Blow me away I’ve been grounded And I belong in the clouds I’ll love you lights out Or not at all I’m finally awake I came for a killer I came for the thrill of A love that’s mine that hypnotizes What did you come for If not for the fire Deep down in the depths of us Vital as our blood A spark that lies in wait If you dig deep enough You can find the source to Cause you to ignite I came for the myth of I came for the mystery of A love that doesn’t recognize me What did you come for If not for the fire To light you up this way I came for the curse of I came for the kiss of A love divine that paralyzes What did you come for If not for the fire To light you up this way What are you here for? What are you here for? What are you here for? What did you come for If not for the fire To light you up this way

I can’t hear all the reasons not to go My restless mind’s a mess when I am static It’s a drug and I am rolling stoned The unpaved road, the fix to quell the addict Ever after Chasing down the pretty ones Right back to The place where I am running from In motion, stuck in motion I fear it’s Just my nature Checking off the reasons I should stay And maybe there is one to be my anchor But tethered to this place Is not a promise made If I swear I’ll always be there Then our end begins Ever after Chasing down the pretty ones Right back to The place where I am running from In motion, stuck in motion I fear it’s Just my nature Be here now Would rather be where I'm going And here doesn't exist if you never get there

Four on the floor As the shower head pours heat on me Praying to the god of sorry I'm sure she has questions for me These dead set eyes into dead set eyes Bloodshot and punch drunk But more drunk then punched up tonight Quiet collapse at the end of the show I was lost though I knew where to go Because if I never arrive I shouldn’t go anywhere else Stoned and alone And I learn that the cold can’t chill me But if this winter can’t kill me Well, it could surely end us And then relief In glimpses of certainty However brief Then the floor drops out under me Over, I’m over this fucking ouroboros now Counting the stars In the sky of a drywall canvas Constellations formed by accident I can’t see the north star The last time was the last time, and this time’s the last time, and then I can put this to bed How can I be everything If I can't anything more I couldn’t hide where I needed to hide But I tried how I needed to try The last of the loss I could feel Is storming in wild tonight Stare in the sunken-in eyes of a ghost of a shell of a half of a half of a man Saying what good can I be If I couldn't be better for you I couldn’t lie when you asked me to lie But I’ll die if you ask me tonight I’m going to die anyway I might as well do it for you

When the bough bends Further than it has bent It gives way to a growing divide I watch as you try To keep a foot on both sides Unaware of the fallout of pride In the place where Love rests peaceless Cheers to the sky And the lasting goodbye I’m taking the keys to my heart and your car I'll leave you behind Hoping you'll find All that you can't afford My love, anymore When the bow breaks Then oh, how it breaks There won't be a safe place from the storm In the place where Love lies wasted Cheers to the sky And the lasting goodbye I’m taking the keys to my heart and your car I'll leave you behind Hoping you'll find All that you can't afford My love, anymore

about

"Eyes drifting across graveyards of scratched-out phrases, sheets of lyrical poetry, torn-out notebook pages. The frustration, the progress and finally the relief of a puzzled-out riddle. 'Recognizing what makes you feel alive and going after it with ferocity,' according to his notes." - Brian Shamie of Chicago Sound Check, ChicagoSoundCheck.com
