  • Lyrics: Well, I’m tired of being tired of being here.Tired of doing all the things I should’ve done last year.When I wake up in the morning it all seems so damn clear that I’m tired of being tired of being here And I’m tired of the day to day routine.Tired of always looking out but never being seen when you wake up in the morning, well you know what I mean‘cause we’re all tired of being tired of being here.And I’m tired of all the people that I know.Tired of hearing all about how much my hair has grown.When I’m sitting at a party, I’d rather be alone‘cause I’m tired of all the people that I know.(Refrain.)So I’m tired of being tired of being here.Tired of this dead-end job that I should have quit last year.When I ask a friend to lend a hand, he buys another beer.I guess he’s tired of being tired of being here.And I’m tired of the whole dating scene.Tired of all the trouble that women seem to bring when you’re flung into something that you thought was just a fling you get tired of the whole dating scene.And I’m tired of thinking that you’re really gone.Tired of never throwing up my hands and moving on.When I think that I forgot you, you end up in a song.I’m tired of thinking that you’re really gone.(Refrain.) Well I’m tired of being tired of being here,how could you be so far away when you just so near.When I was gone, you were alone, I should have told you on the phone,that I missed you then and I still do now, my dear

Their sound is down home, unapologetic and raw.

The members of the band evolve over time with the only consistent member being songwriter/vocalist/guitarist Sean Conrey. Other members ...
