This song wasn't going to be included on the Monsters In Rome album originally because of some copyright issues (some bullshit stuff really, I wrote the friggin' thing, so I still can't believe there was trouble with it).

take me skyline
to the country in the rain
through the muddy fields
to the house i've grown up in
somewhere in the dusk
her voice still cries my name yeah

take me snowflake
to the falters of the hills
the season it says nothing
so i take it all it feels
you see out there is dark
there's nowhere you're going today no way

cos you see outside
a full moon's trial
takes me down slow

show me lover
what it is you want to feel tonight
i don't know what i'm doing
so i'll try to get it right
turn over love
now it is your turn to shine not mine

caged in dark
your heart denies
taking me down slow

forget about the changes
or what life was supposed to be for you
shake it off quietly
look at all the young boys
breaking all the car windows with spark plugs
it's a shame
they should fly

locked and tied
police cars
taking them down slow


from Monsters In Rome, released May 5, 2010

Drawing comparison to such imaginary singers and performers such as: Tom Waits on high heels, a more scrupulous and much young ... more
