about

Track 6 from "Rut": A song that explains my inner struggle of how to best utilize my free time; Video games or song writing. It’s an ongoing battle for which they both suffer.

lyrics

Why am I writing songs when I could be playing video games
Why should I learn my scales when I could be playing video games
Learning jazz chords would be cool, but so is playing video games
Making a living at what I like playing so why am I playing video games.
Obligations got the best of me. I’m burdened with priorities
I got to set my focus straight, focus straight, focus straight, focus straight
Damn, it’s too late
I don’t believe in ADD but something sure is pulling me
Away from creativity and closer to my Fallout 3
