Hanging by a Hair (free) 02:06
Hanging by a string is a beautiful thing and its busy giving birth to all the birds that sing Hanging up there is a bullet in the air about to fall Dangling From a string is a treacherous dream and its busy giving birth to all the coins that gleam your doom and gloom and your fathers old broom can't win them all Hanging by a hair is a beautiful thing and its busy giving birth to all the birds that sing Hanging up there is a bullet in the air about to fall

I don't take anyone for their word I'm a tough bitch I don't make any deals with a handshake thats for fools Wanna make a Deal with me Baby ? Better sign it in Blood.

I'm so sick of me I hate you too I want to go to sleep and never wake up and I'm so sick of you. Play your trick on me You claim that you tried Well I see you smiling sitting right next to me but you'll have me crawling til' I cry. Break your switch on me for a man or a child I can feel your boot in the back of me and you'll have it kick me to the wild. Choose the time for me you say I'm taking too long I know I may not have done you right but I know that I have never done you wrong. Treat it like a tryst with me, paint me with lies I always upheld my end of the bargain and I gladly took you as my bride.

Sorry that I holler when I know that I should speak before I speak Sorry I'm so bitter when I know that you need sugar to be sweet.

Cool gentle breeze Blowing through whats left of me Through this wound That won't heal and leaves me hollow filled with what life I can steal Leave me to be underneath the Willow tree whose roots run deep Leave me be.

High and low 01:26
High and low to find This place in time This piece of fruit on the vine Are you disappointed to find Theres nothing left to hide behind Theres no more losing you mind High and low to find Theres nothing left behind to hide All those papers you signed You signed them in Blood.

See the Amber glow Watch the sun in its final throes Autumns leaves decay Springs dead seeds washed away See the Amber glow Watch the fire from a mile away See the amber glow Nothing there that I did not already know. See the Amber glow Ride the wind like a stowaway Feed the Amberglow and start the fire from a mile away

Nothing left to break and nothing left to steal the Jury is in Exhausted all appeal Lost my capacity for reigning in this deal You lose my scent Now won't you tell your dogs to heal I know you won't come running after me Ain't it easy when theres nothing left to leave Cut my heart out and pin it to my sleeve Ain't it easy when theres nothing left to leave No favors left to cushion the fall I try to miss it but it was never there at all Stirring in this barren room Shall my head paint the walls I try to miss it but it was never there at all I know you won't come running after me Ain't it easy when theres nothing left to leave Cut my heart out and pin it to my sleeve Ain't it easy when theres nothing left to leave

Growing cold and hard and thin No softness to let someone in I don't want to feed this fate gotta see there is still another way I could hold the heavens high If I could find a love in a strangers eyes won't you come and Rescue me I don't want to be alone tonight The Longer I push and the harder I wait Blurring the lines between night and day Don't know why I carry on Arriving to this empty place I could hold the heavens high If I could find a home in a strangers eyes won't you come and Rescue me I don't want to be alone tonight

Back at it 02:10
We're always saying the same goodbyes You keep on listening to those small town lies The only Keep us we we always were Staring back at each other Word on the street is I've got no pride Word on the street I've got the devil inside He's only there to keep my in line When I'm Staring Back at you I'm only Crazy when you walk by. I'm only crazy cause' you catch my eye I'm only crazy cause' we always try Not to be staring back at each other Its hard to know who is on on your side when everyones dressed like a rebel They keep on using the Secret Signs That used to be mine

Vampire Bats Scrabbling Rats Knocking Down my Door In their Party Hats Slip out the back with my travelin' sack Don't turn around Don't ever look back Either Way its a Blessing Either Way its a Sin (Chorus) The Easy Way out is the hardest way in All or Nothing Nothings gonna win The Easy way out IS the Hardest Way in Springtime Rolls With the Pollen and mold and it holds no promise to do as I'm told Run rabbit run find your mate past the cackling jackals that are guarding the gate Either way I get loose Either way I'm pinned (Chorus) Its a trembling Track When you've got no map Cold flows through your bones and its breaking your back Back to where you came start over again Back to where you came start over again Duck and cover Jump and Spin.

about

A dynamic , to the point, riff rife tour that twists through a siphon of rock, soul, folk, post punk, new wave, country, blues and jazz. This solo debut was written through hard times and is an introspective crack in the crust of a haunted mans head while planting the occasional tongue in cheek.
