lyrics

I’ve felt grounded since a couple of months,
/ Grounded like I never was, / Grounded as
I never thought, / But a couple years have
gone in smoke like a blunt

Lots of them were a waste, were a tie / But
as soon as I’ve dared to choke / I’ve been
going straight as an arrow flight. / With roots
like a blackjack oak

Who knows what I’d do / If I could get me
some land

I still wish I could learn to share, / I still wish
I could learn to write / But I’ve been learning
the pick n’ shovel / Since now my blood runs
with the heat of the light

The shortest straw was not in my hand / I’m
not begging any mercy, hey! / Tell you the
truth I feel like a cat / Working for the CIA

I don’t know when I don’t know why, / I’m not
even sure I’m gonna die / Being grounded I
can handle wild / While keepin’ it steady with
my wife
