lyrics

To Hope’s rundown paper paper shack
Fire makes everything new
Carbon celebrating the wind
Fading images of you
But here comes the rain

When you cannot leave but you just need to go
Want to be deceived but you just need to know
Used to believe but a mind needs to grow
You know what to do you don’t need to be told

He had his regrets and not just a few
Bought a house and a car and that house had a view
For a trophy wife he traded his youth
From the top of the world there’s just one thing to do

Lived his whole life never left his home town
A sweetheart from school had a kid settled down
Drunk every night at the Stillwater Inn
Driving home eyes closed winding road he’s back again

Born with everything but a single concern
Unscarred and thus weak how else can you learn
Not born with a soul no that’s one thing you earn
Don’t be weak just this once light a match let it burn

Refined over the course of countless gigs in and around Boston, the 4-piece band’s performances combine driving rhythms and hellbent showmanship with a twilit vocal tour of family and faith, booze and the blues.
