lyrics

My misbegotten
So soon forgotten
When bones are rotten
Who pays?
The beating starts to quicken
Our blood begins to thicken
A peckish game of chicken
These days

Put down a slug of yellow
The harsh begins to mellow
An ordinary fellow
You'll see
But far beyond the chasm
There's less enthusiasm
To counteract the spasm
As me

Broken down by the light of the day
Open ground, where I'm bound to decay

Here in the dark
Shadows awaken
Bones sharp and shaking
For the next shot
Here in the dark
Spirits descending
Lyrically trending
Toward that blind spot

What happens to our vision
While making this incision
Is some infirm collision
With the id life
Let's talk degeneration
Let's deepen the flirtation
Abhorrent consecration
Of the old strife

Broken down by the light of the day
Open ground, where I'm bound to decay

Here in the dark
Shadows awaken
Bones sharp and shaking
For the next shot
Here in the dark
Spirits descending
Lyrically trending
Toward that blind spot

Say yes, say yes I do not know
Our best is but a hollow show
Oh no, oh no I must confess
My hazard's nothing but a guess

Here in the dark
Shadows awaken
Bones sharp and shaking
For the next shot
Here in the dark
Spirits descending
Lyrically trending
Toward that blind spot

about

Mount Pressmore Austin, Texas

Mount Pressmore makes music that crosses cultures and transcends categories. It’s Herbie Hancock meeting Peter Gabriel in a Danny Elfman film score. It’s a comedy, for sure, but one that balances social satire with self-examination.
