lyrics

Land Dweller third planet herb planting leaf to the seed sold on the street standing beats standing back behind a register trying to remember what they’re ordering for breakfast or dealing with a customer that had a bad day and takes it out on you just because you’re in the way minimum wage pay got you late on all your bills wide you could escape ‘cause lately stuck is what you feel custom wheels is busting out the TV but you bussing still plus the meal you eating don't leave nothing filled weekends full of work can test your will no time to testify to rest or build a lot of questions got you stressing never get revealed leaves you with a flustered feel your best is not enough it never was or will be so you peel blunts filthy and fill trees to feel free open up new possibilities you will be

Land dweller first world third planet its where you're at not where you're from so where I’m standing is many feet due east of the Willamette in the city of the bridges, good weed and entertainment roses, Voodoo Donuts, Jantzen Beach and fermentation a caucasian landed in the land of occupation landed in the borders of a sovereign nation once in hands of native populations now its Ronald Reagan economics 2nd generation Ron McDonald slaving occupation taxes raising no funding for space stations or for education theres a war thats waiting for some bullets for some bodies so we’re paying my homie in the army tote a shotty spray it human cost amazing people meeting makers Allah and God adults and babies man its crazy loosing out humanity and nothing can repay it fuck it

So let the wind flip pages wisdom of the sages visions of the ages its been a minute with these labors back breaking brick laying road paving takes patience my occupations necessitation is meditation visitation inspiration that ain’t vacation been more like slaving scraping praying ancient information contemplation so where you're staying and how you make ends don’t mean shit all that matters what you're saying how you say it if you mean it can you back it up when the task is tough had enough and love is leaving? When blunt ash is piling up on the kitchen table zig-zags a cut corner and amiss in label fifth of fatal computer speakers with the twisted cable twisting sipping ‘till unstable get a grip let knowledge save you and fly away when skies are grey devise and pray let the music play make the most of today and find a way
