Love Note From The Future

to the end and back. maybe.

Ever since that big causeway break
You’re in that trance where you never come out
& I keep flashing on that big wave
That came & washed our only way out

that’s all I know that’s all I know seven long years that’s all I know

Summer passed me by
You oughta know you
Were the reason why I
Wasted all this
Time

Always are stories you always tell
Drown it all out sleep through the night
Candides laughing behind every water well
All the hate and greed and power now amplified

it’s all the same it’s all the same since before before the wave

Summer passed me by
You oughta know you
Were the reason why I
Wasted all this
Time

I stopped thinking about life without war
Now there’s no such thing left as small talk
But I’ll never let down this old guitar
Even when it weighs so much
and this is such
a
long
walk

The why lie p-i.


AUSTINTOWN (ELECTION DAY 2004)

When they dig us up – they might never know
We dug so deep – left our evidence so far below
They might even think we were older than dinosaurs

Arrogance thinks we’ll see the end of the world
That we’d be last ones – that we’d get

the truth/the truth
it’s just funny how the truth
is just like Austintown

½ way between here & there
so many secrets I can’t begin to dare
to leave
escaping only in my dreams
sounds like Austintown

They’re gonna say we went backwards – all the way back
Before we went forward again

Karma

choose a side, for once.

At least stand up for love
Since you never say the wrong thing
And you’re always on the right side

But you’ve never known stars brighter than a city night
‘Cause you never had to choose a side.
