With this hand, I’ve posted blinds a hundred thousand times.
Yeah, been ‘bout that many rounds.
After a while, don’t feel as much
The ups and downs.
Stack’s high, my heart don’t pound.
Stack’s down, I don’t pout.
And all these squares sit down.
Think they can draw me out?
That it matters what they do.
But, for all their superstitions,
Each card remains one in fifty-two.
Yeah, well, they come and go.
Funny, how they can’t even see
That what they believe
Is not the same as what they know.
Sometimes wonder, though I know
This is no place you’d visit.
Think maybe soon I’ll just run into you.
Well, that’s not so bright. Now, is it?
I do well, and you should see.
Checks dance so erratic, somehow still settle with me.
That there was another track.
But that train’s pulled away now,
And I got nothing now. Nothing for to drag that back.
Yeah, and I’ve had my go.
Funny, when you can’t even see
That what you believe
Is not the same as what you know.
I take my hit, but I keep grinding on.
GRINDER: “Make it two.”
DEALER: “Two bets.”
GRINDER: “Nah, I know you don’t have it. Lay down, kid.”

words by Brian Rose, music by Tyler Currier, Nelson Pavlosky and Brian Rose
Tom Suhey provided the voice of the dealer, which means he got to say exactly two words on this album ;-)
New Jersey-based songwriting duo Nelson Pavlosky and Brian Rose carefully craft complex songs in the classic rock tradition
with an alternative vibe. If you smashed The Who into The Goo Goo Dolls, you might get Wrong Side of Dawn. Or you might get a fistfight between Johnny Rzeznik and Roger Daltrey. Either way you can't lose!...more
