lyrics

There’s a three for three deal at the party store
After tax and deposit it’s four
It’s enough to get gone if you want to go
But I’m trying not to anymore

There’s a bar down the street you can smoke inside
Whenever the regulars came
I used to be one but I stayed away
Now there’s no one there who knows my name

So I sulk to myself ‘cuz it seems a loss
And drift back to my own abode
There’s a fresh patch of asphalt here, looks brand new
I had no idea they fixed this road

It’s incremental
It takes time
I’ve had to borrow
Some of mine
But I’ll face each day just a bit less disgusted
And soon I’ll be well, adjusted

There’s a house on my block where the lights are out
Security signs on the door
And they boarded it up but it’s just one house
It could be worse, it could be more

So I tell myself things can’t be all that bad
I kept a roof over my head
I held down this job for a couple years
And by all accounts I’m still not dead

It’s incremental
It takes time
I’ve had to borrow
Some of mine
But I’ll face each day just a bit less disgusted
And soon I’ll be well, adjusted

There's a three for three deal at the party store
A three for three deal at the party store
A three for three deal at the party store
A three for three deal, a three for three deal

There’s a black cat who sleeps by my side most nights
Head resting between his paws
He don’t seem aware of his perceived luck
And he doesn’t seem to mind my flaws

I glance at my phone as I’m dozing off
And see a new message arrive
I read her name as I close my eyes
And I dream of futures I’ll survive

It’s incremental
It takes time
Please, help yourself to
Some of mine
When she says she loves me my heart says to trust it
She tells me I’m well, adjusted

There’s a three for three deal at the party store
After tax and deposit it’s four
At least that’s what it was the last time I went
I don’t go too often anymore
