MY 50th Mefimusic POST!

Thank y'all for 7 fun years. Here's a new tune I wrote for my band Big Ghost called Great Spirit (get it? get it?) Enjoy!

waking up hungry, humble and hungry
fall asleep full but i'm waking up hungry
it's all that i pray for the rest of my days

in the basement with the great spirit
we've been talking shit and now we want you to hear it
we've got cloudy eyes and we've got broken hearts
but still we can't lose no, we've been set apart
i've got a good feeling better days are coming
I mean next year can't be as bad as last one
and I ain't saying that we ain't never tasted blood
but in our defense we're just trying to do what we love

weightless and certain
when i wake up i'll be weightless and certain
it's all that i want today and now on

in the basement with the great spirit
we found something good and now we want to share it
oh this joyful noise it is a goddamn miracle
it's like a child's faith, maybe a little bit more durable
we've been snake handling, we've been tongue speaking
it's a good way to spend a long weekend
and I ain't saying that we ain't never let the devil in
but in our defense we just did what it is on the tin

Fuzz up those guitars! Great to hear the vocals get weirder and weirder.
