about

This song reflects on the frustrations of witnessing the struggle of youth in today's society. It is an escape for those who feel the same uneasiness when thinking about children or young adults that are learning to live in the world today. Sometimes a problem feels too large to do anything about except write a song, a poem, create art, or run away completely to a better place.

From upcoming sophomore EP "Don't Wait"

lyrics

Hey little boy
do you even know
what your daddy does
when he goes to work?

Hey little girl
do you understand
that the things you cry for
were made by younger hands?

Sooner than later
hope that you will see
that things are not quite
what they seem
So quit your cryin' games
for acquiring things
Open up your eyes
you ungrateful little shits
All this nonsense
day-in and day-out
breaks my heart
and sends me

Runnin' to the woods
Runnin' to the woods
I'm goin' for the kill
Dance until we forget

We're broker than
we've ever been
But to happiness
no correlation

Cause the less we have
the more we love
and the more we love
the less that we will want

But the kids these days
don't know these things
they just walk around
with their heads glued
to a screen
while the world sits
at their fingertips
But they only know
how to be useless
All this nonsense
day-in and day-out
breaks my heart
and sends me

Runnin' to the woods
Runnin' to the woods
I'm goin' for the kill
Dance until we forget

How does that cat
have your tongue
when he's right there
on the windowsill
I wanna hear you
I'm tryin'
I wanna reach you
But every time I'm near you
You send me

Runnin' to the woods
Runnin' to the woods
I'm goin' for the kill
Dance until we forget
