Road Chief and Jimmy V head to the lake for some inner reflection, hoping for peace of mind.. Recorded 2014 and now released for the first time, featuring Jimmy V's brilliant (inner/outer) voice for this cheeky upbeat song about death and hopelessness.


just a little bit..
just a little bit
just a little bit
just a little bit
...bigger than my own.

i read the news today
oh boy
i saw an obituary
for someone i didn't know..
the mist slowly dripped
from my crying eyes
i was jealous of the
people who died.
until i learn how to live my life
i cut my nose to spite my face
i wish i never knew the pace
because a human's walk is not a race..

i went down to the lake
and i saw a dog with a bone
just a little bit bigger than my own.

and after i took my time
smoke covered my glassy eyes
and i knew one day i'd die
then i'd resurrect in another life
i just hope one day i see the light
with my lover to hold me tight
i walked down to the lake
just to gather some peace of mind
as i reflected from the waves

i went down to the lake
and i saw a dog with a bone
just a little bit bigger than my own..
