about

Written and originally performed by Big Business (Los Angeles, California). I first met Jared and Coady while working at the Milestone Club in Charlotte, NC and we stayed in touch over the years, occasionally crossing paths in different parts of the country. When I moved to Los Angeles we were on a show together and not long after they asked me to open for them on a six week U.S. tour. Because of this bonding experience they are now some of my dearest friends. They performed this song every night on that tour and I absolutely loved it and dreamed up the idea of covering it then. I'm thrilled to have finally made that a reality as it still speaks to me strongly.

lyrics

Steel yourself
And cover up
It’s colder than you think
Avoid the vipers
How can you tell?
They’re the ones with the real mean stares

You don’t have to get bigger
But you have to get out of this space

When your body’s tired
Take a rest
If you’re lost follow the sun
You’ll need focus
Strong back for work
It’s going to take some time
But not mine

You don’t have to get bigger
But you have to get out of this space

How can I build it all?
Use your hands and your will
What if I feel afraid?
Stay calm be still
And if it falls apart?
Well that’s luck
And some things can only get better

Steel yourself
And cover up
It’s colder than you think

You don’t have to get bigger
But you have to get out of this space

How can I build it all?
Use your hands and your will
What if I feel afraid?
Stay calm be still
And if it falls apart?
Well that’s luck
And some things can only get better
