Concerning the journey from no one to nowhere

lyrics

Tall Eyes
Bigger bite than boy could chew, the sprawl’s a one way door
Works a corner out of need, then -

On his knees but pleas don’t speak past such tall eyes

Stuck between the gnashing teeth of city streets and holes
Tender boy admits defeat the fresh meat always spoils
Licking dripping concrete chops – it swallows our boy whole
Just admit that you fucked up turned…

One wrong right now sleeps beneath run-down high rise
Promises of problems fixed? Smells such bald lies
It won’t sleep prey’s too sweet and such soft prize
Boy missed all of this behind tall eyes

Good David thought he could “make it” found his drug gonna die young
Dear Sandy picked a bad alley couldn’t really run gonna die young
Meet Caryn what’s she repairing? poison her skin gonna die young
We all might follow an instinct but more than one always die young
All straining such tall eyes

… One one one one
One wrong right turn rewrites all our lives
Promises all of this will reprise
Don’t sleep stay on your feet chase some prize
Don’t miss all of this behind tall eyes

Well Esther feeling peer pressure challenges the sea gonna die young
This Taylor kills kin in anger and turns himself in gonna die young
Our boy whom city lights lied to spiraling out gonna die young
We all might follow his instinct and more than one always dies young
All straining such tall eyes
