about

Thick indie rock exploring historical paranoia in the modern age and pathways to sidestep the damage.

lyrics

Set upon by satellites
Your need for speed has served you right
Your nickel-plated hope and star
Your candy-coated 2-inch scar
Might disagree with ways and means
Might charm the snakes that hold your knees

But now you see it, now you don’t
You bought a truck, to tote your rope
Why disagree?
Why do the math?
This opportunity is slipping past.

I see
I see what you see
I see the ways and means
But stay between
But stay between

Staring down the barrel
Of another holy man

It’s a hobo life for hobo Sam
He’s making quite a living on the hobo plan
He says, “If I die before I wake,
I pray the lord my soul to take

I see
I see what you see
I see the ways and means
But stay between
But stay between

I’ve been a pen slinger
In all these evil times
I’ll write about despots, robots
And Teapot Dome.

I check the time

I see
I see what you see
I see the ways and means
But stay between
But stay between

Halcyon is a poetic name for a Kingfisher. It is said that the floating nest of the Halcyon brings calm to the cruel sea. The Halcyon Brothers decorate the weight of the world in a charming and medicated disguise. The sound embraces with a clinched smile, and then stumbles and occasionally falls only to somehow prop itself back up for another round. ... more
