Story

I wrote this in a dark time were I was unable to get any kind of break. All the bands I had been in broke up or just out right failed. But I was still happy to be alive and playing music, no matter how hard times get.

Lyrics

I’d Rather Feel Bad By David Pippin I’d rather feel bad than nothing at all Something to feel alive something I can call Living my life as stable as a flood Not swimming with the flow, stuck in the mud Hitting these strings, trying to pay the bills Broken knuckles, a temper and no backup skills I get easy advice all the time They say I should move a little on farther down the line Chorus: I’d rather feel bad than nothing at all Something to feel alive something I can call Living my life as stable as a flood Not swimming with the flow, stuck in the mud It’s hard to save a penny when you don’t drink cheap Thinking my life is some great feat I’ll spend my last days looking for a home Just some place where I can rest my bones Chorus No regrets, no not a tear It’s just that the short straw looked a lot bigger from here Don’t stop me now I’m on a roll This time next year I’ll be deep in a hole Chorus
