Lyrics

The Ones You laughed at

Written By: F. Brosseau

Tame the beast, I don’t care.
Last night I resolved your favorite stare
I’ll pay to tell you what I feel
It’s a mindset I could never leave.

The ones you laughed at now look down at you.

I’m not sure I’m getting through
Far behind me blares the evening news
Call my cel phone, it’s now my voice
Stand aside you know you’ve made your choice

Heaven knows what happened in your youth
Hypnotizing visions have fallen through
And the Ones you laughed at now look down at you.

In the static of design
Unbeknownst to me I waste my time
I just stared up my bones
Pent up guilt grows cold

Heaven knows what happened in your youth
Hypnotizing visions have fallen through
And the Ones you laughed at now look down at you.

(Hush now Baby don’t you cry, everything should be alright I’m told)
(The sky just turned the deepest blue, and I don’t understand what’s eating you)
(Never let it go but make your peace)
(Never let it go but make your peace)

Home Again

Written By: F. Brosseau

Just hang on, we're over there
Hope that fits, get over here
I'm not mad, look I got you one
It's not you, it's everyone

Easy now, look you're full of friends
And in one quick bat of your eye, you're home again

There's this time, I remember now
It's that thing you showed me how
I was lost, gone complete
Next time 'round, we were in too deep

Easy now, look you're full of friends
And in one quick bat of your eye, you're home again

Big John

Written By: Archery

BIG JOHN

Big John removes the blinders from his eyes thinking
can I tax another lie
the meter's running, motion loses space
all my bearings lost

Cheap guilt revives and crawls out of the ditch
blocks lanes demand a ride
take the back-roads, hope your thoughts stay clean
wrestling demons just to make the scene

hold on
I'm not scared; I just can't breathe
I'm upset
from lessons learned on highways in my head

Exhume the record detail stains and remains
find the traces of a lie
Pick your pattern; I hope you make it fit
by drawing maps that don't mean a thing

hold on
I'm not scared; I just can't breathe
I'm upset
from lessons learned on highways in my head

I should be done but where'd you find your sense of place
Is it... look back inside your head
there it is did you pack well for your trip
Lessons learned on highways in my head

hold on
I'm not scared; I just can't breathe
I'm upset
from lessons learned on highways in my head

DON’T TALK TO ME MOON

Written By: F. Brosseau

DON’T TALK TO ME MOON

Don’t talk to me Moon
I’ll lose my wealth of reasons
To be kind to you on such a night
Walking home alone

I’ve serious things to think
Like rent and wage and where I’m going
Don’t trap me in your haze

Keep your distance if I stare at you too long
Keep a shawl of cloud by your face
I’m convinced you’re more than solid rock and ice
But your voices don’t sound right
And your answers don’t feel right tonight

Don’t talk to me Moon
I don’t have time or need
To dwell, dip too long
In your mawkish water well.

Keep your distance if I stare at you too long
Keep a shawl of cloud by your face
I’m convinced you’re more than solid rock and ice
I’m convinced you’ll twist my faith

Don’t talk to me moon
I’m tired; I’m going to bed.
But you wax and woon the muses chord
I’m balmy 32

Keep your distance if I stare at you too long
Keep a shawl of cloud by your face
I’m convinced you’re more than solid rock and ice
But your voices don’t sound right
And your answers don’t feel right tonight

Don’t talk to me moon
