lyrics

The human condition, getting tough to fish in
compete to complete in whatever place.
Frictions and angles spirit wants free
then they strike and strike with a mighty mace

Every free floating us garner youth and trust
Fear then rage on an infinity stage
Own them, take them, make their armor rust
we are us, we are us

Taking is what we revel in
Change at all and ripped skin, sin from sin
lust of greed, fear wrapped need, it's sad and got to end,
in cosmic revel keep all (as) friends.

Live as you like as long as you don't hurt no being
there's just no need
live long as you like, just don't hurt no being
there's justice freed
Wars never own up to much, centuries long forgotten
it's yours, then mine, then theirs.
scene unfolds as death takes the lot then
it all ends you will lose it, just caught unawares.

Taking is what we revel in
Change at all and ripped skin, sin from sin
lust of greed, fear wrapped need, it's sad and got to end,
in cosmic revel keep all (as) friends.

"Fake it til you make it" is hard, but you'll make it if you try,
shift to pleasant, graft as intelligent.
"Fake it till you make it" is hard but you'll make it if you try
shift to pleasant, graft as intelligent.

Change at all and ripped skin, sin from sin
lust of greed, fear wrapped need, it's sad and got to end,
in cosmic revel keep all friends.

about

Backwater Opera Denton, Texas

"Backwater Opera [is] a group that stitches the sound of bluegrass music into a classical indie-rock tapestry. It's an aesthetic the band [has called] 'Chambergrass'...With songs ranging from sorrowful to blisteringly introspective, and vocal harmonies sweet enough to melt even the harshest capital pacific northwest ice, this band is one to keep in mind and on the playlist." -Eugene Weekly ... more
