about

That feeling just out of high school when you don't know what direction your life is heading in. You have big dreams that don't always pan out. This was written early in the 2000s and was recorded on my Zoom PS04 around 2005.

lyrics

Well you're just out of high school ain't got your toes wet
Can't get a credit card so you're not behind yet
Search for a job but there's no help here
Wonder where you'll be at the end of the year

Start community college found a part-time job
The pay ain't so great and your boss is a slob
At least it's enough to keep your belly filled
maybe in a couple years you'll pay off those bills

The American dream the American way
Not much to do but just get up and pray
For a better life than the one you've got now
Maybe by next year you could make your daddy proud

A couple years later you haven't made it yet
Got your first credit card so you think you've got it set
You've worked your way up to a managers slot
But you cant help the feeling that it's time to move on

The American dream the American way
Not much to do but just get up and pray
For a better life than the one you've got now
Maybe by next year you could make your daddy proud

Now you're just out of college and placing your bets
Maxed out those credit cards and built up some debt
It may come out roses it may come out weeds
But you've got to take that risk for the American dream

The American dream the American way
Not much to do but just get up and pray
For a better life than the one you've got now
Maybe by next year you could make your daddy proud

The American dream the American way
Not much to do but just get up and pray
For a better life than the one you've got now
Maybe by next year you could make your daddy proud

about

Beatnick's Odyssey Ocala, Florida

I've been writing and recording music for several years now. I started with a tape recorder in front of my mothers piano and have gone through many phases. While I started on the piano I do play guitar and bass as well and usually program drums. I'm reaching a time where I'm reinventing myself. I'm not sure where it will lead me, but I'm continuing on with Beatnick's Odyssey. ... more
