Studio in the Country, Bogalusa, LA


Verse 1
It is raining in the south
taste of oil in my mouth
been smellin it for days
and the tide is cashing in
all that dirt we're diggin in
we wagered in a craze

and the puddle gets bigger
not little by little
i'm telling you it grows
and the sea gets thicker
and your heart beats quicker
and everybody knows
everybody knows

that there is one patch of sky
the needle of its eye
you only see it when it rains
and there's a single spot of sea
touched the greed of you and me
you only see it cuz it's gone

and the birds of a feather
they're all stuck together
they can't fly away
you say it's not here in my way
i can go about my day
it'll all be okay
if it's not here in my mind
i can leave it far behind

verse 2:
now the clouds are rollin in
let the hurricane begin
don't stand there in a daze

The Shiz is hellbent on putting meaning back in the mainstream, and they do so with a compelling transparency and with hearts thumping hard in their chests - Unexpectedly stirring, and a damned good time. ... more
