To Reason Why

I don't remember what you told me late last night
But it seemed to still be weighing heavy on your mind
Letters to your parents letters to your friends
Letters like you'll never speak to them again

We all took to the streets
All these discussions of sin… Read more


I've lost my time
Lost my frame of reference

All the things I've never said

Well strange the way it seems
I changed horses in midstream
And it took a while to get back to my pace
Then the stream changed up with me
And I'm broken company
And I hate the way it slides… Read more

Eight-State Arms

 Saw you called this morning
I couldn't find my phone
I was on a couch in Boston
You were sleeping all alone

Your house is cold and empty
I live from town to town
I forget the way time…

Black Irish Heart

Well the clouds come for you today
Washed the shine right out of your eyes
And it's cold cold cold by your fireside
And you don't feel no hope along the way  

Got a demon riding on your shoulder
Filling… Read more
