Against The Grain

Lyrics | Track Details

three thousand
miles of wilderness overcome by the flow, a lonely restitution of pavement,
pomp and show, I seek a thousand answers, I find but one or two, I
maintain no discomfiture, my path again renewed, against the grain,
that's where I'll stay, swimming upstream, I maintain against the grain,
here labelled as a lunatic, sequestered and content, there ignored and
defeated by the government, there's an oriented public who's magnetic
force does pull, but away from the potential of the individual, against the
grain..., the flow is getting stronger with smaller increments of time and
eddies of new ideas are increasingly hard to find, you need all that the
other has, it is your right to seize the day but in all your acquisitions you
will soon be swept away, against the grain..., there's a common
consensus and an uncomfortable cheer, a reverberating chorus that
anyone can hear, it sings "leave your cares behind you, just grab
tenaciously", this lulling sense or purpose will destroy us rapidly, against
the grain...
