Track Name: Midwest Clothes
God gold grass waltzed artless and low
I stood straight in that light air
by the chalice pond that swallowed the sun
and spit out a sky so bare

I watched with eyes auspicious green
Now unhinged blue and stone
You said the midwest suits me best
but the south got to my bones

The mountains stretch- chipped antique teeth
A primeval cry of praise
For a twilight glow, cactus flowers and gold
An alluring horizon haze

Lungs full up with open sky
Now i breath your dark smoke draft
And you begged you begged you begged come home
And I gave in at last

The whole world felt mine when the blue moon rose
those evenings my release
but when the morning dew blessed my toes
I thought I was ready to leave

Where I lived with buoyant heart
Now my chest could sink a ship
You said it's just of my defects
But I've faltered in your grip
There I was what you craved but lacked
Now we live face to face
You said you've lost your faith in me
Well, I've just lost my faith
