Chain Lincoln

"Chain Lincoln"

Lay the hilt down
Time and again
It's better to cede
Than drown

I ain't a martyr-man

Ain't that the truth. Covers make you feel vulnerable. Original music makes you feel endangered.

This is an easy-going, acoustic tune. It sounds like a country or soul song; I haven't decided which. Enjoy,

Terminal

I'm pretty sure

You tell me "sure"
When I say that you
Pull them to the moon
And send them burning
To the womb
The tired quartet you conduct
Scores cigarette-hot conduct
You're...

Smelling like
Orange peel

Knowing I
