WINNER of Song of the week 12/5/2015!

From the album Smoke + Mirrors
One of my personal favorites on the album, with another awesome Vic Firth video.
You will never feel the song the same again after seeing that one!

"Hopeless Opus"

Hey Mr. cage man let me get a fresh breath
Cherry bomb head strong I could fake my own death
Hey Mr. fate man shuffle me a ninth life
I’ve been wrong, go long
throwing me a sharp right
It’s not a picture perfect life
Not what I had in mind
Let me write my own line

[Chorus:]
I’ve got this place
That I’ve filled with empty space
Oh I’m trying not to face what I’ve done
My hopeless opus
I’m in this race and I’m hoping just to place
Oh I’m trying not to face what’s become of me
My hopeless opus

Hey Mr. safe man hustle me an okay
I could slide take a dive take it for the home team
Hey Mr. postman slip me one more green note
I’ve been low hit the floor looking just to make broke
It’s not a picture perfect life
Not what I had in mind
Let me write my own line

[Chorus:]
I’ve got this place
That I’ve filled with empty space
Oh I’m trying not to face what I’ve done
My hopeless opus
I’m in this race and I’m hoping just to place
Oh I’m trying not to face what’s become of me
My hopeless opus

Hey Mr.
Hey Mr.
Hey Mr. cage man
Cherry bomb
Let me get
Cherry bomb
Cherry bomb

[Chorus:]
I’ve got this place
That I’ve filled with empty space
Oh I’m trying not to face what I’ve done
My hopeless opus
I’m in this race and I’m hoping just to place
Oh I’m trying not to face what’s become of me
My hopeless opus
