About This Track
--------------------

Around the time this track was written (in say...2006?) lots of bad shit went down...like losing my band, business, girlfriend, etc all in the course of a month or two, and I pretty much went bonky. Then everything I owned that proved I existed (pictures, diplomas, yearbooks - basically every keepsake I ever had) was stolen by drug addicts out of a Public Storage unit I rented, and none of it was ever recovered.

So this tune kinda mourned the breakup, and I titled it Public Storage because I was bitter about the robbery incident at the time, and because "public storage" seemed like a fine analogy for what I thought a relationship was: a cold, dark, insecure container - the contents of which could be pilfered at any time! Haha! Now that I've cheered you up, go listen to the song!

lyrics

Public Storage
-----------------

Save what I gave her under glass full of favor
In a world where we're braver and we give what we get
I'm out of gumption down the drain up the junction
Girl our love start to function like a pretty toilet

I'm right you're wrong
Goodnight to our sweet song
You're right I'm wrong
This spite for what we've done...GO!

You can live in a bubble you can rip through the rubble
Seems a whirlwind of trouble comes whichever you choose
Sweet Southern Comfort dig you down into the dirt
In a hurricane of hurt and no love left to lose

I'm right you're wrong
Goodnight to our sweet song
You're right I'm wrong
This spite for what we've done

None ever swayed a heart so broken
Not from Seattle to Hoboken
None ever caved a will so strong

Save what I gave her under glass full of favor
In a world where we're braverrrrrrr.....
...oh my god!!!

I'm right you're wrong
Goodnight to our sweet song
You're right I'm wrong
This spite for what we've...
