lyrics

I’ve been tearing up my mind as I run through Searching for something new
Something with a purpose, worth it, that I can hold onto
Never do I find that something new
Searching for the truth
Maybe I’ve found in the ground I can finally be of use
Oh well, I’m better off dead
I’ll melt into the ground to keep the green grass fed And let the maggots make a home out of my head
Oh well, I’m better off dead
I’ll melt into the ground to make the brown cow’s bed And let them maggots make a home out of my head
And I’ll be tearing up the dirt as I turn Conversing with the worms
Thankful I wasn’t sent to burn
And I’ll have found inside a box life ain’t so bad Pondering the words upon my epitaph
A short sweet poem of a life too quickly passed
Oh well, I’m better off dead
I’ll melt into the ground to keep the green grass fed And let the maggots make a home out of my head
Oh well, I’m better off dead
I’ll melt into the ground to make the brown cow’s bed And let them maggots make a mansion out of my head
Finally I’ll be sure, I’ve found worth, inside the earth Finally I will sleep, sound in peace, feeding the trees Finally I’ll find home, down below, to give my soul Baby I’ve found home, down below, to give, to grow

about

Geometrist Boston, Massachusetts

Geometrist came to fruition in the sweaty depths of a booze-soaked basement in Allston, MA. The self-proclaimed “weird” district of Boston served to be the perfect home for Geometrist to begin shaping their sound in late 2012. They have been creating folk-inspired indie-rock music together, and storming the Boston music scene with their brand of rock ever since. ... more
