  1. Livin' the dream

From the recording Edge of Oblivion

Story behind the song:
This song was inspired by the pathetic life Al Bundy from the sitcom "Married with children" in combination with how I was feeling about my day job at the time I wrote it.  Most of the song is a dark introspection from the perspective of a jaded and apathetic person like Al Bundy and ends with him having a little gratitude for what he does have.  In the end, he realizes that maybe, all along, he's been "livin' the dream" and was just too jaded to see it.

Lyrics

How long I have walked in these
worn out shoes upon my feet
the road I chose the end of me
words in my head fell on deaf ears
that river kills and has for years
the undertow the least my fears
hey I’m alright
one more day of suicide
the drink’s on me a toast to apathy
livin’ the dream
we jaded hearts find our black holes
bought the rope that hung my soul
reason why bet heaven knows
how long I’ve been wasting here
frownin’ in an ice cold beer
the mornin’ comes the worst my fears
yeah I got everything
everything but happiness
ex-wife kept the diamond ring
do I love her well hell I guess
I got a job it’s a job
it’s a piece of shit
I know I’ve got a lot
I should get over it
could it be I’ve got it better than it seems
could it be I’m really livin’ the dream
