about

This is song about my stubborn insistence to stay in the woods at the expense of any career I may have had in music.

lyrics

Better off alone

Well I guess it all goes back to what I've been saying all along
No matter what I try I keep on getting it all wrong
but as long as I stay pessimistic I'll always be pleasantly surprised
I came home from the city back in 1996
left my pursuit of fame and fortune for a life out in the sticks
And ever since I've wondered if I was mistaken and I should've stayed to fight

Silver, patchwork moonlight on the newly fallen snow
The woods are dark and quiet and the air is sharp and cold
Out here I face my disenchantment with the world that I have known
wondering if after all I'm better off alone

You see I've got a mild case of sociopathic disease
Not that I dislike other people or that people dislike me
But I try to keep my distance and my business sealed from any prying eyes
And it's this general mistrust of the entire human race
that make me questionable company and always out of place
But if there's anything I've learned it's that you'd best do it yourself to get it right

Someday I may lapse back into insanity
and rejoin the rat-race and urban calamity...

...But probably not

Silver, patchwork moonlight on the newly fallen snow
The woods are dark and quiet and the air is sharp and cold
Out here I face my disenchantment with the world that I have known
wondering if after all I'm better off alone
