A take on hangover-induced existential thoughts. This carefully trimmed epic grew out of The Dirty Blue beginnings and, in equal parts, it was influenced by the majestic rock of Pink Floyd, Queen and The Who. What started out as a down-tempo free-form guitar jam eventually shaped itself into a reflective song about sobering up to the feeling of being stuck. As with everything else on this album, all arrangements and orchestrations were scored and performed by The Dirty Blue (with a guest appearance by Andrea on cello).


wake up..

and wet cigarettes,
what you don't

calm and
to give it all up..

do you know when to stop
believing what you see,
explaining how you feel,
alone today..
oh, you'll never get away..
