Acoustic version of our old favorite "Waltz of the Chupacabra"


Something dammed my stream of consciousness, I'm only getting a few drops out at a time...
You'd think by now they could have bottled some for sale
In grocery lines across the USA

And all I see clearly are insides of eyelids
I'm nursing a break in a heart that's not there
I long to feel anything other than my confusion
I'm trapped in a silent, lucid nightmare

I wake up...
The only things I feel inside are fault lines shifting
The clock is ticking, the lights are flipping themselves on and off -
The walls inside my memory I can hear my father
He says "keep at this!," I ask "why bother?"
The ones who make it out alive, it seems, are far and few
The rest of us, we just have to make due.

Prison cell apartment walls, they lock away unfinished dreams
That may never see the light of day again now...
Shadows of reality and a life of mediocrity, they usher in a stagnation
