Artist's Notes

It seems like, no matter how much a person tries to plan for the future, life can sling us in a different direction. Beyond our control, we're wrapped up in situatuons and shot like a stone into confusion and disorientation.

Hard to hit a moving target!

Lyrics

Intro

Get ready,

let?s see whatcha? got!

Life's gottalotta little slingshots!  

More tension, tempers get hot, 

knots me up inside a slingshot.   

Verse1

Troubles toss me in disarray,

forces pinch emotions in a new way.

Quick decisions come under the gun,

sling at me what the future will become.

It?s comin?, ready or not,

no fun in aggravation headlocks.

New target, pressure is on,

decisions pin me in a slingshot. 

Pre-Chorus

We're just flyin? in the breeze 

with a feeling that I've felt,

we can?t change the past:

adjust another notch in my belt. 

Chorus

Caught up in a slingshot,

sometimes life's target's moving,

calculations ever-changing,

situations rearranging.

Can't rely on reason

adjusting to my fate's agreement:

complex, unappealing plots

that put me in another slingshot.  

Break

Tension builds,

stressinstilled.

Take aim at the will,

my ammunition kills...  

I'm just another stonelying on the ground,

always getting solitude thrown when confusion is around.

Wrapped up so tightly in illusions,resolutions that I choose

have been getting me routinely shot down...   

Verse 2

I?m pulling outta? socket from fate?s fickle pocket,I?m out like a rocket.

Deception is not a reflection of wanted direction in reality?s hold.  

Time shooting dreams and quickly proceeds to reload.  

Decisions abound to a vision around,likea stone growing cold.   

Pre-Chorus

It?s off in the distance,

a path of persistence

the strength of my scope 

does not show.   

Chorus

Caught up in a slingshot,

sometimesthe target's moving,

calculations ever-changing,

situations rearranging.

I can't rely on reason

adjusting to my fate's agreement:

complex, unappealing plots

that put me in another slingshot.   

Outro

It's comin', ready or not,

not runnin' from another slingshot.

Got a monkey snappin' me back

not cuttin' any kinda? slack.

Hard places trouble has shot

recoil sanity in headlocks.

Just take it, make it or not,

slingshots:

keep on slingin? me, 

swiftly flingin? me

?til my stone is in a plot...
