about

A mackerel sky or buttermilk sky describes a sky mostly covered by altocumulus clouds. The occurrence of these clouds is an indicator of moisture and instability at intermediate levels. this visually resembles the back of a mackerel.

The music industry and political landscape in America is currently showing a mackerel sky, as it is visibly unstable.

We're just the weathermen, reporting it as we see it.

lyrics

Spark the match, then ya arch ya back
heat rocks cause deep shock, heart attacks
make amends, take it in like a starving pup
when the dealer waves is hand and the card is plucked
double down on the Ace and 8's don't tempt fate
put the crown on the stage and wait, it's in place
for the luminous if you insist, I'm feel in numinous
who is this, you in this? That makes two of us
free will, remember that speed kills
i come for the cheap thrills and stay for the refills
wait til the beat build - then i conquer it too
I'm on 12th and maple where the monsters are due
wit a MagLight flashlight partially charged
and a scar i caught facing a larceny charge
terror in the sky guess it's odd being God
When it's over ask him is it always this hard

CHORUS

At the end of the day when my sun sets west,
and my clock slows down to a crawl

Ain't no battery charger, that'll recharge ya
that day, you have to miss that call

Shame that the so called experts look like fools
when the market is passing them by

Meanwhile all the believers appalled at egregious
acts under the mackerel sky --- go

Go

Go

Mackerel sky..go.

I am Chance Bordreaux in the 5th ward, i implore
you can see the light like french doors get sent for
equal opportunity impunity,
soon to be a melee cause i'll never let you ruin me
four-flushers at the labels wanna bleed me dry
A pretty penny, wooden nickel and measly dime
A politician pays a psychic to read his mind
I bet it's dirtier than three six lines
Tell, Would you trade capital for a bit of the power
Or your soul for 40+ Billable hours
you can make that at bike week with a camcorder
Worldstar
toss the baby with the bath water
The threat is just so Incredulous
Get ready set
Thought I had plenty left just wasn't ready yet
Keep slow, you know how that greed go
Cause it's done--Where we go, we don't need roads


CHORUS

At the end of the day when my sun sets west,
and my clock slows down to a crawl

Ain't no battery charger, that'll recharge ya
that day, you have to miss that call

Shame that the so called experts look like fools
when the market is passing them by

Meanwhile all the believers appalled at egregious
acts under the mackerel sky --- go

Go

Go

Mackerel sky..go.


Verse 3 (RoQy TyRaiD)

Big faces on projectors,
the crowd how they bow for respect like
thou art endowed to protect us
astound and perplexes
the crowd that enshrouds its intentions
somehow is endowed with protection
youtube's like a yellow brick road
better tip toe, hella precious info
ignorant brothers with dreams
thinking you run with the team
a stringless puppet, just some monkeys with wings
off the shelf you fly, propelled to new heights
cause of wax,
icarus fell from the sky, such are facts
light embrace it, time it changes
no hiding place for karma's primal nature
corporate attempts to destroy ya,
life's like chess and pawns are inherently royal, so
miss this guy with your minstrel rhymes
under the Mackerel Sky there's bigger fish to fry
let's go

CHORUS

At the end of the day when my sun sets west,
and my clock slows down to a crawl

Ain't no battery charger, that'll recharge ya
that day, you have to miss that call

Shame that the so called experts look like fools
when the market is passing them by

Meanwhile all the believers appalled at egregious
acts under the mackerel sky --- go

Go

Go

Mackerel sky..go.
