Songs and lyrics

InventionBrendan Bonsack

 Listen to audio demo

I've been waking very early and with urgent despatch
You can feel so very brittle till there's a house upon your back
My feet have gotten harder, though they never touch the ground
I hold memory in my hand but I don't know what to do
With all the things that I remember now

And you know you've invented the wheel
When you feel that you've been rolled
And you know you've discovered money
When you feel that you've been sold
And just what is that dripping sound that follows me around?

I've been sleeping very lately as insects tap against the light
I'm everybody's creature of habit and of choice,
A creature of the day and the night
Grandma, I'm eating all my veges, at least that's what I think they are
They've got meds for the fire in my belly and pills for the aching in my heart

And you know you've invented matches
When you feel that you've been burned
And you know you've discovered money
When your body has to be earned
And just what is that dripping sound
That follows me around?

And you know you've invented the gods
When you finally predict the rain
And you know you've discovered money
When you need to predict it again
And just what is that dripping sound
That always follows me around?
