Track Name: ill.
I've felt ill all summer
and no one can cure me
no pills please mother
they only obscure me

& my brain is hanging on by a thread
and I feel I'm going insane
I'm hungover and half-dead
and I don't know who is to blame

I've felt ill
everyone's acting so erratic
broken 40 bottles in the attic
tinnitus-ridden ears with constant static
I stood too close to the amps
& now I'm close to the edge

Frozen margaritas by the ledge
and they cost twice my hourly wage
who's gonna pay the bill?

They're telling me to act my age
But how am I supposed to do it when I've felt ill?
