Highs & Lows

from by Vinny Vegas



For those with reasons to say
you're only as good as the merits you claim
for years it came in waves
leaving for months and returning for days
My bones are brittle and stale
just framing that holds what's weakened by wear
but still we beg to know what it's like to live
by highs and lows

Old habits are getting worse than they have ever been
I think that maybe if I can leave I won't have time for them
but there has gotta be a place where I can go
to stop these shaky knees and sweaty palms
from being part of me
to stop an anxious brain that never sleeps
and make it calm again
there has gotta be a place where I can go to
feel at peace again

and know that the pieces won't be perfect
but together they can still make perfect wholes
I paced it and still I grew tired of waiting
for the high points to grow old
Given the time to grow a vision
I'd give you a vision worth the pace
so show me the burdens I've been weighing
and I'll show you a passion worth their weights

till then… fall in line… just like this
put your tongue between your teeth
shut your mouth and just agree
fold your hands on to your knees
mind your backbone and just agree
or you can take the things you learn
and show them to the world
cause that's all you owe


from The Big White Whale, track released November 5, 2013
