The first single off of the 2019 album "The Castle", to be released this April.


I quit trying to keep this boat afloat
I quit trying to cover up this sinkhole
If we sink, I guess I'll just accept it
'Cause I quit

I quit putting out the fires on the bridge
I quit treating my time like a sales pitch
I'm done dragging myself through the grit
'Cause I quit

I'm starving while you're carving a bigger slice
It's not the way of give-and-take to go and take twice
You'll go find another host for your parasite
'Cause I quit

Can't say I didn't try
To keep it all alive
I can't hold the door much longer
I can't hold the door much longer.
