The Middle

i'll reside in the middle
long as your good moves to it
big by little
you polished off the wine
and arrived at mine
but came to a while away

who am i to meddle?
i'm up high at night
and make like metal
but drop the drop
set out again
and i won't scare you that day

you won't be let on
a lit-up stage 'til one thing is settled
you script your show
white out the shit
and edit in a happy end

once you are out it's shadow
we'll meet to trip
and fall in a meadow
the grass awash
with shards of glass
so you bleed all the drink away


from Won't Let You Down, released July 2, 2012
