B​-​SIDES - MMXX

I spy You unlucky creatures Crawling in the streets un-chaperoned. Made Of muslin and meat. The Day-leavers gleefully far from home. Sway In swilling Bohemia, These monsters all speak with silver tongues. “Have another whiskey baby. I bet they don’t dance like this at home.” ~~~ Away From such horrible things All grinning gin deceit on the cobblestones. You say Such innocent things. Say them only to me now promise won’t you. Said you’ve got a fever lately. Hot as a secret. I’ve been painting pictures of you, I’ve been painting pictures all wrong. Hell is in the streets below us, Devil took a room right down the hall. Get a little sanctuary And shut the window. ~~~ I can hear That band in my sleep With the never-ending beat and the seven horns In pairs Spinning circles for weeks. All rosy red cheeks and Yankee brawn. Got a sinking feeling lately Guns last forever And the western world has gone to feed. Miming hallelujah baby. I saw the devil beaming Money made the millions beg for war. I’ve been painting pictures of you, I’ve been painting pictures all wrong. Hell is in the streets below us, Devil took a room right down the hall. Get a little sanctuary And shut the window.

Held Once 04:02
Listen was all was expected of me as I Hurried on southbound Elizabeth St. I was Dressed like a Capulet Tired eyed and reticent. Loosen my tie on the passenger seat. She came On like a question mark beckoning me. She would Dance ‘round the maypole and vanish in the trees. She was Chock full of history, language and syncope, Dawned on me like an epiphany. I am not here. I am acting like a Thylacine. It is unclear to me to what end, to what end. I am not here. I am taller than I’ve ever been. It is unclear to me to what end, to what end. ~~~ …And I held you once On the borderline. I can still hear you breathing, the sight of the city appears like a foggy outline. …And you pulled me in Where your secret’s safe with mine. Where our personal history never gets in. We’re a boat that will never capsize. …And you kissed me long. I am spinning, shallow breathing, saturnine. ~~~ …And I held you once On the borderline. I can still hear you breathing, the sight of the city appears like a foggy outline. …And you pulled me in Where your secret’s safe with mine. Where our personal history never gets in. We’re a boat that will never capsize. …And you kissed me long. I am spinning, shallow breathing, saturnine.
