10. We Carry On

“A beautiful finish to this album. It’s very well-written, telling stories of unfortunate men and women and how we all carry on with our lives. Holds special meaning to me. Another one of my favorites.”

9. Do You Want Fries With That

“This has to be one of the funniest, most entertaining songs I’ve listened to in a long time. Written from the point of view of a man behind the drive-in window of a fast-food restaurant, it’s telling about the man on the other side of the window who’s living the life he once did. Great chorus and verses, very entertaining! Definitely one of my favorites!!”
