Shortcut To Hell

(Karlo Čavlović)

In the modern world of today, our leaders are set on a pedestal, we look at them as some sort of special and unique people, which, most of the time, they aren't. They lead us down a path of self-destruction and misery.

Those in who we believe Make us think that we're free But they won't let us see That it's only a dream Freedom isn't a choice And we only rejoice When the empires fall And fire goes through their gold Like acid through bone We kneel in their shadows And we bow to their souls We see them as angels But they're no more than ghosts The words of the liars And the prophets of death The way that they lead us Is a shortcut to hell Leading us like we're sheep Through the deserts and seas While we tear at the seams The liars stay in their keeps Freedom isn't a choice And we only rejoice XXXX XXX XXXXXXXX XXXXX XXX XXX XXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX X XXX XX XXXXX XX XXXXX XXXXXXX XXX XX XXX XX XXXXX XXXXX XX XXX XXXX XX XXXXXX XXX XXXXXXX XX XXXX XXXX XXXXXX XXX XXXXX XX XXX XXXXX XXX XXX XXXXXXXX XX XXXXX XXX XXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XX XX X XXXXXXXX XX XXXX

Bedsheets & Brooms

By Steven LaFollette

When I was in my early 20s, a friend of mine had this weird inclination to build a fort in our apartment. So, as grown men, we grabbed everything we could find and propped this thing up in the majority of our living room. When we weren't destroying the apartment, we would spend every night we could in the city. We had our spots like every does. We didn't know it, but in a matter of years some of us would be out of state, and none of our lives would look at all similar to that moment. Something about what we built together in our living room, and the network of places we enjoyed has always stuck with me. The places don't feel the same when I drive by them, but there's that sense of joy and longing that sit with me in that moment. This song is a farewell to a life stage I know better than to try to relive, a promise to be there for those who were with me at that time. This is personal of course, but I think we've all got a version of this. My best friend had me sing this for him and his wife on their wedding day and it's never meant more than it did in that moment.
