lyrics

A subtle rain’s enough to keep the two of us from lover’s leap
And far away from kayaking in shallow lakes nearby
Where motorboats are not allowed and a family begins to crowd
Toward dryer kitchens in cabins they’ve rented near the shore
Far from bored, we imaginate that we’re experts nearing season 8
On The “Let’s Get Crazy Cabin Crew” HGTV show.
And though we know this can’t last forever, a borrowed shelter in stormy weather
We’ll spend this time we have together, making mountain love

We leave behind all the things that we’ve made
Hoping to find a more meaningful place
A change in perception, a chaotic wave
To wash us right over while we stand brave
A hole in the fence where the roads are unpaved
And ooze with adventure and lead us to caves
I know we will leave here, we’ve people to save
So if there are gods, let me hold this mindframe


A town and country odyssey, a wind star voyaging chevy
Astro mini superVan, and the family contained within
Know not if there’s a better way to make happiness stay so they
Promise they’ll return from home when chilly rain submits to snow.
So down the mountain, down they go, a CEO from old Frisco
A thousand up, a single horse, astride atop shiny new Porsche
There’s hella dudes, huge trucks with racks,
extreme bro-brahs in fitted caps with bills to backs, forgot exactly what sport team they’re for
I was born to self Navigate, but ancient instincts get replaced
By embraced races safely leading fastest to my cage where there’s

Three squared Miles, a habitat encasing all the
Things I’ve made and the places where I made them
Three squared miles of easy flat terrain where
Three square meals fill body and brain

With just enough to do to numb down the memory
Of rainfall mountainside, and being there at night
Hard as I try to keep an inner energy
steeped in Wild Scents,
evaporation happens
unless it’s soaked again.
Nomadic Tribes may pepper my ancestry,
But Nurture must win out, cuz I don’t leave the house
but
What would the caveman do? ( I ask myself)
What would the caveman do?
What would the caveman do?

"BE BRAVE is the sort of band who make me reconsider throwing in the towel every time I listen to their inventive pop masterpiece ‘Take A Deep Breath’. There are few occasions when you hear a band for the first time and know implicitly that you are going to love everything that they do. This is one of those bands."
