(ill YAY' mee) n.
award-winning percussive rock-folk from Baltimore, MD

Common.

Look at them all cautious now
Every one a wallflower stone
You & I we're dangerous
Coveted unknowns
But take them by the eyes like this
And make them understand
"I'm here for you & only you"
darling till I pass

there's nothing to be said for waiting
there's nothing to be said for standing proud
there's nothing to be said for watching what has passed
cause none of this will last

look at them all twisted now
I'm nesting in their skulls
Gather this around us now`
And pull & turn & shift
Wrap them thick around us
To keep us from ourselves
Get Gordian & Labyrinth-like
Never let them cut them out

There's nothing to be said for growing up
There's nothing to be said for standing still
There's nothing to be said for waiting till you're asked
Cause none of this will last

Work the room & shine & cover them in lies
Let them see the prize
There's something to be said for taking what is mine
Cause none of this can last

Look at them all quiet now
They feast on what they're fed
None of them are sated yet
But you know they'll learn to Live with what they get
Sure God will get their souls
And some spouse will get their flesh
But eyes & flare & flash & fire
Yeah, the dreamers get the best

There's something to be said for shutting up
There's something to be said for diving deep
There's something to be said for going very fast
Cause none of this can last
