T.R.E.A.T.S. #13 – Affected Country Display

 

Everyone’s talkin, but no one has nothin to say

Talkin like hot air will blow all the specters away

Boredom can syphon a year to a day

 

Funnel clouds form from the cold breath of ghosts who remain

Draining the guilt down from heaven into Southern states

Rob ‘em of life, they’ll continue to pray

In silent speeches, keep others estranged

 

Strange early light, feel jaded, guess I’ll just kiss the ol’

Harmonica because it’s the lone thing that still takes my cold breath away

 

Ol’ Billboard Jesus with his picture perfect hair saves

Strapping young fellows from making it to second base

Arms are spread out, but he’s not calling “safe”

 

Girls with a twirl of their sun dresses duly attain

Power meant only for sultans and others that swing

Alpha begins where the omega wanes

Somethin ‘bout fathers who give more than take

 

Strange early light, feel jaded, guess I’ll just kiss the ol’

Harmonica because it’s the lone thing that still takes my cold breath away

 

Boy and a guitar, an affected country display

Shooting at stars, empty beer cans he mentions by name

From the Deep South but he doesn’t hunt prey

Who cannot kill cannot comprehend fate

 

Strange early light, feel jaded, guess I’ll just kiss the ol’

Harmonica because it’s the lone thing that still takes my cold breath

 

Boy and a guitar, an affected country display
