"Tickets To What You Need" as written by and Damon Michael Gough....
I'm turning the lights down low
Ready to make my move
Get you tickets to what you need

I'm treading the borderlines
And ruining peoples' lives
By giving them what they need

You're quite right to ask me what's wrong with me
You want to take a look in my head
Here I've been thinking, "what's wrong with me"?
I'll watch the news instead

I'm turning Madonna down
Calling it my best move
I'll get her tickets to what she needs

I'm hugging my eiderdown
Employing a microscope
To find you the things you need

Now I'm ready to tell you what's wrong with me
I'm feeling the emptiness rise
And I'd trade the whole thing quite gladly
For something of similar size

I'm turning the lights down low
Ready to make my move
Get you tickets to what you need

What's wrong with me? x4

    General CommentThis song is great. It's about a guy who does everything for everyone else, but at the same time, he's going slowly insane.

    General CommentHas no one heard the live version on Conan from a while ago? It's alot different then the original and contains my favorite lines in music history:
    And I remember doing nothing on the night Sinatra died
    and the night Jeff Buckley died
    and the night kurt Cobain died
    and the night John Lennon died
    I remember I stayed up to watch the news with everyone
    and that was alot of nights
    and that was alot of lives
    who lost the tickets to what they need
    I was busy finding answers whil you just got on with real life
    always hoped you'd be my wife
    but i never found the time for the question to arise
    I just disguised it in a song
    And songs, are never quite the answer just a soundtrack to a life that is over all too soon
    Helps to turn the days to nights while I was wrong and you were right
