lyrics

Did you ever wonder if maybe it’s true?
The things they said, about me and you…
Did you ever wonder if maybe there was more,
Than table scraps, we been fighting for?
Did you ever wonder if maybe you were told,
Your heart is copper? Well what if it’s gold?

Cuz I believed a lie
I stood outside [concrete]
Begged to get inside
To Hold the Golden Blocks;
But I opened my eyes
To find all of what I [believed]
All up in my mind,
A prison without locks;
I’m leaving Fort Knox…

VERSE
Did you ever wonder if maybe we pursue,
Shiny objects, cuz there’s nothing to do;
Did you ever think that maybe life’s so short;
And what’s the prize, we’re fightin’ for?
When I look around to me it seems,
We’re chasing the riches, of our parents dreams…

And I believed a lie
I stood outside [concrete]
Begged to get inside
To Hold the Golden Blocks;
But I opened my eyes
To find all of what I [believed]
All up in my mind,
A prison without locks;
I’m leaving Fort Knox…

Maybe I don’t need this tie, maybe I should get a clue,
Maybe I don’t need this handmade Italian suit…
Cuz clothes don’t make the man,
A man has hands to make a life that lasts much longer
After piles of gold are piles of sand...

I believed a lie
I stood outside [concrete]
Begged to get inside
To Hold the Golden Blocks;
But I opened my eyes
To find all of what I [believed]
All up in my mind,
A prison without locks;
I’m leaving Fort Knox…

about

the BGP Tacoma, Washington

In the blue collar town of Tacoma, Washington, a patchwork of friendships forged in adolescence somehow managed to weather the storms of life. What resulted is THE BGP. Describing themselves as a 'modern Hall & Oates,' THE BGP merges session musicianship with a childlike joy for making music. The upshot is a soulful dance party that recalls a simpler time and place. ... more
