lyrics

Rows of graphite and spongy eyes
Feed me that textbook medicine
Just don’t want to miss out on potential worth
To shove into my pasty skin

Format matters as a matter of fact
Fact is I’m feeling formidable
Test my patience like you test my mind
Writing answers that crossed the line

Business school college rule
Time to Make something of yourself

Out of order today
Just can’t get my mind over matter made out
Cheating from the corner of my eyes
Connecting the dots but they don’t want to align

Ten-pound books tearing through my mind
Page by page I found myself stop trying
C’s get degrees that are hotter than mine
F is for fantastic use of my time

Hey check out my next party trick
It’s time for me to drop out again real quick
I’m not cut out for the A to B plan
Does that make me a lesser man?

Business school College rule
Time to Make something of yourself

Out of order today
Just can’t get my mind over matter made out
Cheating from the corner of my eyes
Connecting the dots but they don’t want to align

Kids get your checkbooks out
Play a little game for fun
Freedom ringing in your ears
Feeling like a loaded gun

Out of order today
Just can’t get my mind over matter made out
Cheating out of the corner of my eyes
Connecting the dots but they don’t want to align

Through his project Backyard Universe, Stonemets weaves these folksy musings between wiry grooves, elastic & space-soaked guitar lines, and trickling textures. The tunes suggest blurry, triumphant anthems; the words invoke solaced, woodsy reflections. ... more
