Most of this album was recorded in a couple of weeks up at Mitch Easter's fantastic recording facility The Feb 14 - Drive-By Truckers - A Blessing And A Curse in beautiful little Kernersville NC back in August of We finished it, tidied up, cut a couple of extra tracks and mixed it back home in Athens GA at Chase Park Transduction. Most of the album was written around the time it was recorded.
About half the songs were recorded within hours of being written. Thanks to our friend Danny Clinch for inspiring the title of the album. I can't blame you but it's a shame you can't cover your ass sometimes. It's that kind of town and you're so far down you can't get up. I can't tell you what to sell and how to tow the line and when to just give up.
Calling out to everyone who tried to run. You tried to run. Don't be so easy on yourself 'cause this one might be all that you have left.
Rearrange the voices in your head and remember what they said. Don't be so easy on yourself. You got it down, you been around and you won't change your life for redneck cops and traffic stops and residue but I can't tell you all the hell they'll put you through inside and what they'll do to you.
Ten years down the road you'll find you're left behind. You're left behind. She's got me tied in a knot. That's what I thought she'd do. Don't ask me what's on my mind. I'm fine.
I'll push on through. Not much to see on this angry street, so I'll sleep the day away. Look past my barnacled mind and in time I'll roll the stone away. While we still have the daylight, I might look these lessons in the eye. While we still have the daylight, I might become some brand-new kinda guy. Brass knuckles and birds on a wire retire but no one gets free. I'd pay to tear these chains away, this steel sympathy. Cut bait and cold black forty weight, no one can sing for me.
They fall down with grease in their eyes and cry. How could this come to be? When it all comes down There'll be nothing left to catch you but ground It's calling your name and Sleep - Katrine Suwalski - Another World your head Low Mode - Various - Sex, Drums & Rock N Rave delusions of glory Is that how you're gonna write your story?
Down in your time as a high-flying flame out? Sucking on what's left of your trust fund? Sucking on the end of a shot gun? But there's more here than meets the eye The real story is under Feb 14 - Drive-By Truckers - A Blessing And A Curse surface We're all so in love with the artifice We don't dare look too close It's a blessing and a curse Watch out, Eugene, you don't make things worse Wild dreams come true, what to do then?
