Claw Use In The Autumn Years Of The 20th Century
(Brodie Rush copyright 1996)

You want me
Call me in then
Degrading you'll tell no one
Maybe you could tell me?
If your claw works properly

Hello girls are you in there
My heart is out and it is scared
Untie me
I'll go quietly
I see your claw works properly
Track Name: Fly On Potatoe
Track Name: Discouraged
(Music: Brodie Rush Lyrics: Apryll Cordero)

Gotta move on it's shit time
Most of my life is spent
On this pile of shit balls

Somehow I feel that
Moving all this is
Bringing my glorious potential down

Haggard legs beat
Against this barren land
And rolling this poop has
Made me sad

And in a way I'm
Feeling if
You'd take me out to roll some shit
