off the album 'MAN OVERBOARD'
This collection of sketches
Theres entropy yet work, but mostly it happened by accident
and for it to make dollars I would have to be something I despise,
every morning i salute the flag, turn, grab the fingers of my left hand behind my back and continue my search.
Who besides me is responsible?
Now I dont have it in me to fuss over much,
What remains of my violence is so precious that i keep it all of it to myself.
so i'm guided more and more by vibes,
I figure I'll write my book when its all I can do but I don't know,
ya, i come in contact with the odd scavenger here and there, but those encounters rarely amount to much
I remember the gold rush
the monuments will remain, and thats all that matters but the question alwyas becomes......'Am I happy?'

when we grow old, for woman in general,
yet strives for what can never be,
but the more the pain grows, the more this instinct for life somehow asserts itself,
only later will it varify itself as not coherant
Continues into part 2 of the song....
