Written on an island and sour diesel.


I'll build the fire
You put out the fire
We exist it's perfect harmony
We'll till the tide
Watch us from inside
Writing out the elogy
You've gone away
Baby took a right turn and she crashed
bringin' you down
don't go mary jane
it won't be the same without you here
you've gone astray
baby took a right turn and she drowned
bring you down
just a stop to unwind
careful what you might find
we brought desire
thought it got us higher
a fix for tired company
shuttlecocks can fly
watch them in the sky
A lesson in psychology
