Beast in the garden I’ll think of you – covered in ribbons I’ll think of you but I’ll take a part of it oh just a little bit everyone wants their control.
Fisherman passing the buck to the farm hand jumping concerns over backbones and benchmarks and speedbumps and telephones are on their way out.
Please don’t make me buy new shoes this year please don’t make me buy new sneakers this year.

You were right, the voice of the cars on the road next to mine to remind me of things that I burned in my skin how a boy makes decisions and bases them all on lies

Baby got a balloon gonna take it to the top of the stairs said baby’s got a balloon gonna take it to the top of the stairs who comes to parties said all dressed up like that you a hero with real gold inside your hands
Show her what she wants
Show her what she wants
Show her what she wants
She wants it all
She wants it all
Cops are the killers and hospitals never close eyes are like pissing in puddles the smallest of backs I won’t turn my head your boat has left and now your mates are dead you get in the car drive as far as the city goes.

40 hawks to guide my way per mile
And if she’s drunk on Alcohol and smiles

Age is on you and it’s no one but you.

    General Commenti love how the lyrics are almost like their own instrument, almost uncoherent when listenning. it's not like it's easy to interpret them anyway.

    General Commenti took this off their myspace:

    "peace to the god's"
    this is actually an old Kool Moe Dee song that Marc restyled into a rock epic. it's like The Who's "Tommy", but with less tights and more arpeggio piano lines. this was a favorite to play live. marc would fall down sometimes. marc fell down alot actually.

    I think most of it is a joke, but "beasts in the garden" = "peace to the gods"

    General CommentI took the title to mean old, powerful white guys with fifty dollar bills... the part of the crowd that pushes you to make decisions based on their lies.
    "Please don't make me buy new shoes this year"
    "Show her what she wants, she wants it all"

    You can fall for their bullshit motives or realize everyone is fucking each other over to save time that doesn't even have to matter...
    "Age is on you and it’s no one but you."

    That probably made as much sense as the song itself does to most people, haha...
