It's been awhile since John Fitzpatrick and I have colloaborated and this one's a doozy! All credit to John for the fantastic idea, lyrics, and mixing. Thanks, John!

You think I’m kidding but I’m not
I just sit counting in the dark
I may have guests at my home tonight
No answer when they ask “Where's Tone?”
And the numbers climb so very slow
I get calmer as I count you know

Sometimes I sit and I stare, I just zone
I’m not sure it’s so wise that I told you
This might get me sent to a home
I just sit counting alone
I just sit counting alone

*A parody of "Alone" by Heart

YES!! Loads o' Laughs. "That's. Simply. Great." Ok, it's no "I have a piano," but nice effort.
