about

A loop-based track born from live performance experimentation.

lyrics

Every man and his dog got a story to tell
how he can’t hold a leash on the red of himself
shouldn’t stop for a lick on the stumble to hell
but I went ahead and did it anyway

Now there’s god, politics, and a vegetative state
and there’s some who can fail while they’re making it great
for the rest it’s a guess what we’re loving to hate
so I went ahead and did it anyway

I went ahead and did it
went ahead and did it
went ahead and did it anyway

Had a chance to advance on the salary train
but his will fell apart when it started to rain
when it’s cold, wet, and dark made it warm in his brain
so he went ahead and did it anyway

Stayin’ low as he go ‘cos he hit with the fuzz
now he’s stuck with the soap and the dishes because
and he can’t catch a job ‘cos he misses the buzz
so he went ahead and did it anyway

I went ahead and did it
went ahead and did it
went ahead and did it anyway

Another night, another Joe put her out on the street
with her shoes in her hands and her heart at her feet
and I’m cold like a pop so I shouldn’t compete
but I went ahead and did it anyway

And it’s not that it’s right or it’s ever been kind
and it tears at your heart when it stop on a dime
and to get out the pit, it’s a volatile climb
but I went ahead and did it anyway

I went ahead and did it
went ahead and did it
went ahead and did it anyway

And the thought in a phrase to summarily close
is unless what you want’s at the end of your nose
gonna wait ‘till it’s late and the progeny doze
and you’ll go ahead an do it anyway

I went ahead and did it
went ahead and did it
went ahead and did it anyway

The glove it didn’t fit it
defendant was acquitted
I went ahead and did it anyway
He was never gonna get it
no, never gonna get it
I went ahead and did it anyway

No, you’re never gonna get it…
