A visit from the muse lights the fire in our song writing stove where we cook up all this tasty stuff.


I've been looking for my muse, digging around for something I can use.
I was left waiting on the line so I carved out myself a little piece of mind.

I watch the people walk up and down my street while the sun drops her clues down at my feet.
I grew my self a little ache and a pain.
I just stood there watching as Able got killed by Cain.

You move me, you are the muse for me x2

I came up empty a little too soon so I drowned all my sorrow in the light of the moon.
Peel off the label a little piece at a time.
What didn't fit in the suitcase we just left behind.

I found some silver in the bottom of the drawer.
Were there some there might be more.
I can feel my luck about to change.
Pull the trigger, turn the page.


I've got a long way to go so I'm leaving tonight.
A dollar in my pocket and my hat down tight.
You will look for me but I'll be gone.
Nothing left behind but this sad, sad song.
I've got a hole working through the bottom of my shoe.
Deep in my pocket there's a picture of you.
Like an old record stuck in one place.
Then a push and a shove and we're moving with grace.
