about

On 7/3/15, John Elliott rode a bus for 2 hours. During that time an email exchange happened between myself (Dylan Wise) and John Elliott. Those emails were turned into these songs over the course of about an hour.

Track Name: Little Bighorn
Walking away from you was the best thing I could do
Cause your star is falling quickly
On the porch you said to me "all of life is a mystery"
But I know one thing to be true

I know you drive a Jetta so I think you'll be just fine

Joseph Marshall wrote the book, a revisionist history
During reconstruction we kicked the natives out
Later on when you tell your friends say I was like the Indians
You pushed me out, cause you needed room to grow

I know you drive a Jetta so I think you'll be just fine

Oh no! Your wish came true
You're all alone, with nothing to lose
And though it seems like a win, but then again
You're a one-woman tribe, stuck on that reservation

I know you drive a Jetta so I think you'll be just fine
Track Name: A Real Song
All of my bullies from Junior High
Turned into racist homophobes
I learned all of that from Facebook the other day
And a girl that I used to have a crush on
Turns out that she is a lesbian, I guess she always was one
But now she's out

I wish that I could go back knowing what I know now
Everything I know now
Track Name: GRUNGE
Neil Young invented grunge, he was from Canada
Like Geddy Lee, RIP Geddy Lee
I don't know if he's actually dead
He just seems like someone who probably is
Today Tom Sawyer is resting peacfully

RIP Geddy Lee
RIP G R U N G E

Neil Young invented grunge, then he invented the PONO
Well I don't know if he actually built it
I think it was just his idea
I can't imagine Neil Young soldering, the grunge king soldering

RIP Geddy Lee
RIP G R U N G E
Track Name: Rail & Road
This land is your land, this land is my land
From California to the New York islands
But I can't be independent without

It's sad to know
There is no gold
No trees to grow
Just road

This land is your land, this land is my land
From California to the New York islands
It's blatant that we paved it
It's a mass grave for the past

It's sad to know
There is no gold
No trees to grow
Just road

Rail & Road
Track Name: Kill Em All
They're gonna kill us all if we let em
They have guns and bombs and dogs
No need to put on the red light
It's forever green, they're going to catch us

They are men, with guns, in costumes
But we're men too
