about

Written by Joel Ludford

lyrics

Ghosts float over the interstate, interstale fog of purple and gold,
The ground breaks, streets start to crumble
We stumble as we make our way home
We follow the light of the sun,
An empty head is easily won
They grab us right where it counts,
So we march on and on, oooh

Base pay, that's all I'm asking for
Every door slams and it shuts in my face
The kids sit with no one to talk to them,
So instead they learn to speak with their guns
We follow the light of the sun,
An empty gut is easily won
They grab us right where it counts,
So we march on and on oooh

Bye bye beautiful baby,
Make the best of this new failin' world
The ground breaks, streets start to crumble,
We stumble as we make ourselves home
Base pay, that's all I'm askin' for
Every door slams and it shuts in my face
The kids sit with no one to talk to them
So instead they learn to speak with their guns

We follow the light of the sun
An empty heart is easily won
They grab us right where it counts
So we march on and on oooh

"Experiencing a Handmade Moments show is kind of like enjoying a spoonful of political discourse wrapped in local organic bacon and deep fried in hemp oil — and it’s all silky." - Nick Brothers, Free Weekly
