lyrics

Breaking down barriers,
I walk the line.
Breaking bread,
Breaking through buildings,
Detrimental lines.
Prisons and poetry, they’ll
meet you down the porch.
Rangers filled with reason,
they'll show you to the door.

Oh they've risen, but
Who will listen?
It's poetry and prison for you.
Whistles blowing,
The debt that they're owing.
Poetry and prison,
Poetry and prison for you.

Going down,
meet the simple sinners,
They know how to really get it down.
The prayers of artists have risen,
They gotta bring a woman,
let them down.
How can you not like
the honky tonk prison?
Got chickens and banjos.
Like being outdoors,
in the mushroom visions.
Looks like I'll never make it home.

Oh they've risen, but
Who will listen?
It's poetry and prison for you.
Whistles blowing,
The debt that they're owing.
Poetry and prison,
Poetry and prison for you.

For you...
For you...

Don't bring me down,
don't bring me down,
don't bring me down.

Don’t bring me!
Don’t bring me!
Don't bring me down, down, down.
Cause I'm the real deal
and I'm gonna make you,
Drink bourbon on the bar.
If you leave me,
you'll never be more sorry.
Everything’s crisis now.

Oh they've risen, but
Who will listen?
It's poetry and prison for you.
Whistles blowing,
The debt that they're owing.
Poetry and prison,
Poetry and prison.

Poetry and prison.
Poetry and prison.
Poetry and prison.
Poetry and prison.
For you! For you!
For you... For you...
For you...

I play fast acoustic guitar, belting out powerful vocals, with songs about internal struggle and redemption from the depths of my soul. I’m good with that.
