about

Track 2 from "Rut": The first song written and recorded for the album. Taken at face value, “this is all you get” means exactly what it says.

lyrics

It’s just a matter of time
Before I tap the well dry
I have spent. I won’t even try
Try not to set it up high
That way I can’t disappoint
You can mock. Doesn’t bother me
I know you wanted more, but what you want you might regret.
This is it. This is all you get
There’s only so much that I’m willing to bet I’ve got in me
So for now, this is all that you get
These things take some time
For which I have none
Just a muse. I’m in need of one.
I knew it wouldn’t last
Didn’t know it would happen so fast
You ask, “now what?” Do you really need to ask?
I know you wanted more, but what you want you might regret.
This is it. This is all you get
There’s only so much that I’m willing to bet I’ve got in me
So for now, this is all that you get
