lyrics

What’s the cure for futility,
the human condition,
the non-stop need to need?

And why can’t I define satisfied?
Why’s it always the pursuit of more
that navigates my life?

We all aspire to the brilliant stars.
But the world is the ball on the chain
weighing down our hearts.

I want to take my foot off with a hacksaw.

I’m so tired of drifting afloat
on this brittle raft made of scrap-wood
that we call “Hope.”
‘Cause we can’t survive
on pacifying, Prozac-laced salt water
when we thirst for divine wine.

So we all aspire to the brilliant stars.
But the world is the ball on the chain
weighing down our hearts.

I want to take my foot off with a hacksaw.

My body is my cross to bear.
It can’t attain desire’s reach.
My only chance to catch the stars
is the hacksaw.

"This is a newer band made up of OG punk/hardcore kids from Texas. They put on a super energetic and interactive live show, thanks to their insane singer. Really fun to watch, and a great homage to the punk/DIY scene from ten years ago. They’re just getting started and already doing a bunch of rad stuff." - Sarah Saturday (Warped Tour Booking Agent) ... more
