about

A song for my dad.

lyrics

i don't want to steal your stories
i don't want the years to waste your brain
sit in ruins and listen:
stenciled walls and portrait fading

two-fisted britishmen
toasted favor, fueled, and
illegitimate, the frame shifts
woke up shaking, premonition distant

a wife and daughter on the way
they won't let me see her
wife and daughter went away

money sees money made too late
sweating sickness shines as substance
money made saw eyes aflame
and raged against the summer

hopeless and consumed in fire
the wire hangs above the smoke, ascend
i won't make it to chicago
you don't know if i'm undercover yet

later on when breathing shivers
filters frayed, the files destroyed
smoke shone slivers in the night
and i could hear it in your voice

i'm abandoned way out west
hitchhiked home and up the coast line
jumping out of planes at night
hold my child in the front yard
tangled knots and burning tires
hold my child in the front yard
losing feeling, sweat and shine
hold my child in the front yard
won't back down or end the fight
hold my child in the front yard
