Liner Notes: 

A posthumous entry into the superskirmish. Recorded the music during the Catalytic Perverters practice last night. It took us about 10-15 minutes to throw together. This morning, I decided to use one of the superskirmish titles to write and record lyrics and vocals, giing myself 45 minutes to do so. I opened the first superskirmish thread that I hadn't yet looked at (which was C), and got the prompt "Hope." That made me think of something my Mom used to say to me, "You can want in one hand and shit in the other. See which one fills up faster." Want changes to hope and I have the chorus. There verses played off of twisting up the old "hold springs eternal" guff. Anyway, it turned out as a weird, but within time constraints songskirmish.

Lyrics: 

Raising awareness
to be fair
is just caring about
it's not caring for

Hope springs infernal
while faith fails eternal
believe what you want
just don't try to ignore

you can hope in one hand and shit in the other
tell me which one fills up faster

Hope springs infernal
while faith fails eternal
believe what you want
just don't sell it to me

Wishes and prayers
float through the air
find nothing to cling to
disappear on the breeze

you can hope in one hand and shit in the other
tell me which one fills up faster



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
