Rock & Roll and Poetry are long departed siblings. Melody is the vehicle that carries them home to kick the shit out of whoever made them leave in the first place. Walcott thinks it's really funny to just gather round and watch the beating.

Lyrics

Swallow The Ghost

Written By: Hunter Morris

Talk about me,
Fire your guns if you're able
Seems to me a battle of
A horse who runs and a mule in the stable
The stump he sheds sappy tears
Cause he remembers when he was just a seed
You sip with joy the palatable poison, don't be annoyed, boy,
You write your own creed

The roach can stand tall
But dead bugs don't crawl
And some things are nothing at all
You sleepwalking coaster
Your death is your boast
And that's no way to swallow the ghost
That's no way to swallow the ghost

Seems like yesterday
We dreamed of tomorrow
We spoke in drunken tongues
And we sung of drunken dreams
That we'd follow
Dog eats dog while the rats gnaw
Dog eats dog dead
While the rats in your head gnaw

The roach can stand tall
But dead bugs don't crawl
And some things are nothing at all
You sleepwalking coaster
Your death is your boast
And that's no way to swallow the
ghost
That's no way to swallow the ghost

The wealthiest man wears a robe sewn from hand-me-downs
And the world's true riches
Are wholly of the soul, wholly of the soul
It never occured to me
To swim away and let you drown
When you scream underwater
The pain makes no sound
Listen to the pain make no sound

Ode To Brain

Written By: Hunter Morris

Guilty pleasures take me
So far from my father
Somebody please help me
Learn how to moderate

My brain's a hungry freak
But I don't let him eat me
I wonder if he'll starve before I die

My brain's a dark freak
But I don't let him beat me
Cause it's my time to shine

If something was wrong with me
If I swallowed some cancer
You'd all still be faceless men
At the one giant masquerade

I love my brain
Hope he never defeats me
He's got no eyes, but he ain't blind

I know he's strange
But I need him to complete me
He's got no eyes, he's got no eyes
So tell me how the hell is he crying?

My brain's a hungry freak
But I don't let him eat me
I wonder if he'll starve before I die

My brain's a dark freak
But I don't let him beat me
Cause it's my time to shine
