lyrics

Once upon a time,
There was a man made out of steel and iron
Walking upon that water
Wondering where to go

Then, everyone woke
To the dirty laundry that time will unfold
People seek perfection
And they lie right through their bones

Now, here comes a storm
Before you know it you’ll be out on your own
There’s a long hard fall awaiting
Keep your eyes on the road

You used to float down a lazy river
You said you needed a boat when the waters shifted
More like the Holy Ghost; you need lifting
Back when I needed you most you kept disappearing

Fame felt like a dream
Lived like money was growing out of your sleeves
You were rolling like a fortune teller
Selling stories of make believe

Some people they say
Are cut from a cloth of a different make
They showered you with affection
And blew their kisses in your face

Split right up the seems
She fell graceful like the autumn leaves
Now you’re broken from a-heavy pressure
Awkward and diseased

You used to float down a lazy river
You said you needed a boat when the waters shifted
More like the Holy Ghost; you need lifting
Back when I needed you most you kept disappearing

Luck never returns
It touches you once and then it’s gone in a blur
You should have proceeded with caution
But you got caught up in the allure

Time must hold the key
For whatever brings a man to his knees
It’s inevitable to encounter
Every living thing’s destiny

Life’s crippling tide
It’ll wash over anything that you hide
So you’re better off being authentic
Than running round telling lies

You used to float down a lazy river
You said you needed a boat when the waters shifted
More like the Holy Ghost; you need lifting
Back when I needed you most you kept disappearing

I Am Buffalo Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania

I Am Buffalo is music. Music for the transformative. Music for the working man. Music to wake you up and put you to sleep. Music that puts you in touch with the floater in the corner of your eye. Music that manipulates and conjugates. Music that hounds and pounds. Music that articulates, defibrillates, and punctuates. Music for the aristocrat and the sewer rat. Music for which you should move. ... more
