I'm Not Mad

from 13 North & South EP by Pelican Johnny



Seven o’clock in the morning
But I’ve been up since way before
I’ve been awake, yeah man I know
Head straight for the shower
Last refuge before the end of the hour
Into the day I go

And so I’m satisfied
I won’t be obliged
To say
Maybe the reason why
I am pacified today
I’m not mad because
I’m not allowed to be mad

And so, a smile on my face
Anything else would just go to waste
It’s the only way, yeah man I know
Don't bother to try and fight
When you can’t look forward to the things you like
Don’t even try, yeah man I know


from 13 North & South EP, released November 22, 2013
