from the album 'Raw Experience'



A tongue-in-cheek look at mourning.

Shank Butcher: bass, keys, vox

Someone died. I was told to let go. I didn't appreciate the advice.

Holding On

When the voices in your head
Get promoted to trusted friends
When the medication
Just leads to better
Hallucinations

When everybody frowns at you
But you always smile back
Well at least you seem happy
You must be on the right track

You must keep holding on
No matter what you do
I know the others say to let go
Fuck ‘em
They don’t know you

And what’s the harm
In holding on
When it’s all you got

All you have left

When the voices in your head
Starting inviting their own friends
When the medication
Just mixes well
With inebriation

When everybody smiles at you
But you always frown back
Well if you’re that unhappy
You must be on the right track

You must keep holding on

We live in a world
Of cowboys, Indians and terrorists
It’s a right wing shooting club
Of course you need a therapist
But you’re no more fucked up
Than the rest of us
Just resist
Song Comments

monkeys are super fun
A pretty song with accoustic bass and the f word. Sweet.


Small People Should Hold Flags
This guy even looks hot when he's bleeding. How does he do it?


Musings
Nice, laid-back tune, Shank, with well thought out lyric content too. Enjoyable. -M-


SOUTH DOWN UNDER
You always smile back! AUSSIE


My Other Station Is a Ferrari
Gotta love shameless self promotion.


Call It Love
Everybody has a different interpretation of these lyrics and they're all correct.


Apocalypse Radio
Welcome to The Apocalypse, Shank... you "Godley Butcher"! It's a shame you're not around any more... hope you are well. -M-
