co-written with JJ Baron the week that Marlon Brando died.

lyrics

Does it suffice to say that mortal hearts are blind
Given this lowdown situation
Given your uptown state of mind
The loaded dice you play won't buy you any time
Given this lowdown situation
Given your uptown state of mind

Hey Mama, did you see my face on the picture screen
I took at streetcar named desire but I landed somewhere in between
Hey Mama, are we just moving from scene to scene
Moving in and out of somewhere but I'm never really where I seem.

Is it enough to try to memorize your lines
Given this lowdown situation
Given your uptown state of mind
Choke back the tears and deny mistakes you can't rewind
Given this lowdown situation
Given your uptown state of mind

Hey Mama, did you see my face on the picture screen
I was standing on the waterfront trying to justify the means
Hey Mama, are we just moving from scene to scene
Were you emulating Monroe living in the Whole Year Inn

Is it alright if we just leave the script behind
Given this lowdown situation
Given your uptown state of mind
Your State of Mind
Your State of Mind
Your State of Mind

about

Ryan Fitzsimmons Boston, Massachusetts

Aquarium Drunkard said: "His rhythmic folk songs are more of the hand-banging variety, his delivery marked with dark traces like the end of the night, and he plays with captivating confidence."
