"Penthouse in the Woods" as written by and Joseph Pernice....
I didn't sleep last night
I didn't sleep the night before
I'm pretty wound tight
I couldn't empty out my head
All the serious questions
Seem to eat my time away

We were a marked type
We found a penthouse in the woods
The garbage bag airtight
I only wish I could forget

The glossy imperfection
Seemed to take my grip away
Why'd you still watch yourself
Why'd you still watch yourself

Found my glove that I can't the remove the stains
We took a look there was no one around
But it never took long
We found a penthouse in the woods
Tell me that I am wrong
Tell me that I should just forget

All the serious questions
Seem to eat my time away
Why'd you still watch yourself
Why'd you still watch yourself
The glossy imperfection
Just seemd to take my grip away
Why'd you still watch yourself
Why'd you still watch yourself

    General CommentHard to tell for sure, but here are a few suggested corrections with the changed or added words listed in CAPITAL LETTERS:

    1st stanza: "I couldn't empty out my head OF the serious questions"

    2nd stanza: "NOW I only wish I could FORGIVE"

    3rd stanza: "Why'd you STEAL WHAT YOU SAW? Why'd you STEAL WHAT YOU SAW?" (Only 90% sure about this line, but it's definitely not "yourself")

    4th stanza: while the first part about the glove might be correct, I don't hear "remove" -- instead, it sounds like a long "E" sound, not the "oo" sound in "move". The stain part might be right, or it might be "disdain", but this remains the most undecipherable line and will probably require Joe himself to iron out,

    Final stanza: "seemed to eat my LIFE away"


    Definitely in the Top 5 of SMB tunes. Thanks for sharing.
