Spring.

written and first recorded for FAWM 2016 - Chuck Madd Ox verse added specifically for the album version on 2017's "cicada"and is ©2017 Chuck "the Madd Ox" Maddox.

I can't believe
This is the way it's going down
Glass houses on the ground and
Stones thrown all around
The only way that that can play out
Is on a flat flat earth
On a round round world
It's bound to come around again again
it's bound to come around around again

I can't believe
this is the way it's going down
rage & rape & rhetoric
But we monkeys like our vengeance quick
But you think it's justice
Even when it's "just us"
But on a round round world
It's bound to come around again again
it's bound to come around around again

Spring will come

I can't believe
This is the way it's still played today
White man jumps and
Black man pays
One man Trumps
all the sense around the world today
Whether weather withers Texas
Or whether Mississippi drowns today
I see someone serving up a toast
Drunk & stinking seeking sense
But you just have
To go & do the math
It's bound to come around again again
it's bound to come around around again

Spring will come.

MADD OX verse:
The way it's going down
The sky attacks the ground
Teen spirit
smells like sadness
Just to move the world
Push the Earth
off its axis
Outrageous tactics
Ghetto Acrobats onna pissy mattress
The simple fact is
The struggle ain't cute
it's filled with asses
Corporations
Apply'n lashes
Make it rain ta separate the masses
We all need a little sunshine
But the ways of man
Keep fuckin wit our mind
Before you, defined you,
You're already defined
Break'n the chains
Make up your mind
What conquers the hurt & the pain
is the moment you shine

I can't believe
Two two sixteen
Cold war's back
But it's just a meme
Oil's cheap
The sun is bright
It's a February spring
It's bound to come around again again
it's bound to come around around again

Spring will come
