Better Already :: Northern State

I'm not super familiar with Northern State, other than they are hip-hop-ish and they are cool. My friend Kelly sent me the video for this song and she said it reminded her of me... was it the s'mores? the unicorns? or the super-gay rainbows and lightning bolts? Or maybe it's been all the shit we've had to go through just to ride the Friend-Ship together.

Or it could be my ten-month journey to recovering from a identity-shattering breakup. After all the b.s. I went through, I didn't even know who I was anymore. I felt about 90 years old, and I finally had to admit to myself and my friends that I could no longer take care of myself. They pulled me up, dragged me out, introduced me to people, and made me laugh when all I wanted to do was die. I dedicated my life at that point to getting "better": I took the summer off, went camping, spent a week in DC, and really began to live for the first time in my life.

Here's the video, it's super zany:

We don't have to leave the living room to have a good time-
Everywhere we go- people want to know-
We don't have to leave the living room to have a good time�K

Get ready, already, no time to waste
No matter what we do it's still the case
We're stuck in one place
Like I'm standing on your shoelace
We come face to face or
Stand back to back
We trick the train to stay on track

And we don't have to leave the living room to have a good time!

We going way out- now
We gonna head down- now
Singing hey now-
Call when you're on my block
at the end of your luck so-

we getting on we getting better already
the truth be told you're know we're better already
uh oh oh uh oh oh oh
we getting on we getting better already

gotta get out of my own way so I could go my own way
say what I wanna say on audio delay
move my mouth and throw my voice
retrace my steps, my choice, my plan
begin again where we began

And we don't have to leave the living room to have a good time!

We going way out- now
We gonna head down- now
Singing hey now-
Call when you're on my block
at the end of your luck so-

we getting on we getting better already
the truth be told you know we're better already
uh oh oh uh oh oh oh
we getting on we getting better already

Hey! Hey!

Deep water, deep cracks, deep holes and deep creases
Deep sleeping dreams of broken pieces
Pick them up and make them fit
Quit or don't quit. Get even, some new shit can you believe in.

we getting on we getting better already
the truth be told you know we're better already
uh oh oh uh oh oh oh
we getting on we getting better already (x2)

We don't have to leave the living room to have a good time-
Everywhere we go- people want to know-
We don't have to leave the living room to have a good time�K
