Description
Upbeat sort of sounding folky song with guitar and banjo and accordion with not so upbeat lyrics.

Essentially I'm an asshole with an accordion.

Lyrics
Well I don't where this is going
And I don't know the way
And it seems my leg has broken down
I don't think I can stay
Just because this song sounds happy
Does not mean I feel that way
Might as well just go off myself
You won't miss anyway
You're all to busy wallowing
in your ignorance to sway
So I'll borrow $300
And buy a ticket for Beirut
And After 5000 miles
Your stench will begin to dilute

i like this man. it's quirky. camper van beethoven-ish. like the dead milkmen doing a 60's brit-folk tune. this could be a wedding classic in 30 years.
