Recorded on a Saturday morning in October 2014. Done live off the floor at Red Tree Studios and very few over dubs. Namely: vocals, shakers, trumpet and an acoustic guitar. No metronome was used either.. just to prove (hopefully) that machines can be used only for pure evil at times.. So yeah, please pay us for the track! we are trying to raise money for a full album and every dollar counts!


The Future:
If i had to wait, if i had to dream
would i see the light, if i had a choice
if they had a string, tugging on their heart
throw the game and mute, if we had a choice
should a painted bird
fight to keep it's flight?
should we x it out?
or give it a new life
we all made our minds, we can all forget
why we chose this way, what to do with it
perfect in it's scheme,
perfect in it's end
who could break it down?
who could question it?
should a painted bird
fight to keep it's flight?
should we x it out?
or give it a new life
i, could hope
this failure
could only show
the heroes
the way of sight
when dead
wrong or right
or end?
all alone
crashing deck of cards
all were born
to struggle with this life
flipped over
pictures i cant use
all reach out
searching for all truth
corporatizing and
isolating and destroying
never knew why we were
always running
could we not see
our future coming
