Greensky Bluegrass

Greensky Bluegrass is a five-piece American bluegrass/Country band founded in Kalamazoo, Michigan in Mid-2000. The band has evolved over the years, growing from 3 to 5 members, adding electric effects and touring with a full light show. "The whole notion of “traditional bluegrass” strangely remains a sticking point for plenty of the genre's faithful. Partly because of their name, every article written about the band addresses the fact that what Greensky does is “not quite” bluegrass. These depths have been plumbed. In fact, in their own promotional material, GSBG describes their sound as “their own version of bluegrass music, mixing the acoustic stomp of a stringband with the rule-breaking spirit of rock & roll.” more »

LOOK AT ALL THAT'S GROWN FROM THE SEEDS THAT WE PLANTED
I THINK IT'S SAFE TO SAY, WON'T TAKE A SINGLE ONE FOR GRANTED
IT COULD ALL BE GONE IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE
CAN'T STOP THE WHEEL, NO MATTER HOW HARD WE TRY

YOU CAN BUILD A CASTLE, 
BUT IT CRUMBLES TO A CAVE
FUNNY HOW A MONUMENT
LOOKS JUST LIKE A GRAVE
DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE HOLDING WHEN IT'S RIGHT THERE IN YOUR HANDS
NO MATTER WHERE YOU'RE GOING, WHERE YOU'VE BEEN
YOU MIGHT WIND UP WHERE YOU BEGAN

TOO BUSY MAKIN' PLANS, DIDN'T EVEN SEE IT HAPPEN
FELT SAFE ON SOLID GROUND, BUT THAT'S JUST NOT WHERE WE WERE STANDIN'
THOUGHT I WAS FLYING, I WAS FALLIN' TO THE GROUND
AND WHEN I HIT, IT DIDN'T EVEN MAKE A SOUND

YOU CAN BUILD A CASTLE, 
BUT IT CRUMBLES TO A CAVE
FUNNY HOW A MONUMENT
LOOKS JUST LIKE A GRAVE
DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE HOLDING WHEN IT'S RIGHT THERE IN YOUR HANDS
NO MATTER WHERE YOU'RE GOING, WHERE YOU'VE BEEN
YOU MIGHT WIND UP WHERE YOU BEGAN

LOOK AT ALL THAT'S GROWN IN FALLOW FIELDS FORGOTTEN
AND LOOK AT WE'VE LEARNED FROM LESSONS NEVER WANTED
SO ANSWER WHEN THE MAN BEHIND THE CURTAIN CALLS
OPEN UP YOUR DOOR AND CUT SOME WINDOWS IN YOUR WALLS!
