about

Back in the states after a year of work and travel in china, I received an email from a close friend revealing that he had been doing heroin, and that I was the only person that he chose to tell. Struggling to find a solution to a nearly impossible problem -- do you call the parents / Do you go to China? -- I started writing "Come Out Alright". The chorus is directly taken from the email I received.
He's better now, not fighting alone.

lyrics

My little one can't see
All of the harm I bring on to her
and me

Walking home alone
book in my hand
grin in my brain
I descend into a side street

Somewhere in this room
There's a fire
Is it you?

The red light pushes underneath the door
I don't care
in these sheets I don't sleep

I always seem
to come out alright
In the end, don't I?
In the end
In the end don't I

Someday one day I know
You'll open the door on me
I'll get found out

Somewhere in this room
There's a fire
Is it you?

The red light is testing me daily
I don't care
In these sheets I don't sleep alone

I always seem
to come out alright
In the end, don't I?
In the end
In the end don't I

You know what i'm like
I take what I want I take
What I want outside

Three chairs the man don't care
Though they pretend to wait for me there
Three chairs the man don't care
Though they pretend to wait for me there
