Is it sane, that I want to see you again, that I want to see your face, faint, rageless and undamaged I fed you well so you could take it all, and here the pale morning fades I know, at night the valleys grow old Stone cold the rivers flow But so do we as we're wanting more We'll run from the pain down the road Elph, is wounded in the woods, where she's just met her date With a face like hers she never, had to wait so long for a helping hand, and here the pale morning fades So long, and you say “I'll see you in hell” And I guess only time can tell, but when I see you I feel heaven never hell You can see me when the hills I dwell, when I run from the pain down the road

How am I supposed to, keep you by my side? How am I supposed to, stand your sobbing and crying? How am I supposed to, live up to all your expectations? How am I supposed to, return your demanding favors? And we rode darkness And we rode darkness And we rode... Are we gonna make it? She was walking on a flower bed, and it exploded in her steps Walking on a flower bed What you do is what you get "You've landed on a gold mine" "You've landed on a gold mine" she yelled "You've landed on a gold mine" And her sorrow I felt And we rode darkness And we rode darkness And we rode... Are we gonna make it?

Live longer, die bored, and cowards die older than all of us Sleep longer, and wake up older, and bored men dream about excitement And something bad happens then Full of hope began the war, but I ended up in feathers and tar I would spend my life forever, if I knew it would be better I've been adrift in a sea of rage Been pushed aside by by-the-ways I would spend my life forever, if I knew it would be better I misused my head, misused my bones, but I did not misuse my heroes Friends I betrayed, liars I obeyed, but they told me I was doing the right thing And something bad happens then Full of hope began the war, but I ended up in feathers and tar I would spend my life forever, if I knew it would be better I've been adrift in a sea of rage Been pushed aside by by-the-ways I would spend my life forever, if I knew it would be better

Mariner 04:09
You made us to break us You made me feel mad and small You gave us to take us You made me feel mad and small Mariner Mariner, could you play your last song We want to go home Drop us off at the shore Our children are crying Our children are starving In a dream, we could not break those walls In a dream, we could not break those walls Mariner Crusader, please don't blame us Have mercy on me I'm just grown up wrong Why don't you blame it on my family Why don't you blame it on my country I never voted for any religion I never voted for any politician In a dream, we could not break those walls In a dream, we could not break those walls Mariner You made us to break us You made me feel mad and small You gave us to take us You made me feel mad and small Mariner

Riverboat 03:40
First of all, you Sugar Rawk, you'll probably die of thirst Wow, you're thin and empty I almost thought you were a prince And anyhow Anyhow Why? Riverboat Someone's gotta do what I've got to do I don't wanna be the only one Someone's gotta screw up Someone's got fuel Nones will need protection, from the wickeded three, Jane, James and me Hiding Hiding, on our way back home I was given, the emotion of strength It made me feel like, a beaten man And after tonight, I know I won't die, she nodded Nodded She would be a star Lousy times Lousy times Hiding Hiding On our way back home

Another Year 04:11
There was an altar, female knights had gathered They were staring at me in silence with hope Were they all trying to become a part of me, or was I just a silent boy? The truth will have to wait, another year to be told, because I'm sure right now, I don't want to scold Listen to me Listen to me There's something you need to know With my sword and paintbrush I'd run astray I was in hate and pain I chopped and sprayed the walls were in my play, like windmills to be slayed The truth will have to wait, another year to be told, because I'm sure right now, I don't want to scold Listen to me Listen to me There's something you need to know

Waitress 05:09
Give me one... Give me one moment in a waitress dress I need to lay my fist to rest Need to show off some breast Left behind... I was left behind when the blizzard struck I became a violent man I became that kind of a man And then you broke me You said “that's hardly a waste” Now you can find me, over the hills Amplified... Amplified hopes for the younger souls And for the girls in this dump, shouldn't we all feel just a little bit of sad? Name me one... Name me one who looks like me Name me a decent man Name me my kind of a man And then you broke me You said “that's hardly a waste” Now you can find me, over the hills My favorite waitress is having a lover now My favorite waitress is having a lover now My favorite waitress is having a lover now My favorite waitress is having a lover now

