Grandpa Herbert

What he left behind. How I had to find things out for myself.

Chorus He loved to a certain degree Mostly seemed to behave A lot in a Hitler fashion So, when he got involved, with my existence My knowledge later, didn't surprise me In the least verse 1 I loved my grandfather Don't get me wrong If I could've gotten The whole truth from him Rather then whom he left behind To hear the explanation from It would've helped chorus verse 2 He was a difficult man Lived according to The precise rules Of his estate And, everything connected to it Exactly It was all he truly loved chorus verse 3 So, when i was offered his lands, my mother's lands,my other grandfather's lands I turned them down XXX X XXX XXX XXXX XXXX X XXXXXXXX XXXXX XXXX XXXX XXXXX XXXXXXXXXXXX XXXXX XXXXX XX XXX XXXX XXXXXXX XX XXXXXX XXX XX XXXXXXXX XX XXXX XXXXXX XX XXXXX XXXX XXXX XXX XXXX XXXX XXXXX XXX XXXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXXX XXXXX XXX XXXXX XXX XXXXXXXX XXXXXX XXX XXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXX XXXXX XXX XXXXX XXXXXX XXXX XXXX XXXXX XXXX XXXXX XX XX XX XXXXXX XXX

Don't Hurry, I'm Still Drowning

By Hayden Coil


As the title suggests, a song of intense depression pessimism, but one that eventually steps out of it's languid but necessary pace to search for meaning to existing, to carrying on without the one who is no more. It's about the necessity of this person's particular trial in order to eventually wade his way out of it victorious and carefree. To learn to live a peace in the haunt of death and to learn to love again is the point and attempt of this material. It's an exorcism of doubt and depravity and a catapult into someplace less moodily ambiguous. I hope you can make the tough slog through the material, and my heart, and find something inspiring in it by the end, as I know I have.
