What Is Real
(warning! this is live and might not be exact) ha!

There is not a good reason why I should let go
Of what is bothering me

Just a parasitic tick a tick you would like to burn off
The blood still poisons me

Even though I’m small
My big idea is tall
In uncomplicated lines I tell you how I feel

Without a care or thought in structure we get caught
Help me while I suffer
What is really real?

What is real?
Tell me, Tell me
How you feel
Touch me. Hold me.
Soothe me. Warm me.
Help me. Control me.
What is Real?
(warning! this is live and might not be exact) ha!

I need to make a change but
My brain stays the same
Could you start by killing me

These feelings, Swelling,growing, feeding
Keep the pain where I stick

The air is thick and full
My head is caving in
My feelings overwhelmed
My blood is getting thin

I’m lifting off my hat to cool my dreams of hate
Fuel for my illusion
What is really real?


from This Is Real - Live At Post Road Tavern, released July 25, 2013
