lyrics

hearts entwined, true lovers
shadows in the fall, elongate
rising - sliver of a moon

pale we glow in darkness
shadows on the door
entering slowly
unrecognizable

argument
throw fire-crackers
flashes in the calm
you light them, don’t you?
elevate the mood

bad for you
we’re going there
over time
systematic
mathematical
cyclical de-tune

here we are no progress
stagnant in the cause
we failed it, clearly
shadows to exhume
yesterday combusting torches in the cave
I see you mostly as a fading rune

bad for you
we’re going there
over time
untaken care

I resolved to write a letter
not as rude and twice as clever
all the points I failed to address
or covered in a veil of curses
our memories are revisionist at best
sure came apart in my hands

“Rainstick Cowbell makes searing music that’s intensely personal…[from] intense, clear-eyed rants to unhinged exorcisms. It’s exhilarating to hear music this raw.”
