Hatch 03:12
Don't wait until the parcel come - delivery Crack expectation against your will - keep unclipped wings How long can you live in comfort comfortably? Don't let it be forgotten We have all been Born uncaged Hatched to fly free Sharpen your beak and carve your own skeleton key To unlock calcium or steel doors and find release It’s a long drop from the nest, you poor fledgling But vertigo of staying Is far more draining Than greeting Earth Hatch to fly free What colors will your plumage show? There is no end point on a globe Love but leave the embryo Skin your knees Welcome to your first landing Now you're standing On stronger legs Hatched to fly All lyrics copyright Matthew C. Brown 2013
Myth 04:28
Skip a stone toward the sun And land in fire – no rains will come Poison harbors no life nor love Aphrodite Celibate Skip a stone the other way And land where life [has] lost count of days Ancient dust blows; core has cooled Aries signed a treaty Don’t you wish that we could go Faster than Apollo Burning across the sky We could outrun him And escape time’s dungeon and… Submit to reason and Return to being What we’re used to seeing as wild (Sorry. We’re wild.) Witness Pan before he dies Leave the stone untouched and see A glimpse of how life [is] meant to be Out of nine there’s only one Stone for us around this sun See into our stone’s seas See what we once were See what we may be Neptune [is] coming up for air All lyrics copyright Matthew C. Brown 2013
Paraffin people don't take too much to melt down A paraffin patience plague is going around Candle-girl is burning with barely a spark to ignite Too bad her flame can't warm or make light You've passed it down These jeans aren't denim at all Sewn by short fuses I was born under a moon of wax Brittle when solid so handle with care if you must Cool water language or else she'll combust All lyrics copyright Matthew C. Brown 2013
These hands have held weary breath of struggling brand new life These hands have felt hands that feel the sun for their first time These hands have let go and felt the great reward These hands have held not the power to ignore Concrete hands’ submission Blind to indecision’s shades of grey These hands have held nails upright and swung the hammer down These hands have felt altruism’s building blocks of doubt These hands have felt no difference from black to white These hands have held interference wrong or right These hands can’t see other hands undoing all they’ve done These hands have felt tension clenching knuckles white All lyrics copyright Matthew C. Brown 2013
