From the recording Avalanche

Lyrics

Pulling at my heartstrings like a marionette.
Now I remember what it is that I forget.
It’s how to live and use my own head she said
To learn what it means to be alive from the dead

Take What You Need And Leave The Rest Behind

Conformity is rewarded
I don’t need a disclaimer to tell you how I feel
That’s how the old story goes
When we live to feed our own egos

Take What You Need And Leave The Rest Behind
Take What You Need And Leave The Rest Behind

We used to light candles and sit in the dark.
Stare into the fire and watch the ambers spark
Talk about peaks, valleys and such great heights
Talk about the great depression, war and the civil rights.

Hold On, Hold On
Keep holding on. Don’t let go
All is not lost. Don’t let go
Throw it back and the seed will grow
She’s says my favourite colour is yellow but I’m brave
little girl.
Stronger then a thousand men. I stay alive when nobody says I can

There is no home where the buffalo used to roamed
It’s been excavated by oil drum syndrome
Hand me down my silver trumpet
Man, we should have left the land the way we found it

Take What You Need And Leave The Rest Behind
Take What You Need And Leave The Rest Behind

One giant step forward never seems to lasts.
So accustomed to blaming others for the past.
Our signals crash, police and thieves clash
One more person beat down for their gender or class.

Take What You Need And Leave The Rest Behind
Take What You Need And Leave The Rest Behind
Take What You Need And Leave The Rest Behind
Take What You Need And Leave The Rest Behind
