Words & Music by Cory Seznec

lyrics

Watching you watching me, watching you watching me
Trying hard to see, trying hard to see
Ain't no writing on the wall if you don't know how to read
Ain't no need for notes at all, just play the damn thing
Ain't no need for history if it keeps repeating

Hawk on a haystack, prisoner of hope
Seeking its prize on the golden slope
But Ain't no spoils for the victor in a land of barren dirt
Ain't no aces tucked up your sleeve, if you ain't got a shirt
Can't keep your ears to the ground, if there's nothing you haven't heard

Watching you watching me watching you watching me... Hawk on a, hawk on a haystack...
