about

I invented a new guitar tuning based on some of Lou Reed's old Velvet Underground tunings. "Terrible experiences makes one wonder whether he who experiences them is not something terrible."- Nietzsche I've struggled with heavy depression almost all of my life. This song is about that struggle, as well as, a specific toxic relationship that was very hurtful.

lyrics

Did you hear her voice
Rising up from the crevasses in your bones?
Living ain't the same, souvenirs of the trade
Beat me down for love in the mourning of snakes
False starts parade, spitting gas on my grave
Sailing down to the end for my body of shade

Only when you want it
Only when you bleed it
down

It's on the t.v. rip my heart from my sleeve
They love to talk when their mouths won't bleat
They scream your pain is a joke
So smile as you choke
Hiding out in the curtains everyone
Emptiness divides, soul lover is gone
Sailing out to the end for my body of shade

Only when you want it
Only when you bleed it
Down, Bring it down, Bring it down, Bring it down!
