about

This is going to be a little side pocket where I stash stuff I'm working on in advance of the next full length disc. Some stuff might get lifted later to be part of - well, something I consider a record, and some stuff will probably have a permanent home in the grist camp.

Track Name: Becoming the Monster
I was scared of becoming the monster but I
was more scared of dying under his thumb.
And I ain't no revolutionary,
just doing what my sister should've done.
For every daughter buried early,
may it visit upon your sons.
I was scared of becoming the monster until I
saw you making kingdom come.

First they taught me you could not tame this violence
with any kind of love.
Then they taught me not to wait on heaven,
at least not they heaven they had coming.
Then they taught me how to bury a sister
let out in the sun.
Then I learned to make the chemical bath that they had made
and I said alright, now. I think I've learned enough.

I just think I lost my fear and it moves me, now, like heaven help us, boy.
I just think I lost my fear and it moves me, now, like heaven help us, boy.
I just think I lost.
I just think I lost.
I just think I lost.
(and I go, and I go where my mother has gone)
