I can feel the crawl start inside my head It's the feeling that I dread And this baseless gall has got me seeing red Was this anger born or bred? When you take the oath and you take the stand Is your testimony planned? Will you drown us both if I take your hand? Good morning fakeness It's time for your wake up call And I'm glad to know that you've got my back Push me face first on the track And you've finally shown just what it is you lack Grow some backbone in your back Will you show some growth when we take a stand Or just show us the backside of your hand? Is this all some joke? Help me understand Good morning fakeness It's time for your wake up call For goodness sakeness Must you always come up so small? I've got to tell you something This is the best thing you could do Just added motivation To reach success in spite of you Will you take the time to notice what is happening? If you give me time I can show us that we both can win Raise a glass to toast the man you could have been Raise a glass up high and drink the karma in At the chapter close Looking for my pen Where the hell's my happy end? Such a wondrous show But it's wearing thin Wipe away that permagrin Yes it's time you know that your gestures grand Only come across as planned Such an awful joke Such a wasted man Good morning fakeness It's time for your wake up call For goodness sakeness It's time to wake up

Constranged 07:34
And I get so tired of how we waste our lives away So damn uninspired Lounging round like lemmings while you say Wait wait wait for it I feel your vibe - it's crystal clear Take our pride and disappear Squash us all inside a box - aerate it Break our stride - you can watch our spirit die And I get so mired in this muck of mediocrity We should all aspire to be something special but we just Wait wait wait for it Speak your jive into our ear Replace our drive with constant fear When we crawl into your box, we'll be sated Keep us dry and you'll keep us all in line Conformed and constranged Deformed, disengaged We can try another lie on and hope that it fits better than before And I get so wired by the endless possibilities My synapses fire So don't go telling me to Wait wait wait for it I feel so alive when you're here We should strive to make it clear When we crawl outside this box we've created We could fly Conformed and constranged Deformed, disengaged Every single thought of yours meticulously crafted and arranged Segregated from our souls at such an early age We can try another lie on and hope that it fits better than before

All We Are 05:51
It's funny when it comes - the sudden clarity So thankful for the love you've always given me All we are and all we'll ever be is grateful For this love and for this family I've seen the broken souls that live in misery So hollow and alone - it's all they've ever seen They say all we are and all we'll ever be is fated We're apple's just fallen from the tree Time is racing forward I don't want to let this go Why must it take so long for us to appreciate this? Why must we all lose something close before we grow? I wanna take the time to tell you what you mean You sacrificed it all to help us reach our dream They say all we are and all we'll ever be is fated We're apple's just fallen from the tree Time is racing forward I don't wanna let it go I love you more than you'll ever know Why must we all lose sight of all our inspiration? Why must we all pay the toll of letting go? Oh don't go They say all we are and all we'll ever be is fated I couldn't ask a better destiny

I miss your face Why won't you call? Just how much space will fix this all? And I continue to hope I'll find you waiting at my door I can't dismiss you and let myself believe that this is all I miss your smile Your funny way You never failed to make my day And I will give you the time you need to sort it all apart Just know that I'm waiting with nothing here but love inside my heart This sudden fall from grace Has left me lying helpless on the floor It all seems out of place Why can't we go back where we were before So where did you go? I miss your heart So pure and true But most of all I just miss you I still believe that we have the choice to love without regret Don't stop believing - we haven't thrown it all away just yet This sudden fall from grace Has left me lying helpless on the floor It all seems out of place Why can't we go back where we were before So where did you go?

I feel the subtle pull again The notes are pushing me to document them A waking dream I put to pen Lest I awake to find the notes elude me Yes I always lose myself in a cloud of chord and melody It's how I allow myself to live in harmony Another moment of regret Of life and love and hope of something better Twelve notes serving as my net To grasp the endless scale of all that matters It's here I know just what to say The words I speak a constant flowing It's my own musical bidet Wipe clean the excrement that might be growing Whenever I get tired of fighting it I go to the corner of the room Tickling the twine and ivory Hello from the corner of the room I swear this movement keeps me sane It's vital to my very composition Reshape this clutter from my brain And let the music form the resolution When the wind gets cold and this world grows old There's a path that I can take to wipe away this ache When I'm all alone I get on my throne And begin to procreate with my dear 88 Whenever I get tired of fighting it I go to the corner of the room Tickling the twine and ivory Hello from the corner of the room Whether high or low I've got to let it flow From the corner of the room Welcome to the show Let me say hello

Take this thread and tie a knot around my head Take this thread I'm hanging on and cut it instead

I have no regret All the blood and sweat is worth it all I'm standing tall Another new day is breaking our way Whether bright or hazy gray These changes are happening everywhere we turn This strangeness is all around no matter what we do I've done all the math and chosen my path But life won't lay down easily A turn in the way may lead us astray Fate will have its say in things These changes keep happening everywhere we go This strangeness keeps messing with everything we know I've seen it a thousand times These self-defeated minds Shaken, aching for a sign This time is all we have Make every single minute count Don't stop to hesitate Or you will never really know how far you can go And all I'll ever need I hold inside my heart and in my mind And if I don't succeed, I still have pride in knowing that I tried Though life is hardly fair to anyone, it's worse to quit and run It's how we face defeat that makes someone when all is said and done Another new day is heading our way I'll accept what it may bring And all I can say is we'll be okay In our life, there'll be strife These changes are happening everywhere we turn This strangeness is all around, forcing us to learn

Final Call 06:51
I'm telling you something's wrong with this And we cannot place it And we will not face it Oh no A well-sharpened edge is up against your throat There's water in your boat What more can you say Go hang yourself - I've left you plenty of rope I've given you plenty of final mistakes There'll be no callback today Put up barricades to block your only road A self-fulfilling ode What more can you say Go hang yourself - I've left you plenty of rope I've given you plenty of final mistakes There'll be no callback today FINAL CALL Look back on those days You overplayed your role The lines aren't all you stole What more can you take? You hung yourself and left us plenty of rope Your role in my life was left on the cutting room floor Just wasted footage we've all seen so often before Fall flat on your face just looking for that little more I've given you plenty of final mistakes There'll be no callback today FINAL CALL

about

Damn Fine Coffee Durham, North Carolina

DFC, the latest project of Jonn Buzby (Land of Chocolate, Finneus Gauge) takes a stripped-down approach to the frenetic musical mayhem that has long been Buzby's trademark, eschewing the use of guitar in exchange for a more simplistic trio that most notably resembles Ben Folds Five in terms of setup and personnel... ... more
