It says exactly what is and what happened and what's left


A liar and a thief are all that name suggests to me
A wire through the deep still brings the future by degrees
Magnets with their cache of that flashing light and heat
I think the best spot for these thoughts is somewhere underneath
That sky that's always been above me
Half drunk the other half apathy
Left here less than a memory
No one is ever coming back for me
Where the grass was warm and the water is cold
Our love was strong the nights were slow
That was when we understood
Our love was right and life was good
When life was good and we were young
It left a mark it made me numb
My eyes were red your eyes were green
Now they're all closed crushed up into dreams
Those dreams they're all over now
No way you and me are getting out
Grab a glass, buck up and drink it down
And all I know is the thing we chose was strong
But not a remedy and me are going down
...drinking in the Underground


from Pet Taxi to Hell, released December 15, 2016
Written and performed by the American Liquors. Devin Henkel-Legare plays a champagne Strat and plays it well. Ed Posega sings, plays a Les Paul and is proud to know Devin and Chris Borresen who drums on things and Joe O'Brien who tries to make sense of it all with four strings.
