This is me now. The nostalgia. The regrets. The wisdom I've managed to gain. This is me on Highway 45.

Track Name: Regretville
Hop in my whiskey ride
and I'm drivin'
down Highway 45
blow all the lights
on the way to Regretville
I hear they've got a bar there
open all night

Julie's waiting in the dark for me to kiss her
a little green house on a little green street
conniving and undermining directors
Best laid plans kept me drunk in her back seat

Hop in my whiskey ride
and I'm drivin'
down Highway 45
blow all the lights
on the way to Regretville
I hear they've got a bar there
open all night

That night she didn't want me to take the high road
backfire makes the baby cry
Too afraid to speak so I ghosted
I wasn't strong enough to watch him lose his mind

Hop in my whiskey ride
and I'm drivin'
down Highway 45
blow all the lights
on the way to Regretville
I hear they've got a bar there
open all night

Walk it off
dial it back
talk it down
Make it work
lay it out
kick it around
Walk it off
dial it back
talk it down
Make it work
lay it out
kick it around

The man just wanted to buy me a beer
They were too kind and carried the load
I attacked him in a battle I had no stake in
And I'm pretty sure there's plenty more up the road

Hop in my whiskey ride
and I'm drivin'
down Highway 45
blow all the lights
on the way to Regretville
I hear they've got a bar there
open all night
Track Name: Dipshit
You've got it all together
and you're always saying so
you speak in obscure movie quotes
that no one else would know
Your status updates are full
of what you think is wit
you're full of advice and platitudes
but you live like a dipshit

Make sure you're the brainy fish
at the dumb end of the pond
all bitches be crazy
after you give up the wand
you're never really listening
you're prepping your next quip
you think you're a racontuer
but you sound like a dipshit

You've got this swagger that you just haven't earned
liar liar pants on fire from the bridges that you've burned
enraged but disengaged, anger doesn't make you smart
I want to shout and dress you out but I haven't got the heart

The music gets louder
as the hairline recedes
you're sweet and magnanimous
when you're talking to the plebes
we better just deal
'cause you shoot from the hip
you're like Babe Ruth hitting balls of truth
but you're just a dipshit
