Lyrics

Hattibagen McRat

Chorus: Hattibagen McRat All my friends call me Hat Hattibagen McRat How far can you travel without making tracks

Verse One: I left my friends and family in the dust late one night and headed up the coast for something new See my life felt awful tangled all around me I felt strangled by the weight of expectation on me to Now I’m walking down a highway with a sign saying goin’ my way hoping someone with a good hearts driving through And than a car pulled over slowly said god bless you sir you saved me my names Bean what do I have the pleasure of calling you

Chorus

Verse Two He said now where you headed I’m a traveling man myself I come from Nashville I’m a Dobro pickin man Ooo and I play sweet bluegrass music though it hasn’t brought me wealth it keeps my soul alive and keeps my spirit free I said that I was headed for the first town that looked good I had no commitments to the life I used to rule And than old Hatty chuckled softly said that his house was in the Rockies and I could stay for free just for a week or two

Chorus

Verse Three: Well we drove to Colorado going 80 miles an hour stopping only to relieve our human needs He started up a fire made a stew to eat for dinner than plucked his Dobro flat across his knees Now take this here guitar you see and pick them strings as fast as me and soon you’ll play sweet bluegrass like a king Well I strummed that thing both day and night and practiced my fingers died we only stopped to eat and got to sleep

Chorus

Honeyburste

Can you hear the sound around of the town where there’s people screaming out and there’s no one listening To get on through you need to prove there’s something new in what you do so they can choose if they want that happening Catch them creeping down the hall so they can peep into your stall to know that there above the law so start petitioning Wake up early kinda rushed making sure my teeth are brushed cause I cannot miss the bus and all the protesting

So take a trip on down with me my friend On the mountain high natural smoke up to the sky To the sea we fly speeding down the mountainside On the wind we float landing on a flying boat Plunging deep below watch the bubbles come and go Keep to open eyes free yourself expand your mind They can’t restrict your time in this perfect world of mine

When November comes at last and the votes have yet been cast we’ll just drop the price of gas a terror threatening Keep the masses on our side boost our people’s sense of pride a candy-coated sheet of lies to hide the murdering Blast our taxes to the sky as there status stacks grown high mute the poor let out a sigh too keep them wondering Can we blind the public eye make them think were doing right keep our puppets smiling bright while we run everything

So take a trip on down with me my friend On the mountain high natural smoke up to the sky To the sea we fly speeding down the mountainside On the wind we float landing on a flying boat Plunging deep below watch the bubbles come and go Keep to open eyes free yourself expand your mind They can’t restrict your time in this perfect world of mine

They think there doing something wise sending pawns to their demise to tell us how to live our lives a country crumbling Like thick molasses rolling by the fumes of oil chain the night when there’s no moon to spark the sky a thread unraveling Closing doors to clutter time branding waste to form a line keeping reason miles behind a mighty trampling Does it hurt to tell the truth its gonna sting you when you lose this fire’s burning ‘cause of you sweet karma’s crackling

So take a trip on down with me my friend On the mountain high natural smoke up to the sky To the sea we fly speeding down the mountainside On the wind we float landing on a flying boat Plunging deep below watch the bubbles come and go Keep to open eyes free yourself expand your mind They can’t restrict your time in this perfect world of mine (X2)

Subconscious Prelude

I’m turning and churning the thoughts in my head I’m twisting and wrapping the sheets in my bed Still no sleep is coming I cant seem to rest There’s something inside something I can’t contest It whirls through the wind like a small blade of grass Than lands in a creek with an invisible splash Than floats down the stream like a paper made raft On board is my nest my thought have not hatched

I don’t wanna say where I’m going now Choose to ignore all who tell me how My eyes keep closing why can’t I just rest my mind And replace all the rambles lost in time

There’s no use in trying to force out my sleep I’m done with the pushups and counting of sheep These thoughts are all good ones I wish I could keep To store in my head until next time we meet In time my future will reflect on my past My life is a series in a house made of glass The thoughts keep on churning how long will this last My sleep is an outlaw my body can’t catch

I don’t wanna say where I’m going now Choose to ignore all who tell me how My eyes keep closing why can’t I just rest my mind And replace all the rambles lost in time

