the
consequence of madness, is it a cause
or an effect of trying,
working faithfully, to be exactly who you are
Chorus x2

about

Look Left Phoenix, Arizona

Look Left was formed in 2008 when Jared Clark (Vocals/Acoustic Guitar) decided he wanted to be a rock musician. He went out into the harrowing Northwestern Pennsylvania tundra, bought a microphone and started recording. He was joined by Derek Wilber (Bass), Andrew Cotts (Guitar/Backing Vocals), and Matt Royek (Cajon/Percussion/Oddjobs).

LATER after graduating the college, Jared continues alone.
