The first single from The Mike Benign Compulsion's 2014 release, "Here's How It Works"


Found your love found your bearings found your deeper you
But nothing falls off the truck no
Nothing falls off the truck yeah

Found in an envelope concealed in a book
You put it there yourself
And couldn’t help but take a look

I’ve got a feeling you’re gonna crumble Haley Daley

Crashed your car killed your parents
Found it suited you
But nothing falls off the truck yeah
Nothing falls off the truck no
Sucked the final smiles out of optimists you caught parading
Do you believe your luck ’cause nothing falls off the truck

Who among the living wants to ride this to completion
