I wrote this song when I was about 20… to be honest most of my songs at that time were about the desire to “make it” and not end up treading water for my whole life… This song shares the same sentiment as “trustworthy rock”
The lyric “I’m beginning to think that I could live my life this way” is the flip side… it’s about relishing in being busy, relishing in chaos and loving the lack of organization..
I thought of a Rasta’s ashtray as being full most of the time… just constantly overflowing…
This tune was recorded in the first load of sessions, then done again in the second… we forgot about it and it kind of popped up at the last minute as an obvious first track for the album… it has a brilliant energy and I love the swing feel… it was written as a jazz song originally and kind of morphed into something heavier and more “us”…
I suppose it is an adolescent song… “you don’t know me, I wont change”
That’s how I felt back then… you know… don’t tell me what the fuck to do I am growing.
Tune in again to BalconyTV //
