Cheap Advice [Joe Kretschmer, Feb. '08]

Today I'm not feeling good or bad
Just sittin' around, thinkin' about the life I've had
It's been a long trip, know it's gonna end some day
But I've learned a thing or two along the way
If you've got a minute or two, I'd like to share 'em with you,
Please stay...

Sit yourself down, have a cup on me
Some of this stuff might get a bit heavy
Nothin' in this life comes easily
And there's a price for curiosity
But you keep an open mind, you'll be surprised at the things you'll find
For free...

[bridge]
Life is made of bits and pieces
Scratches and dents, folds and creases
Sometimes the whole damn thing smells like feces
And ya just gotta hold your breath
But ya gotta admit, it beats the hell outta death!

Life shouldn't be a contest or a fight
Things just don't come up black or white
What's clear in the day often blurs at night
But sometimes you get the gift of second sight
You get a line, I'll get a pole, we'll get insight to our souls
The time is right...

So off you go, good luck to y'all
You'll survive, even if you trip and fall
Just remember somewhere down the line
When you reach that certain place and time
Pass on what you've learned today, take the time for fun and play
And you'll be fine...
