Pass My Hat

I’d pass my hat, but it’s all full of holes
Your loose change, baby, do me no good no more
Now fry my soul in your nuclear fission
And I’ll ride your heat wave right out the door

The sky is burning and your city’s melting
I’m gonna get my hat, Lord get out of this town
The sea is steaming and the earth’s just a quaking
I’m gonna plant my dream in what’s left of the ground

Follow the prints my feet are making
Don’t know where I have been but I’m goin’ home
You may think I’m dreaming, but I’m just sleep a walking
You may think I’m goin’, but I’m already gone.


from 1st Strike, released November 17, 2017
