lyrics

Be kind, be mindful, behind you lie
The bridges and tunnels you've crossed
Your fair-weather friends may wish to defend
The ones they've got left at all costs
Be kind, be mindful, behind you lie
The bodies that lie in your wake
And if their neck's broke, just light up their smoke
And offer a warm piece of cake

Crooks will convene back in the alley
Neighbors may seem just plain underwhelmed
If you don't mean what you are saying
Won't you please just speak for yourself

Be kind, be mindful, inside you lies
A hibernating heart
You wake up, you go, you put on a show,
You leave, you turn off, you restart
Be kind, be mindful, rewind and play
Find your good deeds have no rewards
Philanthropy means if nobody sees
You don't stop if no one records

Evidence seen under inspection
Always succeeds in making a swell
If you don't mean what you are saying
Won't you please just speak for yourself

The accountant cooks the books, the bookies go to sleep
The schemers are dreaming of sheep
The sheep meet the butcher, the butcher shears the meat and
The goods go for over value on the street, so...

Paul was the primary songwriter for The Record Company (2008), the live bassist for the now-dormant Son Abrenoc (2012), and currently serves on low end for Sugarskull Piledriver?! He waits until he gets the itch to track something, with little regard for aural continuity. ... more
