lyrics

Is all that we are just the sum of all we've been
A collection of impressions of all that we have seen

Inside you there's a piece of every place you ever went
And if you've got pieces from everywhere then you're a bit like old Peer Gynt
-
Our kings and stars and presidents
All struggle with these elements
Status, age and arrogance
The meaning of their existence
And the question of our existence

Negro slaves to Carolina
Heathen images to China
Use them and abuse them
For money and to see what happens

Here you have gone too far sir
Here you have gone too far sir

Punishments and Lullabies
A kiss, a fist between the eyes
Punishments and Lullabies
A kiss, a fist between the eyes

Now are you ready for your meltdown?
Are you ready for your meltdown?

about

Thomas Truax New York, New York

"Thomas Truax crafts rich, poetically evocative songs about insects, trees, technology, and a lifelong obsession with all things lunar. He travels the world performing with his "band" of bizarre self-made instruments including a motorized drum machine made with bike wheels and a souped-up Gramophone called 'The Hornicator', as well as his venerable guitar 'Hank'.
