Balm for the soul

Scratch Feed

Little Willy got the waterproof boots on
Little Willy got the flannel shirt
Little Willy got the waterproof boots on
We just got done playing in the dirt now
Me, I got my moon boots on
Moon boots dirty pants, dirty pants (dirty pants)

Little Willy got some anger from his Father
Little Willy gotta get that out
Little Willy got some little boy anger that he didn’t even know about
And me got a little bit of anger built up from my peaceful upbringing
Maybe, more like the TV, TV

Two feisty little boys – we’re feisty
But we don’t know why
Now we gotta get out out

Me and Willy went to check on the chickens
Me and Willy had a bucket for the eggs
Me and Willy went to check on the chickens
But them chickens didn’t lay no eggs
So me and Willy, we went nuts and beat those chickens up

We threw ‘em up against the wall
Me and Willy threw them all around the coup
Me and Willy killed three of them chickens
My Mama made chicken soup
And when my Daddy walked in
He couldn’t believe his eyes

And when I think about that day
I always ask myself why?
How could I? Why did I?

We had to get it all out
But we didn’t even know it was in
And neither did the chickens
No, neither did the chickens

Everybody’s gotta get it out sometimes
But everybody’s gotta know how
Just ask your therapist
There’s ways they won’t allow
Like killing chickens
You know, me and Willy didn’t even want those eggs
We weren’t even hungry

I should have punched the ground
Now that don’t threaten nobody’s health
I should have punched the wall
I should have punched myself

So when I die
Feed me to the chickens
I said, when we die
Feed me and Willy to the chickens

From the album

“Paradigm-shifting and culture healing music as resourcing for next-level human stewards of planet earth.”

Elizabeth Wolff
Cultural Healing Facilitator

“I know that the future of music is in good hands with people like Seth around to be its caretaker. More importantly, I know the future of our world is in good hands.”

“The argument for the most influential human in the Michigan music uprising of the past decade may begin and end with one Seth Bernard.”
