Dead Honky

by Hearing Shadows



This song is one of ten on the upcoming release "Reach" by Hearing Shadows, an alt.rock trio from Chicago.


Looks like I’m kicking my own ass again. Shit’s coming at me like a dickens. Trying to spank the monkey before it kills me. Feeling like a dead honky. Can a brother get a meal? Who do I have to kill? Some commies for your mommy too? Or, do I have to smoke a bowl for Jesus Christ? Just tell me what I have to do. Why do I have to work so hard just to sing my song? Just to have all the stuff and junk I wanted for so long? What’s up with that shit? Why do I make castles in the sand? I’m going bat shit. Why should I keep giving all I can? One way or another, we all go down and end up the same way. It doesn’t really matter. Round and round and round we all fall down. Dead honky. Can a brother get a meal, who do I have to kill?
