THE IFS AND BUTS
(written 2013/recorded 2013)



bland is the night and stale is the day
would you row in a nutshell to cross the ocean
calloused are our hands and weary are our bones
would you cling to a paper plane to fly away

i falter, i demur
the ifs and buts take over
why jeopardize achievements
why break our necks and die

can’t make a silk purse from a sow’s ear
ooh and from an ox you will get nothing but its beef
calloused are our minds and weary are our souls
our rebellion turned into perpetuation

i falter, i demur
the ifs and buts take over
why jeopardize achievements
why break our necks and die
