The second track off the Andy the Doorbum side of the Andy the Doorbum/Yardwork split 7 inch on Self Aware Records.


I picked up a stone and I threw that rock for all that it was worth.
It climbed up toward the Lord, struck an eagle, then it fell back down to Earth.
And it soared when it fell, much like when it was alive.
And its spirit comes to haunt me as I lie awake at night.
Oh God, he asks for nothing but a word.
You stole my friends and family, and all I've taken from you is that bird...

I'm proud for what I've done and feel great shame for that which I have not.
One thousand years of peace in exchange for the billions made of rot.
And I'll tirelessly scour the earth and sea for that mound of gold you bestowed unto man.
But all I've found so far are piles of sand.
Oh Lord, if you can hear me, please guide my knife and bless where it will land.

And an angel sings as he gets the wings
Stolen from that eagle lying in the dirt.
"La la la la la la la..."
That's all I heard.
May your nest lay empty.
May rodents eat the eggs that you have birthed.
And God, if you can hear me, I would trade my spot in Heaven for that bird.
