Satisfied

lyrics

i wrestle with my demons
let my super soul flex fly
1 - 2 - 3 i hear that bell ring
but i just can't be satisfied

there's an empty something churning
where the twinkle used to perch in my eye
like a coal in the fire burning
i just can't be satisfied

i've known the pleasures of women
in body, soul and mind
i've sent back all the good gifts i was given
lord i just can't be satisfied

i'm hitting that good ol' lonesome highway
gonna get up in them blurry lines
reside in perpetual motion
i just can't be satisfied

to complain i really have no reason
yeah, i 'spose i'm doing alright
i got some time to indulge in boredom
and paint it in an artistic light

still it's real this nothing that i'm feeling
this banal torture won't subside
like some kinda horrible humming
i just can't be satisfied

i wrestle with my demons
let my super soul flex fly
1 - 2 - 3 i hear that bell ring
but i just can't be satisfied

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here: eepurl.com/bcruFT

I post a song once a week on Tuesdays. If I've just finished a song I'll record a rough demo and put it up. Sometimes its live recordings or weird electro collages. I also make a video most weeks using public domain footage. Check it out!

Thanks for taking the time to check out my music!

Jon
