Modern painters can’t decide why every time she smiles it’s just a dream of a world inside…There’s a world inside…There’s a drunkard picking fights with the bride on what we thought would be a new, new day…

You could always stay in tonight, and see if what the walls have been whispering is right…I mean, that shit is right up your alley, isn’t it?...A girl in every port, but the world still makes sport of you, saying –“Go find a reason…Call it Helicopter Season…Now, repeat after me – Is it for This I have hunted?”

Field and Stream: our second favorite magazine about new ways of living…Modern painters can’t decide…(don’t cry)

    General Commenti don't know how much meaning destroyer songs have to them, but the words all sound exquisite together.
    a review of the album This Night (by a dude named jason dungan from dusted) says about his lyrics:
    "His is the kind of poetry that only begins to accrue meaning once it’s been filtered through your subconscious, rooting itself in your own personal experiences. Eventually, esoteric lines begin to take on a subjective meaning."
    i'd have to agree with that.

    General CommentI certainly agree. He's wise for being able to put that truth into such accurate words.
