Lyrics

Radical Dude

Written By: Parker Silzer

RADICAL DUDE

all that he wants is a radical life to live up to
past great minds and a forward thinking creed
it’s not enough to be the boy that everyone loves he’s
lost in the gray that he never used to see

Stealing the heat of the music made in the foundry
Laced with the verse at the meadowed edge of the sea
Here are words that I’m sure that I've misspoken
But now ain't a time that it matters that much to me

and you might feel like
now there's nothing left for you
but I've heard that one before
what's new?

and what we never feel we see in skin
that all the breaking up's just breaking in
but I could do much worse than being my dad
and If I'm blessed with this I'll face it that

These are the years we'll be desperate to hold onto
haven't we learned that from every book we read

and you might feel like
now there's nothing left for you
but I've heard that one before
what's new?

Nobody Knows This Is Somewhere

Written By: Parker Silzer

NOBODY KNOWS THIS IS SOMEWHERE

don’t tell me you can’t be here
don’t tell me I’m too complacent
these distances
they speak with promise they can’t keep
don’t tell me you can’t be here

still they leave like they don’t care
like nobody knows this is somewhere
just the first in a lifetime
of leaving behind

say, "it’s time that you got moving.
statue stone with moss grown over."
subtleties are seen without a change of scene
but they say,
"don’t the world just make you wonder?"

then they leave like they don’t care
like nobody knows this is somewhere
just the first in a lifetime
of leaving behind

yeah I know this changes us
yeah I know its dangerous
but you stay and you get scared
that though you were okay you went nowhere
just the first in a lifetime
of changing your mind

Old Mill River

Written By: Dylan Vandenhoeck

OLD MILL RIVER

I am just another white man
I have never seen a funeral
Pistol in hand, I wander the yard

I am an elderly woman
I am living with dementia
I go to the park to rip up the grass

Old Mill River
Covers the clover
A second is over
On an autumn day

I am the metal eraser
Some old picture of winter
Look at that kid-
Have you seen him before?

I am each and every morning
The real home video
What I see in my sleep
I see in memory more
