Lyrics
STILL UPRIGHT
2014 Sahlen-Starburst

(CHORUS)
TOO MANY BEERS, THRU WRETCHED YEARS, FALLING UPSIDE DOWN
THE SWIZZLE STICKS, THE ENDLESS KICKS, TOO FAR FROM HOMEWARD BOUND
I CAN'T BELIEVE I STILL CAN SEE THE AXIS OF FULL LIGHT
THE BRIDGES BURNED, THE FRIENDSHIPS CHURNED, YET I'M STILL UPRIGHT

A LIFE, TOO FAST PACED TO WASTE, A PAUPER ON HIS KNEES
A PAPAL PLOW, A BEAST AFOUL...MORE OXYGEN, IF YOU PLEASE
IT'S US OR THEM, IT'S NEVER "WHEN?", IT'S TIME TO PARTY NOW
A LITTLE BLOW, SOME SEEDS TO SOW...C'MERE, I'LL SHOW YOU HOW

(CHORUS)

(BREAK)

BRIDGE....
WITH A BANG, SOUTHERN SLANG, A MASTERFUL SURPRISE
A SUDDEN JERK, A MIDLIFE QUIRK, A SOUFFLE FILLED WITH LIES

Instrumental break

THIS BREATH TO HOLD MY CONSCIOUS SPIRIT DISEMBOWLED
THE SLY, SHY SMILE, THE BRAIN PURGED FILE, THE GROANING GINSBERG HOWL
THE MOTHER WEEPS WHILE CHILDREN SLEEP, SHE BLASTS NOW OUT OF HERE
FRIEND AND FOE, DECEIT SLOW MO, A LIFE STUCK IN FAST GEAR

(CHORUS)
