I watch the grass as it grows back.
I watch the rain as it evaporates.
I watch the sun as it goes down.
I can only guess it will come up again.

Hell on earth is knowing everything.

I watch a horse.
A little baby horse.
It has a face... I think it has a name.
I watch the sun as it begins to wane.
I can only guess...
I'll have to guess again.

Too much of nothing leaves us with very little.

I gain some faith and then I lose a limb.
I can only guess it will grow back again.
I watch the sun, I write a song I can only guess...
I guess there is no God.

Bittercup New Zealand

Bittercup is the personal catharsis machine of Callum Wagstaff. He hates himself and has found people enjoy the fruits of his shameful confessions, related in sweet serenades, intense outbursts and rarely anything in between.
