Track Name: Skinhead Punk Goes to the Mississippi Delta
I can’t stand the buzzing of flies!

Swat them all and make a path (3x)

Through the swamps!



Insignificant cricket strings!

Screaming insignificance

They are insignificant

Fuck all the significance of their woes!



Hey boy, what you doin ‘round these parts?!



Don’t be comin’ ‘round by my porch light pissed from your choice to walk in the mud

You don’t know woe, and you don’t know sorrow.

Nor have you drunk the blood from a flood.

These callused hands could play for you pain, my split spine coiled around a broken heart



Work without pay, love without pay off

I’ve befriended notes from abandonment

Crying into singing, shaking into strumming

Each miserable day spent with soul-searching loudly



Insect lights, pits of stars

They are slivers of hope to me

One bent string, or cricket’s leg

They ease the suffering…



Hey, you’re actually a really great guy!

Thank you for enlightening

I needed enlightening (2x)

And to go a different way



So with shoebox and no shoes, let’s jam

I need to play the pain away (3x)

Heal my soul!



1 -2 -3 -4

Play the pain away! (3x)

Heal my soul!



Buzz with lights under the flies

Flood with sparks under the stars

Send the pain away (3x)

Heal my soul!
