about

These songs were written during a dark period of desolation and isolation. They are bitter, gleaming fortresses jutting spitefully into the world. Plus, they're fun for the whole family.

Track Name: Down The Pipe
I'm looking down on the grids
Looking down on the game
How the building walls hide
All the zombies inside with their eyes glazed
I arise eyes ablaze

Others said they thought it best
Best if I work on my own
So yes, I spend a lot of time alone
In a blue Nomex jumpsuit
White noise of the engine drone
This design is my own
Built to carry two souls

Rise in the night
You can see by my flashlight beam
Can't deny it's my flying machine
So put that in the hat
that you wore when you called it
a loser's pipe dream
Cause I'm taking you down the pipe with me
I'm taking you down the pipe with me

Arms reaching in every side
Everyone wants to take your seat
Beat them back, throw the latch
Sorry there's just no spare air
Hold on as I turn the key
As I'm taking you down the pipe with me
I'm taking you down the pipe with me

I'm looking down on the flames from suborbital space
As I try not to think of what's gone
Just the future
And I see the future in your face
As I'm taking you down the pipe with me
Though we may not be alive to see
I'm taking you down the pipe with me
