lyrics

Change is comin' around the bend
A shotgun wedding and a story penned
About a bishop who gave up his soul
To feed a girl from the finger bowl

Next time you step up for the intinction,
Remember most the great distinction
Between your life and stories told
About the deeds that made you old

Oh, shatter me, sweep me up into your hands
Then scatter me with the seeds upon your lands
Oh, burn me down, let me wear your golden crown
So when I meet St. Peter I don't let you down

I'm rich in heart but poor at prose,
Can teach you to rhyme but nobody grows
A slap in the mouth and a push off a cliff
Sit on the sea and let yourself drift

Break my grief and pull me out
Of a heartbreak hole but leave some doubt
About the good that you can do for me
They say in life ain't nothin' free

Oh, shatter me, sweep me up into your hands
Then scatter me with the seeds upon your lands
Oh, burn me down, let me wear your golden crown
So when I meet St. Peter I don't let you down

Lend me a quarter, I can teach you a rhyme
About three nickels and a shiny dime
Break me a dollar, I can give you a clue
About the change comin' back to you

A different ending has begun to show
So choose your adventure and let me know
Which way to rock and which way to roll
Who keeps the gate where I'll pay the toll

Fresh limbo squeeze and a pull from the side
Mopped in a corner with a surly divide,
Nowhere to go, not invited to stay
Poetic license fades into grey

Oh, shatter me, sweep me up into your hands
Then scatter me with the seeds upon your lands
Oh, burn me down, let me wear your golden crown
So when I meet St. Peter I don't let you down

about

The Hollows Brooklyn, New York

A contradictory, harmonic melting pot that takes all its roots, twists them around, and produces something else; something new. With no frontman (or six frontmen), the result is a veritable junkyard of instruments and musical personalities, a carnival on wheels, a one-man band in six bodies that owns the stage with all the mobile, rhythmic ease of a seasoned railroad gang. ... more
