This was recorded live during a Central College Vocal/Jazz Combo concert during my last semester at Central College in 2005. I believe I threw the chart at the rhythm section at our last rehearsal, thus a couple of wonked chords, but I'm still happy I still have a version of this done at a weird, questionable, and challenging part of my life. I also performed this song at my senior recital. I played electric keys on this and was accompanied by some of the most talented musicians I will get to play with. My jazz mentor, Gabriel Espinosa, plays bass. Wonderfully enough, my childhood family friend Jill Osheim (now Jones) played acoustic piano. I can't remember our drummers name, but I remember wanting to play music with him badly until I asked him what his favorite song ever was and it was "Headstrong" by Trapt. Nonetheless, the song is a reflection of my college years, how I should have applied myself more, the monotony of changing life events, and things to come. Another fun fact about this song (if anyone is familiar with my first Thermal Detonators EP), I took the ending melody to this song and it serves as the outro to "Everything About Me."


Don't worry about that.
We're never coming back.
Don't want to end up poor.
I'll be OK.
I feel no hate.
I'll be no servant anymore.
The lighter shade will shine before the morn.

Don't hurt yourself again.
No need to bother with all these stupid things.
We're never coming back
to all the pain.
I feel no hate.
I'll be no servant anymore.
The lighter shade has shown before
the morn and turned away
from all the pain of open wounds.

I'll be OK.
I feel no hate.
I'll be no servant anymore.
The lighter shade has shown
that everything is going well.
The changes we have made
are getting better everyday.
In other ways,
I feel old.
Feeling Old.
