About "Settle Down Good"
The story of getting my life back together after drinking myself into oblivion for too long.

Lyrics
settle down
settle Down
I'll put you in my heart
point a way to Arkansans
throw me like a dart

wash me up in lithium
God knows I need a friend
In a hot spring new dream
we’ll start another band
play it boys

oh Remember when
remember when
I was just a kid
Now I'm sorry that I put through
The life I never lived

about drowned in DFW
when I was swimming with the Sharks
to a hot spring in Arkansas
on that river in the dark

I'm gonna settle down
settle down
and do what I should
there’s a girl that’s gonna love me
cause I did all I could
i chopped down this world around me
for the heart of the wood
now I’m gonna settle down
settle down good

I drank myself to jail and back
now I'm piss'n clean
found God at the bottom of a cigarette pack
at the Monday morning meeting

so float me up to Arkansans
like we used to do
or maybe down to Galveston
oh that wasn’t you

(who was that girl..)

Well you cried yourself to sleep each night
But I wish you understood
though I did the devils work
it was working for the good

I'm gonna settle down
settle down
do what I should
there’s a girl that’s gonna love me
cause I did all i could
I chopped down this world around me
for the heart of the wood
now I’m gonna settle down
settle down good

Well you poured me out like alcohol
‘Cause I just can’t get enough
But there is a bottom of the bottle in every heart
And getting there was tough
I think I was drinking up the dust

I'm gonna settle down
settle down
and do what I should
there’s a girl that’s gonna love me
cause I did all I could
I chopped down this world around me
for the heart of the wood
now I’m gonna settle down
settle down good
