720 sq ft
i tremble when i make the rounds
my guitar has turned to concrete
i swear it weighs one thousand pounds
every day an endless slog
through the digital and analog

i have headphones on
i'm cueing up my back catalog

i used to be at one with the night
and i swear i never minded the morning
now i buckle at every slight
now i implode without warning
every night a ray-gun fog
left sifting through the dialogue

with my headphones on
cueing up my back catalog

the alarm set cuffs wet
patiently awaiting the folds on the last bet
my scalp scraped knees taped
i found my hill it's too late now the claim's staked
teeth flossed the cards embossed
the sips keep getting smaller and the rest is getting tossed

(he used to be that way but now his brain has changed)

720 sq ft
a 15- minute miracle mile
reward regret repeat
rethink review refile
creaky like a rusty cog
waiting like a widowed dog

with my headphones on
cuing up my back catalog

nails trimmed lights dimmed
been gathering the scraps and now they've all been binned
eyes peeled the deal sealed
but any judgements that were made have now all been appealed
me drink nursed de-lips pursed
well sure i'm breathing deeply but it's rehearsed

(he used to be that way but now his brain has changed)
