Tyrant 02:47
Babe I'm turning tyrant Turning into fear Swallowing your silence And bursting at the seams you opened the door said "I was wrong" I took your coat and kissed your arms Your weight presses in my chest Leave your mind behind And slip into that dress. I got a dragon inside my head In a few more weeks he'll for sure be dead Cold blue lips shrinking eyes Shift your frame babe and start your lies Your weight presses in my chest Leave your mind behind And slip into that dress.
Speak your name From your core Open your eyes Like a dresser drawer Cup your hands And Drink up Fast You live too slow Trying to die last Warm and Alone Open your window Just like your arms So long and strong Come back home To what you know Rediscover faith Rediscover hope Do you miss Those dark dense roads The infected air threw you Into throes Of a darkened labor Unforseen But a bottle of wine Won't help you sleep.
PSOS 02:26
Small Hands 04:20
Life and living, just ain't the same Call me a cynic or call me insane I'll be waiting for you to come home waiting by the station, all alone. Am I not what you expected Am I not what you need Am I a man who does not fit your needs are my hands too small for your dirty deeds Jesus christ you don't look so well I never seen you look so frail I know I said I was yours for forever but drinking all this whiskey doesn't make it any better But I'll be waiting now, I'll be waiting for forever. I'll be sitting down, drinking loud and hard. Staring at my wrists, wondering if they bend hearing about men, men who share my name Write on your arm, just how it feels to grow a year older, to reveal the marks on your neck, and the sadness in your eyes shaking knees when you finally arrive. A glowing orange hand with nineteen fingers one for each of your years. rested on my neck and dug into my back blinded both my eyes and won't come back.
The way she touched her wrist will haunt me scars guarded by her lips and lovers The sun can't walk beside you If you can't even say your name Look me me in the eyes when you say That you'll love me now and forever Man, I don't remember much but I do recall Your trip to montreal to see him a gentle loving boy you know I ain't got a gun but fists will have to do She robbed me blind and left for new york city her eyes were facing down at the floor Stare all you want but this train won't take you home back into my arms where you belong. your eyes towards mountains tall that shame my hands I am not a man who knows when to let things go Drinking is a way to pass the time clear nights are too hard when your not mine sit back in my chair and listen to the songs Of singers who have dared to claim their lives Thoughts and failed loves were their demise Nothing will repulse me more than the lies that I will tell the girls after you kiss them in the hair and say I love you too
Wild Plant 03:11
A Wild Plant you wrote for me Your eyes were dark but so were we Our hands are tied Our eyes are wide This drunken man in all his splendor sits alone and remembers Building castles, filling cracks, A sister's love, and a watered back. It was you who left as far as I can recollect I can't unload my fists into the shaking boy who slept with you Ghosts don't go down fast When your eyes are looking back Our hands are tied Our eyes are wide Your hands are the marvel in a child's eye swollen wide from crying tries Be my woman be my wife Hold my ankles hold our strife in your hands the marvel in a child's eye
God Love 03:49
Do you believe in God? His eyes, his hands, his heart. The way he walks and strokes his face Breathing lightly so you feel safe I've never known too much I drink and ride into the dust I believe what I can touch Dark guitars and a Lady's love. Paint me a picture with my beard darkened wolves who hide in fear Your lips are gods because I believe in things that stay close to me care for me. care for me, your king kiss my eyes and believe my lies teach my science and teach me sighs Do you believe in Love? Her eyes, her hands, her heart. The way she smells and tilts her head, the way she looks when she''s lying in bed.
Name Weight 03:00
Do you know my name, my dear? it starts with your hands, and ends at my ears. I cannot see through the thick of my eyes This is our way of telling a lie I know I'll be drinking the night before, just know that I love you, know I adore the way that you hold me when I sleep your hand on my neck and eyes on my chest. Your eyes get wide at the sound of my sigh As I stumble through the hills of your thighs, blind and useless though I may appear the weight of my body is heavy with fear. The floor is a sea, that I have prepared to keep you from leaving, to keep you impaired learn to speak my name my dear, keep your lips close to my ears.
Come down to the house where I sleep and die come down where the hungry wolves try to satisfy their wives Reach their throats up to the sky and ask the heavens why our words are meaningless without a man up in the sky I found love in the hills of my youth her winter had just ended and her hands were cold put them in my beard as i push my mouth to yours tell me that you love me, tell me I look old The man that i have learned to live has not been seen in days a shaven lonely drunken fool stands there in his place with his arms around his neck he will sit and cry staring at his broken shoes tears falling on his thighs Come down to the valley the place where i was born man, i don't believe in no miracles no more If my chest was to cave in would you kiss me 'till i died take pennies from your pockets and put them in my eyes.
Fist Hold 03:36
I held your fists inside my mouth kept them warm and out of the sun your fingers are waves roaring and near casually breaking in old wooden doors like sweats and tears I can't wait to grow gray and old complain that the youth never do what they're told remember my loves and think about god wait around to die and be remembered as cold I kept your wrists, right by my side for when it's too cold and I can't use mine oh my dear I know a man who loves like a king smiles with teeth as light as his skin smile for me I can't wait to grow grey and old complain that youth never do what they're told remember my loves and think about god wait to die and be remembered as cold
