into the forest...

into the forest

..think i'll take a walk in the wistful woods tonight
pay homage to the spirits, find the ghostly light....
deep into the forest: where the black cat howls
there i find my master: she suffers and she scowls

her eyes are cinnamon, her frame is so well built
and with a flick of her lashes she removes all my guilt...
don’t follow me sister, ' cuz i walk a wayward path
my soul might betray you, my words might be your epitaph...

in the thicket by the clearing by the old canal
all i got to say boys is feets don’t fail me now.
cuz there’s something about the quiet like a deafening roar
if i was what i once was i could not take this anymore...

i'll penetrate the darkness, throw caution to the wind
ill mail all these love letters i keep forgettin' to send
ill rage like a phantom, fleeing the life he once led
ill take back what i remember replace it with things you said...

Superstock Dodge

the clouds are threatening, there's evil in the air
the blacktop glistens, upon my headlight glare
7 years of bad luck, on a suicide squeeze
there's only one thing that will bring me to my knees

my superstock dodge....

it's the ides of march, the hush before the storm
i see you on your front porch, all cuddled up and warm
in one hand you've a locket, in the other hand a key
you smile at me so sweetly and thrown them down to me

my superstock dodge...
my red flamin' carb rockin' shift boppin' heart stoppin'
superstock dodge
