"Wandering" as written by and Benjamin P Cooper....
Fall asleep in a comfort of nest
The room is yellow and the windows are deadest white
I smell the ghost of your dinner
And the space heat is going like a miniature gate to hell

I hear the dogs as I dress myself
And pin the letter on the back of a paper plate
Tells you that I'm gone now
And I'm sorry if I don't make it back

Well, I know it's a good life
Yeah, I know it's a good life
But I gotta keep moving
I was made to keep moving

And I know it's a long shot
It was always a long shot
But I'm trusting my aim now
Yeah, I'm trusting my aim

And I know it's a good life
Yeah, I know it's a good life
But I gotta keep moving
I gotta stay on my aim

I had a dream but I called it a plan
A string of hopes that I figured would serve me well

Sometimes delusions made a comfort you want them to be

Now I'm broke and my luck's run out
My new acquaintances will never be someone to trust
My house is now a graveyard
And it's hard to fall asleep with no one watching your back

Well, you've got my name
But it's all the same
I don't need much and you can have it all

And it's in my heart
For another star
To help my face but I shoulder it all
Now the price is a big one

But I'm having a good life
Yeah, I'm having a good life
But I had to keep moving
Oh, I was made to keep moving

And I know that I'm messed up
Yeah, I know that I'm messed up
But I still gotta keep moving
Yeah, I still gotta move

    General CommentUhhhh, just some issues....

    I fall asleep in a comforting mess
    The room is yellow and the windows the deadest white
    I smell the ghost of your dinner
    And the space heater is glowing like a miniature gate to hell
    I hear the dogs as I dress myself
    "I pin the letter on the back of a paper plate
    It tells you that I'm gone now"
    And I'm sorry if I don't make it back

    Well, I know it's a good life
    Yeah, I know it's a good life
    But I've gotta keep moving
    I was made to keep moving
    And I know it's a long shot
    It was always a long shot
    But I'm trusting my aim now
    Yeah I'm trusting my aim

    And I know it's a good life
    Yeah, I know it's a good life
    But I've gotta keep moving
    I've gotta stay on the move

    I had a dream but I called it a plan
    A stream of hopes that I figured would serve me well
    But then the dream turned sour
    "Sometimes delusions aint the comfort you want them to be"
    Now I'm broke and my luck's run out
    My new acquaintances will never be someone to trust
    My house is now a grave yard
    It's hard to fall asleep with no one watching your back

    Well you've got my name now it's all the same
    It don't mean much but you can have it all
    "And I sold my heart for another start"
    "I had my face burnt, I shattered it all"
    And now the price is a big one

    Well, I had me a good life
    Yeah, I had me a good life
    But I had to keep moving
    Oh I was made to keep moving
    And I know that I messed up
    Yeah, I know that I messed up
    But I still gotta keep moving
    Yeah, I still gotta move

    "Though my mind is made up
    And I'm no different now, but
    I follow the questions because I'm bored with the answers
    I'm bored with the answers
    Sure I missed a lot
    And I'm no better off but,
    Sitting idle aint a thing I was built for
    I gotta keep moving
    Gotta stay on the move, gotta..."

    Well I had me a good life
    But I had to keep moving
    Well I had me a good life
    But I've still gotta keep moving



    All fixed.
