And you've got me thinking Of what, you've done for me And I've grown and I have grown and I have grown Into what you now see And I saw the people That lift you away And I fought and I scratched and I screamed Against the earth, which I lay Singing Ha Hal Hallelujah aaa Singing Ha Hal Hallelujah aaa Singing And it's been so long now Since I've been myself Not moving on like you'd have wanted But squandering all the time spent blaming myself Screaming Ha Hal Hallelujah aaa Screaming Ha Hal Hallelujah aaa Screaming Hal Hallelujah Screaming Hal Hallelujah

What's under my skin Is never know My body shakes from the ground below And I'm happy It's nothing like before Creating every instant That I can feel you more Tossing and turning It all comes to me Both as unknown But familiar geometry Blazing and burning it all down to shreds I am standing here wondering what it all meant And I'm happy It's nothing like before Creating every instant That I can feel you more That I can feel you more From the first time I started see I was only moving backwards till washed out to sea Never saw it coming and couldn't see it go I miss you so dearly from my heart on the floor Your eyes have faded since you've moved to the unknown It's with the angels I have traded Crying Oh Whoooa Whoooa Whoooa

There are these lines Just counting the pace Converge into one And making your face Leave me back to find What we’re missin' here Leave it undefined What you couldn't hear What If I can't take You going away Why Every time My heart breaks And I know, I know It's all in my head But it’s futile, futile To think of someone else instead I'm finding the ground Not perfectly clear Adverse from a point Then fall into cheer Not too comfortable With what we're doing here You have to jump To leave behind the fear What If I can't take You going away Why Every time My heart breaks And I know, I know It's all in my head But it’s futile, futile To think of someone else instead And I’ll call and I’ll try I don't think we'll make it out alive And I'll fall out with time And wonder why I even tried With a kick and a smack I'll be out before the end of the night With a life to exist when love is at risk There is only one thing we can do and try And when you and I Learn to try Not just to get by There are reasons here Or a point is clear Reaching far and near Hold your troubles dear Divide the lines That fill the cracks we find Between now and then Find your future spent There are these lines Just counting the pace Converge into one And making your face Not too comfortable With what we're doing here You have to jump To leave behind the fear

Reach far In the back of your mind It's hiding there Waiting for you to find The Light That you promised We'd make it out all right There was that kink in your throat That told us all that we needed to know The summer was to be long and cold As the truth poured out from the silence you’d hold The light That you promised we'd Make it out alive And the statues that rang their ugly heads The waves crashing overhead Bring yourself over that open flame Heat the core till it's time to change Peace from the troubles you know That keep you from the sleep in your home And paddle out from the banks of your mind As the waves break forth and form the shoreline With light That break apart The lies in your life

about

Civil Culture New Hampshire

Civil Culture is a peregrination of contradictions
super-imposed in the sonic spectrum. Listening to the call and answer of one's existence to find the harmonizing tensions of life, Civil Culture lends itself to an open mind.
