You never learned no manners
Ten years at Southpaw Grammar
Still you start to stammer as we hold you to your words
Just can't fight the glamour

There is a dark and truthful glass
You won't take to what you're shown
Forever tailored, stropped and honed
His jaws are locked on your past 

She won't get no better
If we just talk about the weather
We were always cleverer than you
And now you'll never sever

While you were shackled to the tide
She kept a vigil on the shore
Our Lady of the Hidden Flaw
The girl with the trick inside

Crows' feet stalk the mirror
Secrets damn the river
Winter makes you shiver with all the things you lost
Still you can't forgive her

You know your name
Come when you're called
Prepare to fall
All things move to their ends

Drinking the night
Stealing the day
Burn out your eyes
Just to glimpse our light


from The Mess We Inherited, released February 1, 2016

We love a melody you can whistle, but we also love a fuzzbox set to strip paint. We will sweat for you! ... more
