happy? part 4. the Realization station

lyrics

a dim Light:
but i'm so tired of swimming upstream
with no light or straight line to a truth
that it's a cliff: one sees it all so clearly
but take another ... step

~credo~
the Realization station:
happy yet?

the Realization station + a dim Light:
so happy yet?

The LOUDEST:
but you know where you end
pretty near to where that “joyful” begins
but now you've got your scar and credo
so “let go” now
just be sure to not let everyone down
maybe they can keep your credo?
the sparks fade out in the street
you're talking metas, they've got nothing to eat
maybe they'll just eat your credo?
and since you're keeping score
this ain't the first time that you came to my door
so maybe we'll just keep your seat
no matter how refined the speech
know that when you're hungry
you're gonna eat that credo!

~but how? and who?~
the Realization station + a dim Light:
so happy yet?

they've wrapped it up

the Realization station:
and you've chewed it up

a dim Light:
and i've chewed it up

the Realization station + a dim Light:
it's already poisoned

so now we're fucked up
so what we're fucked up?
surprise we're fucked up ...

a dim Light:
bad!

the Realization station + a dim Light:
how?
who?
so happy yet?

the Realization station:
happy yet?
who?
how?

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
