Well I know I was lucky to have survived
to have made it through the crash still alive
for hope was abandoned when i was left
floating, floating, floating, floating floating
in the pod outside

and so i pray
"lord I'll be a better man
oh I will change, oh I will change
lord I'll be a better man
oh I will change, oh I will change
I will change"

Well I'll give up the drinking and I'll give up the drugs
I'll stop paying for sex in the clubs
and I'll get me a good girl and I'll settle down
I'll quit my lying, my cheating
my stealing, my hacking
my beating, my scraping
my boiling, my shooting
my scoring, my dealing
floating, floating, floating, floating, floating
just don't let me die

and so i pray
"lord I'll be a better man
I will change, yea I will change
lord I'm not scared to go"
well I think I see, well I think I see
a soft radiant light

    General CommentThis song is actually the last song on "The West is The Future" and it is less about heroin and more about the movie, 2001 A Space Odyssey. The song was originally titled: 2001: An Alternate Ending. The song describes what might have happened to the astronaut had hal prohibited his reentry into the ship. It is narrated from the astronaut's perspective.

    General CommentThe album cover for Kid Dakota's first album shows a picture of the lead singer, Darren Jackson, all bloodied up and in a sling. This is how that picture came about, and also why he quit heroin. This song is the happy (or not so happy) ending to the So Pretty album.

    Anyway, Kid Dakota has been a favorite of mine for a long time and the recent release of their latest album has motivated me to post up most of the lyrics from it (and others). I'll see about getting to the transcribing the rest of their songs.
