about

Buy me a beer sometime and ask me what this one is about. Buy me two more and I'll tell you.

lyrics

Tiny murders collecting in my brain.
Worry leaves like a storm drain are flooding out of me.
I imagine you were scared when the devil took you by the hand
and I bet you couldn't count the stars up in the sky.

I knew you my brother, before they handed you a name,
In the vivid flowing medium of sleep,
you were howling out moonlight
howling over the streets
chasing down the drainpipes
and barking up trees.

Well here I sit, here I lay,
forever in a dream.

We faced our fears on The Ring of Fire at the Frontier Days fest
but broke out minds, dwelling, while we laid our friends to rest.
I image you were scared when the devil took you by the hand
and I bet you couldn't count the stars up in the sky.

You were howling out moonlight
howling over the streets
chasing down the drainpipes
and barking up trees.

Well here I sit, here I lay,
forever in a dream.
