about

Done for an Indy movie called Meth Head. A couple dealing with one person's meth addiction. Initially I thought I'd play the addict but Carina did it so much better than I ever could. I'm the voice of reason (there's a first).

lyrics

Fastball alive is the limit once bitten twice high
Shaking the coil
I’m climbing the battlements scaling the walls
To escape with the jewels as I bow to the fools.
Is anybody listening?
Treat me up beat me up
Lay me down and eat me up
Leave me alive
I’m craving I’m raving from drywall to drywall
I’m running out of fire
Is anybody listening?
Hush now baby baby
You’ve got to hold it together
You don’t want to wake everybody
You don’t want to scare anyone
Hush now baby baby
You’ve got to hold it together
You don’t want a raise a fuss
You don’t want to make a mess of everything
Hold it together
I’m sold but this cold is a hard one to shake me
Awake am I dreaming of genies and snakes
Pull the covers up hide me lie to me and hold me and hold me and hold me...
Hush now baby baby
You’ve got to hold it together
You don’t want to wake everybody
You don’t want to scare anyone
Hush now baby baby
You’ve got to hold it together
You don’t want a raise a fuss
You don’t want to make a mess of everything
Hold it together, Hold it together
When the weight of the world
Is too much to bear
You’re not alone
I’ll be there
We can hold it together
