about

Smokey & the Boozer is about polar opposites and the struggle of co-existance. It's about drugs, disillusionment, self defeatism, and trying to see the light. It's about paying attention to what's going on.

lyrics

Say man you ain't talking, ain't got much to say. The day hasn't started but your up anyway. The sugar in the alcohol made your body wake up, when those birds outside, well they wouldn't stop their squawk. And your moving through some tunnel of sound, where you can't see the future and nobodies around. You wonder in that moment if you've been wrong everyday, what if your futures the thing, you've been pushing away

Singing, hail to the fire and the pleasure the pain, and those doped out fantasies corroding your brain. Take another one boy, cause it's all in good fun, and how interesting is life, when you know, what's going on

Your a lover a fighter, the animated one. You got a six pack of struggle tucked under each arm. Shot taker, decision maker, yeah you've seen how it's done and those pacts are all made when the bottles are gone. Come here and sit closer, let me show you a sign, something to read, when your visions not so blind, it says landslides may happen and for certain in time, so be careful what you read, when your taking in those lines

Singing, hail to the fire and the pleasure the pain, and those doped out fantasies corroding your brain. Take another one boy, cause it's all in good fun, and how interesting is life, when you know, what's going on
