"Cocaine Skin" as written by and Kevin Drew....
I'm collecting your letters
And putting them in a place
That you dont know

And these winter words are the next big things
We'll put on a show

So if you leave
You cannot go
It's your key
I guess I'm not

Some woman's face down with a mexican
On the side of the road
And she said its time for the strongest groups of coolness
To let go

So if I leave
Will you come?
So I dream
If they really want

It's a firing squad
It's a firing squad

Before I slept on my mattress last night
I smelled your clothes
There were flakes of skin beside your hoodie
I put them up my nose

And I know these facts are just replacement as
To not to love
And the blue eye'd clubs still have some memberships
But we'll say no

So lets leave
Then let's just go
It's a dream
A dream we'll know

They're a firing squad
They're a firing squad
They're a firing squad

    General Commenti don't want to do this song injustice, kevin drew is an amazing poet.

    certain elements of this song give me the feeling that the writer is trying to preserve a person, a loved one.
    or, wanting to hold on to the memories of a loved one who, may no longer reciprocate that love, not wanting to let go of those memories you try to keep pieces of them.
    the whole cocaine skin thing is amazing, maybe the high the one person got from the other.

    i could go on.

    the other verses confuse me, i have no imagination.
