about

Abuse is also perpetrated by individuals who wield the lofty justification of ideology. Be it political, economic or religious – believing you know what's best for others is an ugly epidemic that can only be cured by giving others, and yourself, permission to choose not to believe the things that present themselves as truth. Go forth and question, my friends.

lyrics

When I was a younger man
I thought that life held answers.
That I was the part of some great plan,
In step with other holy dancers.

Now I am an older man
And the only plan that I see
Is the one that lies in my own schemes
Or the pulse of other desiring machines.

One thing that I see clear
Sometimes we hurt what we most hold dear.
Look for the logic but I just can’t find
Your intelligent design.
Design

Sometimes we all need a
scapegoat to believe the shit that people do.
Sometimes there’s no reason
that you can perceive in what you’re going through.

But that’s no reason to deny your
That’s no reason to defer your responsibility.

We must go down many roads
Before we reach our destination
One thing I know that there’s no GPS
That will guide you through every situation

I’m not saying don’t believe
If you think you’ve found the answer.
Just don’t try and sell it to me.
One size fits all is the way of cancer.

There are things that I hear
From ones who claim to hold you dear
That bear no logic sense or rhyme or
Intelligent design.
Design

Sometimes we all need a
scapegoat to believe the shit that people do.
Sometimes there’s no reason
that you can perceive in what you’re going through.

But that’s no reason to deny your
That’s no reason to defer your
But that’s no reason to deny your
That’s no reason to defer your responsibility.

A connoisseur of dark moods and plaintive melodies, t.k. bollinger is an explorer on the road less travelled. His musical children are songs of contrite and emotionally challenged characters confessing their darkest fears and tortured realisations.
They speak of the usual things – love, abuse, neglect and the small triumphs and tiny truths that gleen in our day to day growth and survival.