Sittin' here with a band of lonely men Drinkin' beer and complaining all they can Playin' games with bullets makin' bets For the losers no one feels regrets That girl she stole their hearts And she played it very smart Now they are found guilty of, the dropout blues Behind a wall of rage, up jumped their tainted fate Shout it out and scream it out, the dropout blues Help them Jesus, tell them what to do Everyone around me is feeling sad and blue Help them Jesus, tell them what to do Make sure I won't catch none of their, dropout blues Drop me over here Pick me up over there Pray the hell today won't make me, ravin' mad Could it be a first next step? Could it give my life more sense? So I can shout it out, and scream it out, the dropout blues

Right Handed 06:22
I bought a knife and a chain and I ... I was getting kind of close to a creature of the female source I invented my own private ... loner I had him doing kind of things you would only think about, takin time trippin around And ... In the morning In the morning In the morning In the morning The betrayer among us is waiting ... 'til we ask him, "Could you get me a plate of those warm and tasty gasoline sparks?" Now I'm 36 and I need to fix my own ... fixations I let her let her let her let her breathe in So she could feel me through So she could see me right back to you And ... In the morning In the morning In the morning In the morning

I woke up, nameless, gameless and shattered I woke up, on a train, and I couldn't remember And the first rays, of a newborn sun, were waiting for me Once more no man lost I woke up I couldn't quite relate I woke up What happened the other day? The midnight special, took me far away, to a home I knew, I would never stay In the wagon next doors, I don't know where she got in, sitting cross-legged, with her hands on her knees She was half asleep, staring at the carvings of fishes I think we just shared a dream, little drifter miss And holy matters came after the storm, when the fish were already drowned A valuable lesson all the fisherman were taught, as in their God they had doubted Oh Northern man, you better turn back The Americas ain't ready yet, for your muscle with fat Valuable lessons, never quite satisfied And holy matters, never quite ran in time I've been sleepwalking in Munich, daydreaming in Bonn The skies screamed red, when the rivers broke at dawn Rise, Huddie, rise, for the mountain king His words will start to make sense, when the band begins All the while I've been, watching from the side, how the people of my kind have been, drawn into a fire Little miss, now that you've lost your hindsight, could you come up with a dream, for the soul of the people of my kind?

I believe I saw you wearing that, silver dress you'd torn to rags, I believe I heard you call a black, restless spell upon my head “Slow Bear you weasel, you better come back creeping, your muddly steps, on my path I know that you've been pokin', your nasty fun, yeah, jokin', hypocritin', mean shittin'” "Now I'm left here to starve, and I'm holding a dwarf" The slow bear got caught smoking I've been vanished and lost, and my conscience's split me apart Did I see you down in an Austria town, with your parents and so much pain? Did I show up where ever the three of you passed, by accident again? And on that Paris train, I didn't know your game My French, what a sorry mess With my poor school brain, on such a poor school day Something I guess I must have said Now I'm left here to starve, and I'm holding a dwarf The slow bear got caught smoking I've been vanished and lost, and my conscience's split me apart

When it's just me and my, darkening sky, I think about you When my companion for the night, is hiding in silence, I think about you Should I call you, please just let it ring To hear your voice on, the answering machine, would be all I need to get me going Bet you have your haze to face, in this life of late I think about you Bet you are running first lane, in some crazy race Do you think about me? Should I call you, please just let it ring To hear your voice on, the answering machine, would be all I need to get me going And I thought it over thought it over Aw, we knew Aw, we knew Aw, we knew Aw, we knew Aw, we knew I've been wrong Your hands they bleed, and they are pointing at me Think it over

about

Slow Bear

I am a one-man-band making alterantive music. My third album, Breathe Huddie Breathe, in a production of Katie Alice Greer, brings forward a darker atmosphere and embraces the DIY approach more extensively than its predecessor, Fucking Off.
