I Work The Line

by Feels Goodman

Yoo! This is the 1st song off a 5 track concept EP I made. The song is about the oldest story known to man: grinding it out in music only to find yourself working in kitchens in your 30s. The EP goes though that journey using familiar 90s Pop Punk conventions. Hope you like it :D
