about

Dog Dog is the first single from the midwest Post-Hardcore-jazz-Rap 6 piece known as Ursa Major. Its about the struggles of coming into adulthood and learning that you are the only one who is responsible for your actions.

lyrics

Before I sleep, I wish this: I was invictus.
I'm kissing my canvas. I'm painting a picture, A vision that's cataclysmic.
A quick tip: don't miss it. Make sure you kiss it, and baby just listen, wear your finest lipstick.

Trying to make a living off the rhythm I been given,
My commitment to the written isn't worth a pot to piss in.
Getting it lifted is taking a minute, I'm (still) sitting
I don't mimic what I'm spitting. I'm guessing I don't fit in.
I'm giving it all I can till my sweat is dripping. My blood, it quickens to thicken, I'm gripping and i just started slipping. You think I'm giving in? that's strictly fiction!

Have you ever seen a grown man in public cry?
A coworker, road worker, or any type of guy?
And wonder what he was holding behind his eye?
Most times I find that the answer is no, that the answer is no! Neither have I. Yeah right. That's me inside.

Gotta find a place to go, get a pair legs call that a home.
I am always primed to roll when I know my vibes will shine the most.
You know I can't control the quickness in which your addiction grows.
You got habits like an addict and you know that this dick is dope.

So...I know that if I don't bleed then I won't succeed.
I need to be the meanest I can be with this ink.
I want em to say "who is he? Doing his thang in them skinny jeans?"
Moving like a breeze and he's doing it with ease...
But to me I'm just planting seeds
They'll say "Maybe he's right? Fine, I should change my mind and try and find an to ear hear what he sees!"

Please, Somebody see what I mean! Touch what I've seen! Feel what I scream! Taste what I dream!

I find peace within this lawless state.
No, wait...
I find peace in nothing. I must be missing something.

Is this the spiral?
Or am I just falling?
Am I even moving?
Or is this called stalling?
At this rate I'm crawling.
I want to brawl with the one who paints it all but as I recall the dog tries to maul my fingers off!


Is this the spiral?
(Is this the spiral?)
Or am I just falling?
Am I even moving?
(Is this the spiral?)
Or is this called stalling?
At this rate I'm crawling.
(Am I just falling?)
I want to brawl with the one who painted me but I've been drawing. (Am I just falling?)

Is this the spiral?
(I am who's painting!)
Or am I just falling?
Am I even moving?
(I am who's painting!)
Or is this called stalling?
At this rate I'm crawling.
(I'm the one drawing!)
I want to brawl with the one who painted me but I've been drawing. (I'm the one drawing!)

Have you ever seen a grown man in public cry?
A coworker, road worker type of guy?
And wonder what he had behind his eye?
Behind his eye?

Have you ever seen a grown man in public cry?

And wonder what he had behind his eye?
Neither have I! That's me inside!
