caught up in our plans high up in the air falling towards the sky so you know that we're scared seeing thru a veil we didn’t know was there confounded by god so we let it end there I figured it out & then I let it all go I did the math then I cut a check played you close to my vest stead of under my neck bankrupt, naked, & void is where we begin— & sometimes walking away is as good as a win I figured it out & then I let it all go I let it all, let it go made the money we made the money made the money we made the money made the money we made the money lord, we made the money somehow

more light! A crow in a storm: close & low, before we can realize coming close to our last room where we’ll toast, before the power’s out call us improbable now-- the problem is how how we all together now connected by our lungs the solution is laughable now-- dropping in, from off a higher wave letting go, of all the lies called happy family, the light that reflects from the moon subject to a nuclear scrutiny-- the sea is impassible now the problem is how how we all together now connected by our lungs the solution is laughable now the sea is impassible now ye/ah U LY SS ES U LY SS ES I’ve always been sung a song of the sea it’s a song that I wanted to sing I’d always been told the trouble it’d bring & I bought home trouble with me I’ve always been sung a song of the sea it’s a song that I wanted to sing I’d always been told the trouble it’d bring & I bought home trouble with me hahahahahahahahahahahahaaaaah

I crawled into the room & started to wet the floor violence was on her knife violence was all she wore all of the little things all of the put-it-downs all of the fear that brings the fear of letting go she crawled back to her way a lady sick on all fours & you had to watch her go you helped to clear the door all of the little things all of the let-it-gos all of the pride that brings the pride of letting go I never say goodbye goodbye as a warning I never say goodbye til its right & we can say goodbye goodbye til the morning we can say goodbye goodbye til the light all of the little things all of the let-it-gos all of the joy that brings the joy of letting go

she washed up on the shore looking for a home a place she'd never known before & she's made of bone not clay she taught me how to play taught me how to see a place I couldn't see before what if it all comes down to nothing? & nothing's everything we got? what if it all amounts to nothing? it'd be just what I thought she sang besides the shore a melody unknown a song I'd never heard before & she's made of smoke not air I see her ghost in there she takes me to a place I'd never seen before what if it all comes down to nothing? nothing's all we got? what if this all amounts to nothing? it'd be just what I thought the only plan is the lonely plan the only plan is the nothing plan the lonely plan is the only plan the nothing plan is the only plan

ok the scene is set we're waiting on the girl harvest coming in to a greater loss still our loss abounds we get lost in the cost come down from the house & let me touch your hair so soft at least that's what it means to me picture her last straw pillow for her head old dog in the yard waiting there for lead but you can't put a memory in a hole can't pay a debt with talk take off both your gloves it'll help to get you off at least that's what it means to me all the light interrupted at her fall a bird takes flight startled by her call o the letters gone wont be written back o the moments gone broken like her neck I knew a woman hadnt been long in town that was a woman broken like the rest

about

"‘Negative Balance‘ is the aural sanctuary I’ve been waiting 20 years for someone to build, although I was unaware of my need for it until I listened to it. After repeated listening, I find myself entranced and compelled...nearly an hour of enchantingly heavy and light moments blended into thoroughly encompassing storytelling...a genre-blending display of love for earth, wind, water, and creatures human or otherwise, rendered with enough fire to set them all ablaze and erase any assumptions you could make about this album." - Leanne Ridgeway, Riff Relevant

"At times passionate and angry, hard-riffing and fired up, at
times melancholy, or both at once on a single track (Symphony
for Reciprocating Engines (Love Theme from “Negative Balance”,
which holds us in thrall for more than 7 minutes), the entire
album packs a punch...Hennessy, whose
vocals are undiminished since his original combo’s brilliant
Dragline, delivers." - Will Dum, Muzzart

"Leave it to Godzillionaire to provide the aggressive soundtrack you need to head bang into oblivion...Big riffs and teeth rattling drum match the ear shattering howl." - Nathan Cardiff, I Heart Local Music
