Imagine you walk into a party and hear a song that sounds like an allstar jam featuring Nirvana, Ween, Black Sabbath, Dino jr, Genesis, Pixies, Modest Mouse, Weezer, Soft Machine, Springsteen, The Smiths & Neil Young. However, there's a unique original sound that you can't explain. This is Papership

Lyrics

Scratch

Written By: Ivan Elk

He walked away without a scratch
When he sould have lost his back
He walked away with a smile on his face
Never turned away
In disgrace
He walked away
Without a scratch
On his face
Or on his back
He should have been in the ground
Should have been in the ground
Six feet below me
Ten feet below you
One hundred foot below the top of my house
He walked away into the field
Round poppy seeds fell to the ground
and he did yield
A smile upon his face
That no one could touch
A smile so wide and deep
That is made me blush
He walked away
Without a scratch
On his face
Or on his back
He should have been in the ground
Should have been in the ground
Six feet below me
Ten feet below you
One hundred foot below the top of my house
The hounds of hell they're barking at me
I bet I walk away and still see
The sun of heaven above me
The sun and sky will recieve me
I walked away
Without a scratch
On my face
Or on my back
I should have been in the ground
Should have been in the ground
Six feet below me
Ten feet below you
One hundred foot below the top of my house

Car

Written By: Col. J.P. Marks

I was down lookin' at the railroad train
I was tryin to find my car
I was downtown lookin at the railroad train
I couldn't find my car
well I was downtown at the place I stayed
no one ever seemed to well
I was downtown lookin at the railroad train
I was tryin to find my car
I was looking to far as time was ticking away on me
I was feelin kinda weird
I was downtown looking at the city shops
looking for a cigarette
I was down lookin by the railroad train
I was tryin to find my car
I'd been drinkin all night and drivin all over town
wasn't very smart
I was lookin too far
you don't know just where you stand
you don't know who you are
you never made time for the things I love
you never made it very far
well I was down lookin by the railroad train
I was tryin to find my car
I'd been drivin' all night
and lookin' all over town
couldn't find my car
I went lookin' too far
I was lookin' too far

Runnin' to Yourself

Written By: Ivan Elk

I say I see a man cross the street today
and I said to myself
don't you cross the street yourself
because you don't want to
run in to yourself
runnin' to yourself
don't you cross the street today
you don't want to run into yourself
I got into my car
and I drove it to the beach
when I got out
I could not reach
for my towel
beacuse I was cold
as the water dripped off me
you don't wanna run
into yourself today
runnin' to yourself today

Big Chief

Written By: Ivan Elk

A bloody finger
today
a bloody finger
today
and you could see the blood
dripping from my nails
as they dragged me away
the skin was flaking
and they would say
that they would take me to a place
where no one would remember my name
a place where it would feel the same
they're coming for me
a bloody finger
today
a bloody finger
today
and you could see the blood
dripping from the corridor
you knew what had happened
but you felt helpless even though
you were taken to the same place
on another day
and the people
made you stay
they're coming for me
they're coming for me
they're coming for me
they're coming they're coming they're coming
for my bloody finger
today

Satan's Paradise

Written By: Col. J.P. Marks

I'm out here alone
in paradise
no one on the phone
no one in sight
I'm here
there's nothing
in Satan's paradise
everyone is alone
no one is here
and the neighbors stare
are all things that way
there's no time to do right
it's Satan
it's arrived
it's Satan

Heartless Sail

Written By: Ivan Elk

Well a friend of mine came to me today
with questions that I could not
even say
to my friends and family
that they were too much
for my mind
to portray
but the thoughts remain
and the madness
that came
from those dreams
will be
forever inside me
inside me
a fragile mind
can only accept the things that it
understands
and a gold mine can only produce
sand
when you consider the way
it all began
consider the way
that it can be if you say if you will allow yourself to be
who you want to be
allow yourself to be
who you want to be
allow yourself to be
someone
allow yourself to be
the one
and your standing in the doorway
tears on your face
