aka Material Things

Is it much to admit I need
A solid soul and the blood I bleed
With a little girl, and by my spouse
I only want a proper house

I don't care for fancy things
Or to take part in a precious race
And children cry for the one who has
A real big heart and a father's grace

I don't mean to seem like I care about material things
like a social status
I just want four walls and adobe slabs for the girl

    General CommentUpon initially hearing many of AC's songs you can't help but be overwhelmed by how intricate and beautiful they are; and thats without understanding a damn thing they are saying. Then you take the time to look up the lyrics and read a little about the band, and realize just how deep some of these songs really are and how amazing AC is.

    On a side note, I actually hope Bear Hug isn't in the new album. I didn't care much for it at APW, but then again, I didn't care much for APW :P
