lyrics

the Realization station + a dim Light:
bothered enough by these knots
perched in this nest, tangles my home
fly one day, perhaps unravel
i can finally stretch myself out

a dim Light:
but history and biology are telling me these troubles ain't my own
and every time someone shines “the light” it hides a dim one that might be my own
... or at least some warmth

the Realization station + a dim Light:
and peace

teach me simple

the Realization station:
this i pray:

a dim Light:
this i might pray:

the Realization station + a dim Light:
move me backwards every day

give me no more than my daily bread
flour + water
wheat + river
soil + rain
earth + sky

a dim Light:
all your prayers are telling me to just believe these troubles ain't my own
but every time someone finds “the truth” it hides a dim one that might be their own
... at least from what i've

the Realization station + a dim Light:
gleaned

a dim Light:
that all bets are off now
it's all a joke, but that you knew
sing “all bets are off” now
and it's all a joke, just laugh this time
so “ha ha”

the Realization station + a dim Light:
ha ha

a dim Light:
when someone dares to cross the line they get the joke but find themselves alone
and every time i find “the light” it hides a dim one that might be my own

the Realization station + a dim Light:
but does it matter?
we've been beaten to the punch

cause they've wrapped it up, it's all sugar ... white ... stale
and we've chewed it up, it's already poisoned

a dim Light:
so now we're fucked up

the Realization station + a dim Light:
so what, we're fucked up?
so now we're fucked up!

a dim Light:
surprised we're fucked up?!

about

in giro Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

on the move, in motion, out and about: that's “in giro”, and that we are. we pick up things in our travels, pluck them from limbs, absorb or excavate or simply remember them, and during layovers we stitch these together and sing. being in giro is being with change, and ever-seeking we make music that ever-seeks. ... more
