Trash, like beauty, is in the eye of the disposer. One persons trash is another ones treasure, be it an object, an experience, or even a person. Belaver’s “Trash" tells the story of embracing despair and shifting perspectives to see the beauty and find peace in trash situations.

Track Name: Trash
That was life back with the houses
That was life back with the cars
Where we thought everything's roses
Where we thought everything's ours

There's no light until a darkness surrounds us
There's no right until a wrong gets too large
We're on fire until the water rises
We're all lost until the flow of blood clots

I want to live in the trash
I want to live in the garbage
I want to live in the filth
Bury me in a landfill
Cause trash lasts forever

I want to sail to trash island
Plant a flag and call it heaven
Build a house made of plastic
Where I'll live and I'll keep all my secrets
