TRL-style shout-out to Kiwi


I've been waitin' for so long
And it's been takin' so long
It takes time but time's been tickin' so long
Leaves me wonderin' what ifs might come along

And everyone's tip-toein'
Through a field of mines
Never really knowin'
Just how they lose their minds
And everyone's afraid of
What might one day change
Well change is comin'
It's comin' anyway

But I've been tryin' to hold on
And I've been tryin' so hard
Well I've been feelin' so-so so long
A man can wring his hands only so long

And everyone is waitin'
For their turn to die
Trying to fit their life in
Before the big goodbye
But all of life's surprises
And let-downs are the same
To prepare for our demise and
Embrace it as a change- it's okay

And everyone is showin'
Their faces from behind
Never really knowin'
Someone else's mind
And through all of this growin'
I can't help feeling strange
When change changes nothin'
As changes lead to change

But I've been patient for so long
As things I've awaited don't come
Life, I can only hold on for so long
Until we're sayin', "So long!"

Grey Milk Athens, Georgia

You are here... sort of.

We are natives of New England and currently base our operations out of Athens, GA.

We're part of Nobody's Favorite Records and The Branch Collection: two obscure, amorphous groups of folks who collectively pool our efforts of creativity- primarily those of the musical variety. These monikers give us the appearance of added legitimacy.

We are human.
