"Blue Footballs" was written when I was young & at home. I was experimenting with everything in those days. I wasn't ever afraid of trying things & that got me in a lot of trouble. this tune expresses how I would find escape in pharmaceuticals knowing it wasn't the answer & didn't really fix anything.

Lyrics

"Blue Footballs"
It's a headache, back pain, medical condition.
Gots to run to the M.D. gonna fill my prescription.
I don't feel a thing with these pharmaceuticals on my brain.
Hell it's all she wrote when on that legal dope & it's all___I can do to stay awake.

It's a late night, mamma's valium & daddy's muscle relaxers.
Wanna numb myself stupefied that's what I'm after.
It don't mean a thing if it's Dr. recommended. Carpet ride all day long hell they ought a be commended, & it's all___I can do to stay awake.
It's all I can do____.

(CHORUS)
I haven't felt this way in a little while.
It's been so long since I could stand up on my own, let go of this dial tone, it's needed.
It's not that complicated_____.
I finally ditched this worn out fear of dying,
& I found it so hard to hold on to what I believe in, it's harder than I ever thought It'd be. But it doesn't seem to be that complicated.

My candle burns slow & without a sound.
Kinda like my addiction to these things that bring me down.
Here it comes now I feel those heavy eyes.
Just around the corner from being temporarily paralyzed.
It's no mistake, hell I can't wait.

I'd like to stay this way for a little bit.
Cause when I'm fed up these pills help me let go of it & now,
No matter how high I get my problems don't go away.
Dreaming of committing myself so I have these pills everyday, always_____.

(CHORUS)
I haven't felt this way in a little while.
It's been so long since I could stand up on my own, let go of this dial tone, it's needed.
It's not that complicated_____.
I finally ditched this worn out fear of dying,
& I found it so hard to hold on to what I believe in, it's harder than I ever thought I'd be. But it doesn't seem to be that complicated.
