lyrics

What Matters Most

Your forefathers cleared these woods with their backs
Dreaming of cities and the lovely life you would have
Fast cars and an office in the sky
Their blood, sweat and tears left it all for you

Your great-grandmothers suffered through the years
Raising their boys up; strong backs, good bones, no fear
With axes in hand they flattened all of this land
And they left a playground all for you

But what Matters Most?
The wolf or the payload?
Jet planes or the buffalo?
Coyote or the high road?

Your good name is known throughout the world
It sounds like money, success, nice suits, hot girls
You can take it for granted, completely shut your eyes
You will never touch soil, they did it all for you

What Matters Most
The wolf or the payload?
Jet planes or the buffalo?
Coyote or the high road?

And you let your clean mouth touch my dirty lips
For I am an animal and you didn’t mean to do it
But you couldn’t deny something deep inside
That wants to be free from what is all for you


What Matters Most
The wolf or the payload?
Jet planes or the buffalo?
Coyote or the high road?
