teetercamo Stroke 9 is back! The only thing that would be better than their return with this song would be an album.

lyrics

I’ve been sitting down here
at the bottom of this lake
more than a year
making the same mistakes

I wish I would have known
how I was wrong
what I could do
to fix it all

I was taking a stand
I was lending a hand
I was trying to do
what I could understand

There was always a fear
I couldn’t see
that it was just not right for me

But I thought I’m a man
so I carved out a plan
then I thought I could breathe
way down here in the deep

It’s been more than a year
and I’m clearly not right
I’m just trying to save some face now

Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey

Someone to think with
Someone to drink with
Someone who leaves me alone
Someone to lie with
Someone to get high with
Someone who makes it home

We’re gonna run downtown at a quarter after eight
Grab a beer, take a break
And have someone to cry with
Run downtown, I’ll be there, don’t be late
Grab a beer, take a break
And have someone to die with

I’ve been waiting for this
Down here in the basement
Counting the days for way too long

I wish I would have known
How I could change
What I could do
Who I could be

I was making my way
A little bit every day
I was trying to go
Places I didn’t know

There was always a chance
I couldn’t dance
Really fast or really slow

But I thought I’m smart
So I figured I’d start
Digging around upstairs and get out of the dark

It’s been more than a year
and I’m clearly not right
I’m just trying to save some face now