When wishing my body would set itself free So all my subconscious could expand upon me And show me the things that the eye does not see A bold silver lion beneath a weeping old tree A gold plated sunrise in the middle of the day A hawk on the hunt with me as its prey I’m running I’m tripping I cant get away This cant be real I cant be awake

I don’t wanna say where I’m going now Choose to ignore all who tell me how My eyes keep closing why can’t I just rest my mind And replace all the rambles lost in time

When It Rains It Poors

You wake to greet the brand new day Look up realize you’re late Rush out to make your plane Can’t find your keys again The rent’s been due for weeks You need this gig to eat Your car starts to leak The engine’s really weak It won’t start up in time You try to find a ride The bills weren’t paid on time Your cell phone lost the line The problems wont go away They keep piling on your plate You just want to escape You need to re-awake

Awake now listen to the words I’m Saying in this line that your life will be just fine and Troubles do not stay they Get replaced with good times Now we got a great life Smile as you walk by Thinking about the Day

Its late your legs wont rest today Your body seems to ache Your mind will win the race Burning by your sleep again The light blooms from the sun The long dark night un-done Another day of fun Waiting for some luck to come You keep hoping for a day For things to go your way When all decisions have been made And karma’s finally found its way The drinks they pass the time They help you to unwind The guilt is killing you inside Your eyes they need to reawake

Awake now listen to the words I’m Saying in this line that your life will be just fine and Troubles do not stay they Get replaced with good times Now we got a great life Smile as you walk by Thinking about the Day

Its grey the rain pours down my face The tears become erased A cleansing of my fate Splashing down into my grin My eyes become alive A feeling left behind A hidden world untied Creating all you see today The clouds they went away Forever did I wait But karma found my plate Now Im smiling in the sun We’ll meet again someday You smile and than ill say When it rains it pours all day Until love can find its way

now listen to the words I’m Saying in this line that your life will be just fine and Troubles do not stay they Get replaced with good times Now we got a great life Smile as you walk by Thinking about the Day

Invisible Ink

Life is just one big game that you play and play and play And people make mistakes things you cant erase You’ve got to move on with your life and take is slow day by day Cause than you won’t be so amazed to figure out your own game

Don’t you wish you were a pencil so you could erase the shit you’ve done Go back and make the changes and control how your life’s run Cause people make mistakes and people do things that they shouldn’t have done Go back and make the changes and replace them with some fun

People aren’t all the same some are lame so strange and some are plain But there around you all the time so take a minute out of your day to drop someone a line They may be the next best thing in your life like maybe your husband or maybe your wife So don’t be a fool and make the mistake of walking by them like you’ve got nothing to say

Don’t you wish you were a pencil so you could erase the shit you’ve done Go back and make the changes and control how your life’s run Cause people make mistakes and people do things that they shouldn’t have done Go back and make the changes and replace them with some fun

Beethoven and Greene Wet slate scraping up against your sneaker bottom Kick a pebble watch it tumble down the road forgotten Having only what you have and having really nothing Makes an easier escape for those who do not listen Catch a train rolling fast without a destination The early morning sun is calling this must be your station Stepping off the dock the colors they all repositioned The grass was pink the trees were blue the sky to bright for vision

Your life was sold the road was cold you did not know if you could go around avoiding all your past doubts And even though you kept emotion overflowing without knowing where you’re going just wake up and hope When all your cares and dreams are sucked up like a bad disease you wait and see your future needs a little sunshine A better place to end your days when there’s no way to see the haze that makes you wanna pick up and go

A cool breeze makes you think about the situation Walking forwards moving backwards in a celebration Staring blankly at a gate that just won’t seem to open Beyond its doors there lie the beaches of a golden ocean Puff a cloud of dust starts spelling out the combination Pick up a rock give it a knock and say the incantation Twiddle hitch jiggle joggle jump squirm stir toss trifle dabble doodle you must relax and dream

Piddle fuddle babble gabble wiggle ramble fumble laze piddle fiddle enter Beethoven and Greene

Your life was sold the road was cold you did not know if you could go around avoiding all your past doubts And even though you kept emotion overflowing without knowing where you’re going just wake up and hope When all your cares and dreams are sucked up like a bad disease you wait and see your future needs a little sunshine A better place to end your days when there’s no way to see the haze that makes you wanna pick up and go

