Buck 04:29 video
Nix Zilch Nil Zero None Zip Just nothing No thoughts of our own No clothes on the bone No prejudice, nor hate No color wars Irate It's a world we can't recall Those first moments of our days Just a spacious open canvas Tainted by our poppa's ways (Chorus) Nix Zilch Nil Zero None Zip Just nothing Just buck Stained present by the past Strained shaping of tomorrow Perceptions that will last (Chorus) Our ways become our luggage That we carry our whole life We pass it to our children It becomes their future strife Stained present by the past Strained shaping of tomorrow Perceptions that will last It's their futuristic sorrow…

You met me in the darkness You met me in the night To bring me to the light My shadow was resistant to give me back my sight Come to our land The butterflies Dart through my hands Reach out and touch the light You met me in the darkness You saw me in my night You met me in the darkness You met me in the night Met me there so I could see the light Bring me to the day Bring me to the light Bring me to the day Keep me in the light

Do they hear it up in Humboldt? Darker than a thunderbolt Or down in New Orleans Slicker than a holy ghost... This thing's inside my head Is aching Memories stirred Confidence shaking Will I die young? (The Humbling Hum) Where does it come from? (The Humbling Hum)

Broken 04:17 video
Yeah, my dad was the king of the backroads Still is So many trees passing us by So much silence What is there to say when you're alone? Sometimes you are alone And there is a person sitting right there Next to you She came into my life Like a light She could walk the fine lines of the cracks in my heart Her naked feet stepped through the halls of my cavernous soul There are roads that lead to goddess And there are windows waiting to be broken open… They try to break the rind Believing they might find A bite of fruit so kind It could dissolve their insecurity But at the generous core A liquid spirit roars So fierce, and true, and sweet It tears the bag And rots their teeth Remember that old stretch of road we would speed down Flying over the railroad tracks Having the cops chase us down Throwing us in the back of their cars Blood grows quicker through veins You pull me closer, lover Pull me out of my shame You lift the light, sugar You break open the frame You lift the light, sugar You break open the frame La la, la la la la, la la La la, la la la la, la la

The wind came up The other day On a planet not like ours Lake alkali lightning strikes Ashes rise Looking I've been looking for you The wind came up It blew your name (I've been listening) So far away And on that shore Where gods reside There, you will find me waiting...
