lyrics

Dogeared and worn out and beat down and hollow
Sunburned and stove in he walks by and won’t cast a shadow

She stumbles and staggers out into the daylight
She’s crossing back over the bridges she burned in the last life

Quarters and dimes at the gas station counter
Buy one more corona to nurse through the night in the ditches

And she bolts throught the briars and the brambles and the thickets and her hearts pounding wild it’s an animal got flushed by a brushfire

Pear blossoms snow down and drift by the fences
And bury the place where all of the pain and the hurt is

A dude in a wheelchair floats a wheelie on the sidewalk
As he waits for the bus with the patience of a saint he’s got forever

As you slip off the cornice and you trip down to the ground you hold their faces in your mind calm and gentle like you held them all as newborns

Her father he died before she can remember
Of course she still misses the things that she wishes he’d told her

Pear blossoms snow down and drift by the fences
And bury the place where all of the pain and the hurt is

Finding the thread that leads from The Cars to The Beastie Boys to Van Halen to Prayers, he tells a long, beautiful, cross-cultural, multi-generational story. Hollier’s band King Ropes is doing much the same thing. ... more