The giant gait starts melting and evaporating The purple smoke begins to choke your mental state of being You start to tingle as your body moves without permission You feel your mind at ease alive and free from there submission And than you gain control and walk up passed the marble wall The frowning fountain in the mountain isn’t far at all. Dodging danger like a bouncing ball Up through the rocks you see the spot in which the water falls

Somewhere on the mountain It’s said that there’s a potion That makes you truly happy And infinite in wisdom It make you shine as bright as the sun do shine Keep you life doing right and your mind being kind If your heart is true and your heart is pure than this wont undue The potion will endure in you (X3)

A bead of sweat splashes down to break your concentration The water first will kill your thirst than fill your soul vibration You reach the fountain and you notice there’s a bottle floating Just pop the top and drink it up to start the potion flowing Inside the water falling something shiny starts moving Like once before you see a door appear and start to open Inside the door you see a life that kept you scared and running Step on in let out a grin the potion started working

Your life was sold the road was cold you did not know if you could go around avoiding all your past doubts And even though you kept emotion overflowing without knowing where you’re going just wake up and hope When all your cares and dreams are sucked up like a bad disease you wait and see your future needs a little sunshine A better place to end your days when there’s no way to see the haze that makes you wanna pick up and go

Somewhere on the mountain It’s said that there’s a potion That makes you truly happy And infinite in wisdom It make you shine as bright as the sun do shine Keep you life doing right and your mind being kind If your heart is true and your heart is pure than this wont undue The potion will endure in you (X2)

Bronze Fingers

Open up the window let the air bring in the music of your world See the birds they Tango as you hear their songs unfold above the earth Its a mystical morning let your hair enjoy the freedom it disserves It’s an outer reflection or an inner connection judging seemingly reversed

And time goes on and on and on it seems like just a year ago that I left home And though I’ve learned some things I feel as though I’m still the same 18- year-old just 23 with all the same ideas and dreams come on now start the show Let the music take you to a place you haven’t gone before And on it rolls tumbling faster to the sound of clouds colliding with your soul ooooohhhh

A silhouette unraveled by the peaking moonlight trapping tree top frames Twist with the wind and travel trust your white light burning brightly for the day When a gut reaction strikes a fit of passion trust the one thing left to save Call my inner lion grab a bit of pride and strut my stuff out on the plain with your soul ooooohhhh

A winding ship untangled shredding through the waves against the angry storm A determination or my imagination justifying dreams unborn It’s my humiliation of the realization time keeps walking through the door Instead ill keep on moving find my inner groove and let chance show me what I’m worth

And time goes on and on and on it seems like just a year ago that I left home And though I’ve learned some things I feel as though I’m still the same 18- year-old just 23 with all the same ideas and dreams come on now start the show Let the music take you to a place you haven’t gone before And on it rolls tumbling faster to the sound of clouds colliding with your soul ooooohhhh

Daydream Farmer

I like it when the sun shines as I’m stepping out to start my waking day I hear the bacon sizzling smells that throw me back into my memory I tend to daydream constantly cause reality is far to dull for me It seems that all the caring giving loving and livin could work against the grain

I can’t stop the sky from falling down It’s the energy inside of me floating about Live to love and let go while were still around Keep our earth in your soul and your sole to the ground

I’d like to think that all my life I’ve been in sync with my ability’s It goes to show no matter how you look at life you learn from it’s heartache It seems compassion could be the best reaction if we only spoke one language and screamed out love and peace This place is screaming while we all just keep ignoring all the signs that we’ve been given to change are ugly ways

I can’t stop the sky from falling down It’s the energy inside of me floating about Live to love and let go while were still around Keep our earth in your soul and your sole to the ground

I shut my eyes to try and stop the chaos building deep within my brain I crave creation to find my satisfaction all the while were reacting to my inability One mind can hinder all the love we have left over filled with negative injustice burning hate into our names My own solution is to block out the pollution trust my instinct as a human just sit back relax and dream

I can’t stop the sky from falling down It’s the energy inside of me floating about Live to love and let go while were still around Keep our earth in your soul and your sole to the ground
