The album "Words of Wizdumb" combines story telling with alternative rock. Each of these songs takes a look at the world from a unique point of view.
"Stuck in the Antpile" is a rocking allegory of the unique individual (in this case... an ant) who defies the common life course and ventures out on his own to seek his own destiny. (Clean)
"She Doesn't Like the Way I Breathe" This fast-paced song tells of a relationship of someone who loves someone but doesn't like anything about them. (Explicit)
"Haunted By Her Laugh" A beautiful, haunting ballad about a person who dies young after having lived a gutless existence. And, then he's in limbo, forced to watch his loved one move on with their life. (Clean)
"Hey Adults (Thanks For F***-ing Everything Up) A rock song that harkens back to rocks roots but with a twist. This song is pretty self-explanatory if you've read the title. It's a theme song for those who feel like adults haven't quite handled their business. (Explicit)
"Getaway" A lyrical song about a person who even though their life has fallen apart is still better off not being in a relationship with someone who just makes it worse. (Clean)
"Dead to Me" A beautiful ballad about your soul mate making a mistake that you can't recover from and wanting to be as far away from them as possible eventhough the love you have never goes away. (Clean)
"I Wanna Be King" A fast-paced song for a day when the only thing that matters is finally getting your way with no repercussions. Corruption... Absolutely. (Explicit)
