lyrics

A Bah'a'a'ah Relief <== Code Switch

Oooooo! Eu has tragedy by the throat!
Hehe – when Eu laughs, it's so grounded
Understandingly
Eu remembers all too clearly
Eu's mostly-friendly commodity which has been with Eu
For longer than Eu cares to remember
Longer than Eu can /actually/ remember

Boxcars of buyers it brings Eu
But Eu has no room for their callous insecurity
And its attention, greedy
Binging and purging in incestuosity
With inherited ad valorem mating ritual
Rendered viciously moot by falsely termed “free trade”
And its “duty free” ports of call - so full of shit

Eu travels lightly and owns little more than relationships
The shortest distances to which are circles
And Eu relates these through varied mode of communication
Rooting out what works to preserve the closeness and community
True relationships demand
And what doesn't
But, sure, when crossing paths with the crossed
Eu will glow with their flow to illuminate the path out
Of their so-so sewing of seeds
Their future generations from no-fault defaulty
Uncareful pre-deeding of terrorificallytorial lands
To be brokered by hand, ham-fistedly
And arms, all army-like
Until their springs, off as /ever/
With their demand for similarly crossed friends
Have memorized the price of nails!

Eu steps outside of concentric familial shells
Fitting in fittingly with the misfits of the misfits
And the further complicits in revolutionary perspectives
Broadening Eu's body language
And damning no dance
Dancers will damn their damn selves if need be
It's up to Eu to simply support Eu's dance's needs
And supplement it
With healthy doses of questioning
The only tragedy in such a position
Is remaining silent when in opposition
Being reactionarily cruel
When one is but a school of one
Remaining in place
When leaving's the best case
Or falling asleep... … ...
In the midst of an important bedtime story

Eu offers ¡explosives!
If a big bang is needed
Consoles tender, hole-y wounds
When best to offer calmer treatment
But Eu typically sticks to sensitive
Eu tries to remain responsive
Eu strives to stay swimmingly humane
And Eu better fucking believes
Eu is never not a /nervous/ system

about

The Shortest Distance Fort Worth, Texas

Straight-lines and perfect circles exist. The Shortest Distance is an attempt in words, sounds, and light to share a subjective experience of universal grace and its consequences.

The Shortest Distance is the brainchild of Ramsey Billiot Sprague, a Chitimacha social justice organizer born in coastal Louisiana and raised in suburban Arlington, Texas.
