This song is loosely based on a true story. A Little Rock true story.
The true part of the true story comes from a very confused and troubled soul who walked around Little Rocks' Capitol View Neighborhood stealing cats, putting them in coolers and some how incorporated a d.i.y. time machine in his nefarious motives. Unfortunately this was not that long ago.
fortunately vocalist Jeremy Brasher, who wrote the lyrics decided to imagine this reality to an even weirder, darker place.
"Screaming Jay Waites"!
In a grave behind this southern oak, i sat about this dirty work.
This time I will not fail. I will not let my nerves deter my course.
Of course I plan this all out well. In darkened room with with dying cells.
So many wires and batteries that bleed with electricity.
The thing i wroughts' complexity is my one road away from misery.
As moon light streams through branches bare i free myself from when to where.
I'm going back yeah! I'm going back in time.
It's better there. i was a better guy.
before i did this crime. before i paid this price
when you were mine. to when you were alive
These poets, profits, priests all scheme
to heal all of the world with dreams
through medicines or other means
mechanical and even pain
but i had that vision in my mind
and i saw for once what was unseen
this science was unknown to me
but voices spoke and showed it to me
if i succeed in this thing i do
i will awaken next to you
and if all i have done should fail
i'll end this life then just as well
cause i'm going back yeah. i'm going back in time
it's better there. i was a better guy
before i did this crime. before i paid this price.
to when you were mine. to when you were still alive.
to when you were mine. when you were mine.
when you were alive.
