"Goats On A Boat" as written by and Michael Hranica Daniel Williams....
Whatever happened to the integrity found within a family?
I return your glare
And my bones are chilled with some sort of
Sickening recipe of fear and anger.

Day by day, time after time again
You distort chronology, you foster of terror
Bury your diamonds, destroy your rubies
We are searching for security in tradegy

Look around and notice the black (tapestries) drowning (our walls of) simplicity
We are the constant decay
Each note will disintegrate

Perched upon our towers, motionless and miserable
Here's to a comfortable casket
How deceiving is the cemetery of motivation
I wish to write a conclusion

    General CommentI agree with law187. This is the opening to a tragedy. I find this song to be a picture of society today. Many families have fallen apart. Divorce is an everyday occurence. The integrity and love we have lost sickens those who hold these things dear.
    Then some advice. "Bury your diamonds, Destroy your Rubies"
    What is materialism? "the philosophical theory that regards matter and its motions as constituting the universe, and all phenomena, including those of mind, as due to material agencies. "
    Precious goods have replaced the place that god held in our lives. We now worship the almighty diamond instead of the almighty lover, creator, and savior.
    Society is disintegrating, we are miserable. That is true. When i found jesus, my life changed. When i held my material possessions above all, i was unhappy, depressed, and could never have enough of anything.

    "I wish to write a conclusion"
    I see this pertaining to the entire CD.
    If this cd was written to make these things apparent and make people think, this would be a wonderful conclusion. The opening of man kinds eyes.

    General Commentgreat opener to a great cd, i guess the song titles like parodying the movie snakes on a plane, not sure what the songs actually about, in the beggining kind of sounds almost like referring to abusive parents?

    General Commenti dunno if theres in connection, but in like ancient greek times "tragedy" was associated with "the song of the goat", the song seems to be about a tragedy, along wit the title, seems possible
