about

A morality tale for birds of a feather with deep, ominous, foreboding drones and wiggly beats built to confuse those waiting to be famous.

Monologue driven impromptu thoughts over drum machine and filtered guitar.

lyrics

Looking back on my memory sequence
I can’t find me a witness
Cuz I’m alone
A moss covered stone

Talking stacks and sugary science
It’s leaving me eyeless
Cuz I’m a clone
Just soft silicone

Believing smack and mercury guidance
Checking out the atlas
With a wishbone
Lost in headphones

Acting slack with bravery fragrance
Waiting to be famous
Not quite full grown
Glossed and unknown

Being lax with recovery hindrance
Not into fitness
More like homegrown
I’m the boss of post-pone

Trampled by the Steeple’s choir
Hanging on the Empire’s idol
I believe these days are dire
Fundamentally suicidal

Oh, to be an elder in the city that sleeps at the bar
[x3] Birds of a feather together forever
Clever, clever, clever, clever, clever, clever, clever

Asking hacks about my lottery grievance
Cuz I’m feeling so helpless
Kicked shinbone
No megaphone

Calling Jack with slippery patience
But the guy is a genius
With a trombone
He’s a cross cyclone

Begging snacks with cursory cadence
And feeling quite anxious
I’ve lost my throne
Exhaust has been blown

Reading racks of glittery essence
So I can paint on my canvas
With a gemstone
Embossed with a groan

Stepping cracks with advisory license
Then treat ‘em like a cactus
Let’s make the tombstone
Out of frost and a moan

Trampled by the Steeple’s choir
Hanging on the Empire’s idol
I believe these days are dire
Fundamentally suicidal

Oh, to be an elder in the city that sleeps at the bar
[x3] Birds of a feather together forever
Clever, clever, clever, clever, clever, clever, clever
