Isola Bella sessions (unreleased). Tired of your life situation and who you are ; you keep on, knowing your intentions "happiness, or bust". love the prison escape imagery in 1st bridge, think "cool hand luke".

Lyrics

stumbling in the rain,
mud on my heart, and it's crippling my faith,
throwing up my hands at the cards that i've played,
just because, i'm so tired
of all that i was.

.......tired of the sirens, the bullhorns, the chains.
.......running from the dogs through the pouring rain,
.......running like the devil, with the devil on my tail,
.......trapped like a Jonah in the belly of a whale,

mumbling in the rain,
to myself, and to anyone who's game,
one more poor man, with his tin cup of rust,
just because, i'm so tired
of all that i was.

(2nd verse missing in this version! sorry, oops!)

......tired of the flood, got me down on my knees,
......tired of the darkness, surrounding me,
......tired of these dreams, so insidious and bold,
......got me living like a dead man, chasing dead man's gold,

trudging along, one more joe,
filled with wine, women and song. yet i know
sign in my heart says "happiness, or bust"
just because, i'm so tired
of all that i was.
