Bobby went off to grad school, left Mary behind

Compromises at the age of 25

Now he's got a degree but jobs are hard to get

Boy traded love to be in debt

Now Mary's starting over, but it's a hard road

What once was normal has become unbearable

And now they cut her hours down at the “Fire Pit”

Cut too many to live. Not enough to quit

But Mary it'll be over soon, it's just them recession blues

Now Bobby's livin with the rents cuz the rent is free

At 27 he thinks I'm too old to be me

And all his friends are settlin. Buyin baby clothes

They got their 5 year plans. He wished he had one of those

But Bobby it'll be over soon, it's just them recession blues

Tell me how will these poor kids place

In a world that's become one big race

A race for love and money, power and fame

Is all we are that which we attain.

But it'll be over soon. It'll be over soon. It'll be over soon.

It's just them recession blues


from There's No Basement at the Alamo, released September 26, 2015
