dangerchris85 Full disclosure, I fully support this band and what they do.

If you were to hear someone whining and complaining that no one makes good or original music, you could play this album and prove them wrong on the spot.

Check this one out, you will not be disappointed.

Welcome Home 02:10
Look, I'm rehearsing for a play in a storage unit, see? Hoping that the words I say turn chaos to community one believer tryna way my own responsability optimism in decay you disagree, I disagree Money made - money spent So bored my head explodes extended moment lent and not a second I am owed it's never ending 'till it ends (not even the clever know) love my dog and love my friends learn to fly and fight and crow and Hey! Welcome Home, be at ease, grow your hair down to your knees, shave your dome (if you please) - it's your home so be at ease! I think i'm gonna skip a day i'll take a trip and miss a train i'll kiss the sky, fake i'm sick, kick my way against the grain. Flip the script, trick my brain, slip out through a secret door, lightning quick - can't explain - won't maintain it anymore I'm afraid! I'm afraid! But I do it anyway! Climb over the barricade my time has come to disobey. There's a lightness to my step, there's a twinkle in my eye, I do not regret the day I let the grand delusion die Hey! Welcome Home, be at ease, grow your hair down to your knees, shave your dome (if you please) - it's your home so be at ease! (who gives a fuck if they're pleased?)

Far Away 02:47
I hope: -all the corespondence via text -and never feel my gut relaxed -the secret mould and sweet perfumes -these feelings of impending doom -monologues so water-tight -the endless list I didn't write -the men who love to condescend -and phony friends would go far away from here, far away from here. I hope: -all the things that scare my dog -and fake predictions in a fog -inherited internal shit -another fucking mining pit -water-treader/leaf in wind -and all the 'where's' I could've been -you shitting on my vision -and these superstitions go far away from here, far away from here. Get the fuck away! So fucking far away from here, disappear! Get out of my path! You are a splinter in my finger and i've had enough - I've had ENOUGH! I want the fun - you bring the pain I want the sun - you bring the rain I open up and you act tough I've fucking had ENOUGH! Hey, shitvibes - it's time to go! Gotta breathe in, now gotta breathe out, Gotta breathe in, now gotta breathe out, Gotta breathe in, now gotta breathe out, Find a way to say this clearly... Gotta breathe in, now gotta breathe out, Gotta breathe in, now gotta breathe out, Gotta breathe in, now gotta breathe out, I want you nowhere near me So get the fuck away! So fucking far away from here, disappear! Get out of my path! You are a splinter in my finger and i've had enough - I've had ENOUGH! I want the fun - you bring the pain I want the sun - you bring the rain I open up and you act tough I've fucking had ENOUGH!

Squirm 03:15
At first the light discovers weakness in the curtains I have nailed to the wall, [eyelids release] and I am certain I can answer to the call. Although i'm beached upon polluted shores I whisper complex overtures composed as themes to secret wars on entropy, I squirm. I drink my cup of drugs, tie my boots at the bottom of the hill (which does not bludgeon my resolve but rather fortifies my will) I try to rake the leaves consistantly learn to accept the mystery yearn to bloom out of the misery and find my soul and feel its form and then grab hold inside this storm and don't stop moving keep unfolding it's not losing I am golden I am now Where nothing can cut me down and nothing can fell me and nothing to which I am bound and no one can sell me shit You know I squirm like a fish on the shoreline turn from the man getting rich on the poor learn from the rube in the que to the berghein only to be burned like that at the door, like: "what's that?" A life devoid of crests but to avoid a trough is just a line I will not go out flat, i'll go to bat while haning from the vine I never wait around a waiting place nor rat around a rodent race I dance my way through time and space to find my soul and feel its form and then grab hold inside this storm and don't stop moving keep unfolding it's not losing I am golden I am now Where nothing can cut me down and nothing can fell me and nothing to which I am bound and no one can sell me shit

I was in the jungle, snug, -one bug just tryna mind my business 'Snake-bite' [enter stage right] (con-man come to make my moments rattle) Thrust into a struggle tugged from <here (resentment) there> (forgiveness) I am pleasent - want my present, this insect's not made for battle (But if I have to I will). Can't play well with other peeps So they kill us all Only know how to play for keeps So they kill us all Fuck apocolyptic heads! They will kill us all With their circuses and bread They will kill us all your destinations fell my 'why' was never answered well I was in a city built by caloused hands and crushing debt -a pilgrim from the night before i'd forgotten all your pressure. In my DIY cathedral in a tapestry of TV sets where business is an endless war but this insect is made for leisure (and cos I have to I will) Can't play well with other peeps So they kill us all Only know how to play for keeps So they kill us all Fuck apocolyptic heads! They will kill us all With their circuses and bread They will kill us All your explinations stink yet there's no kool-aid left to drink An idiot with razor-will They will kill us all A hunger they will never fill They will kill us A burning book / an oil spill They will kill us all Your children will all foot the bill They will kill us
