Down Slow 03:08
take me skyline to the country in the rain through the muddy fields to the house i've grown up in somewhere in the dusk her voice still cries my name yeah take me snowflake to the falters of the hills the season it says nothing so i take it all it feels you see out there is dark there's nowhere you're going today no way cos you see outside a full moon's trial takes me down slow show me lover what it is you want to feel tonight i don't know what i'm doing so i'll try to get it right turn over love now it is your turn to shine not mine caged in dark your heart denies taking me down slow forget about the changes or what life was supposed to be for you shake it off quietly look at all the young boys breaking all the car windows with spark plugs it's a shame they should fly locked and tied police cars taking them down slow

one last line you get girls with cigarettes everything's gray but everything's black to me maids on novocaine, boys on caffeine pills everything feels like everything's burnt insanity hard core burger place, lifeless colored words all i know is all that i feel, exploding dreams worthless enemies, busted upper lips backboard momma, her eyes popping out like candy cream and i'm afraid not scared and i'm afraid not scared treat your sanity with insanity and keep the face that takes the blows of foul wind captain overboard, lights on neon streets they fail to comprehend the state i'm in Bombay fireworks, midnight elephants frozen music that can't defy reality Elvis on the news, baby just kill the blues i don't wanna feel when life drips out of me when i'm afraid not scared afraid not scared yeah i'm afraid not scared oh i'm afraid not scared
