Track Name: Routes Roots
it's the evolution of somebody else so let go of the heart and we will do the rest
so turn over that rock and find something that crawls will you hold on or feel nothing at all?
it's the bastard version of what we call "friends", lies from deep set eyes and what we think of them
I ain't no poet see and this ain't poetry just meaningless words that start and end in roots that make up a tree
even with a knife to your own throat you still say "I don't know nothing"
even with a knife to your own throat you still say "I don't got nothing"
even with a knife to your own throat you still say "I don't know nothing"
even with a knife to your own throat you still say "I want everything"
you still say, you still say, you still say, you still say, you still say
you said
come forth through the forest have you found what you seek prepare yourself mind matter decree
through the solace surrounding hides in veils of light this warmth approach this vision at night
this starving beast exhausts me to maintain feeling it close by and the hearts that it drains
so I must fuel its rage to subdue my own if that's the answer then I must go it alone to where they stand tall and mighty
follow their lifelines
roots that make up a tree
even though you, even though you, knife to your own throat, knife to your own throat
still said nothing
follow their lifeline its time to bury yourself in the ground
still said nothing, still said nothing at all
Track Name: Empty Bones
born in capitol letters
must strive to gain the trust; we're not strangers
always accumulating
your memory becomes of times of stretching your wings
learn to sing these beaks muster strength to fight
to keep this lavish lifestyle
empty nest that you don't know how to protect
but there's a sense of attachment anyway
time slips above
the sound and crack of thunder
intentions revealed with that broken gaze
with that broken gaze
with that broken gaze
Track Name: Bandaids
i'm stuck on bandaid brand cause bandaids are stuck on me
i'm stuck on bandaid brand cause bandaids are stuck on me
cause they really stick to your fingers and they stick on bended knees
i'm stuck on bandaid brand cause bandaids are stuck on me
they hold on tight no matter what to fingers, toes and knees
i'm stuck on bandaid brand cause bandaids are stuck on me
Track Name: Odds and Ends
I laugh at the overwhelming odds that often lie shit-faced in my lap
like a stray cat that needs to be neutered if you know what I mean
and in your head I know what you're thinking and in your mind I know that you've been planning this for quite some time
amassing the pieces to collage a canvas of afflictions while mercenary maggots pull out their forks and knives and feast like anorexics on vacation
don't try to look me in the eye
would you rather forget or die they're one and the same
hello how are you dear there is something in the air although tasteless I can sense the bitterness that awaits for my tongue
amassing the people to support your problems of addiction while everybody's just in it for their own selves and I'm left stranded with my own misconceptions
I hide the knife in my heart pretty damn well
Track Name: Dear Nana
dear nana you gave me 300 dollars and now I'm rich
thanks nana you gave me 300 dollars and now I'm rich, yeah I'm rich
making money, getting paid, capitalizing on my investments
I am free, keep this clean, I'm a regular money making machine
and how does it feel to be way up there what a view
you and who? I am through
dear nana you gave me 300 dollars and now I'm rich
thanks nana you gave me 300 dollars and now I'm rich, yeah I'm rich
Dorothy I love everything you do keep drinking that blue and tell us some dirty jokes
couldn't age any more beautifully and I'm happy to be one of those from your family tree
thanks nana you gave me 300 dollars and now I'm rich, yeah I'm rich
Track Name: Hey Kids
hey kids long live rock and roll
hey kids long live rock and roll
it's the season to be indoors
hey kids long live rock and roll
and I know you don't like that
cause you'd rather be out in the trees
experiencing everything
hey kids long live rock and roll
hey kids long live rock and roll
so don't let yourself get stuck in the snow
Track Name: Walking Talk
when you're walking in a storm from work to home
cause the buses won't go (make it be spring with everything)
and you're all alone (passing those feathers 'round)
do you want a change of this modern pace
do you know for sure you've got the right to go?
it's funny cause you know (we stole their land but they just kept playing the brass)
you know (make it be spring with everything)
you learned your lesson the first time (passing those feathers 'round)
you learned that it's time to be on time
now that you've come out behind those banks and borders
I've seen the great sea you realize your own pettyness
it's funny cause
it's funny cause you know (we stole their land but they just kept playing the brass)
you know (that's the kind of optimism we should strive for)
you didn't go (making it be spring with everything)
you learned your lesson the first time (passing those feathers 'round)
you learned that it's time to be on time
