Stray

Take a walk in the suicide weather
Gray walls might make you feel better
Stop to talk to the whores on Yesler
Mascara dripping they’re looking for shelter
Open your jacket, draw in the moisture
Chill your bones, save it for summer

Spill frustration into her stairwells
Howl along with her broken church bells
Breathe deeply of her underbelly
She has something she would like to tell you

Park your body on a bus stop bench
Bow to the bangers, try not to flinch
Buy a drink from the alley bulls
Don’t expose those hundred dollar shoes
Hand out the cigs like business cards
They might get you just a little bit farther
Rain’s gonna hurt if it falls any harder

Spill frustration into her stairwells
Howl along with her broken church bells
Breathe deeply of her underbelly
She has something she would like to tell you

City streets hide shattered souls inside
Around the fire, the wretch and the bile choir
Sing the city through her troubled sleep
City streets hide shattered souls inside

Take a walk in the suicide weather
Gray walls might make you feel better
Stop to talk to the whores on Yesler
Mascara dripping they’re looking for shelter
Open your jacket, draw in the moisture
Chill your bones, save it for summer
