lyrics

They bombed the clinics and burned the cynic's, then went to Rome and build giant walls
men with dreams and mounted kings, across the treaterous continents they trod
he preferred his dirty feet but they dressed him in pricey purple robes
& said don't read it for yourself, we'll tell you what it says. Now give us gold
do you see where this is going? Nowhere good
Then they put it on the three ships. Now we're banking on the British to bring it home
well I guess that they were too late, cause that Joseph Smith he swears by what he saw
and if your wondering if generations bound in ancient politics were the point just ask Paul
ask him what he saw
And all these men of God don't speak for me at all
Every man's his own. There is no law.
There's only love my friend
now I'm no friend of Nietzsche but I don't give a fuck what you're preaching. Some things are just once and for all
kick ass & take names, give vent to your rage ain't that the way to win that we've been told
I got the one, two, do unto punch comin', but I refuse to be there when you fall. When you fall
And I've come to love the season's. I don't need to know the reasons why they change
But they labeled every movement & think we can improve what we can't explain
You're missing everything
So I've come to raise a panic. I've been hoping the Atlantic for so long
and the things I've seen, well my friend it needs to be said. Christ is not your pawn
Though you've tried for so long

Son of a cowboy & raised on old country & gospel, maybe the flavor should have presented itself earlier. But from his years concentrated in the ‘indie’ scene, he’s now presenting a true & unique “Nu-Folk” style. His band, The Make Believe is an rotating, international cast ... more
