lyrics

Bottoms up, it’s on the house, the spirit’s made from lies!
Intoxicating fumes numb the wits and paralyze!
The glass appears half empty if you are an optimist!
Instead, we drink to remind ourselves that ignorance is bliss.

Looking in, you shout, “me too!”
And before you know it, the hooks are in you
Put a gun up to my head and the best you’ll get is “maybe”
But what did you expect? I ain’t your fuckin’ baby.

Everybody’s inchin’ for a piece of my resolve,
and if I go, they say they’ll show me how to get involved.
But not a single thing but me could ever force my hand,
I’ll come alive outside the hive, and then you’ll understand.

Looking in, you shout, “me too!”
And before you know it, the hooks are in you
Put a gun up to my head and the best you’ll get is “maybe”
But what did you expect? I ain’t your fuckin’ baby.

We’re in it now…

Plans work just as well as running straight into a wall,
We can’t look up or else we’ll miss the ambush and we’ll fall.
We’re breaking through the bedrock with a hammer made of glass,
but soon enough we’ll reach the frenzied state of critical mass.

Looking in, you shout, “me too!”
And before you know it, the hooks are in you
Put a gun up to my head and the best you’ll get is “maybe”
But what did you expect? I ain’t your fuckin’ baby.

The band (Jeremy Denham, Suvesh Pratapa, and Jeff Moffett) is determined to write ambitious and poignant material about the increasing ways in which we connect and disconnect with each other, and how that chaos affects our generation. ... more
