"Die For You" - Pretty Bones by Muddy Ruckus, 2016.


The storm is raging on a dead end street
The jumper cable moon won't let us sleep
On the back porch, it's three a.m.
Candle light warms my hands.
Kicking dust, cobble stones, falling like rain
And the ghost in the rearview mirror brings nothing but pain
Wandering minds settling down, wondering my eyes moving around
Catch myself once again

*If i'm lucky and the morning let me in
Aint no lover in the world with a hole in their hand
That won't die for you, because it feels good to them
Gonna crumble on down to you, poke through your skin
In your bloodstream, swim with you
So if I were you, I'd turn the outside in
If I'm lucky and the morning let me in
Aint no lover in the world with a hole in their hand
That won't die for you. **

These siren claws cut deep and they moan like a motor
Etched a scar on the back of your heart on a dead end street.
Your injuries, lick em down, stomp your feet come tumbling around
Catch myself once again


Try to understand, try to understand at all
With a foot in your mouth and a fist through the wall
Had a lovers quarrel on a dusty road
On the railroad, take me down to Mexico
Gonna jump in the river, gonna run through the woods
This lowdown living never did me no good
They'll be playing all the blues on the radio lines
Just another old song to help waste your time.

The back beat on the street gets balled up in your heart
And the southern breeze cleans out your dreams
And turns teardrops into art.
You smell the storm coming in, that weather vane turns in your head
Liighting bolts sleep in your bed.
