Three on the backseat as we drive home from rehearsal
There's snow on the drums
The snare shudders like a cold ghost between my mittens
in the trunk, guitars slide like dead over dead
It's stopped snowing
We think we see foxes
I breathe a canvas on the window to write your name on the landscape
The sky is a grey flint from coast to coast with birds frozen in
Magic Trees share the dashboard with a Playdoh Jesus
Grapelli and Reinhardt lock horns on the radio
I draw a black skull on my jeans, not thinking, through to the skin
the headlamps come on at five
I miss you bad

    General CommentOne of the real, truely scariest songs I have ever heard. This is a chilling tale of a winter drive home from a band rehearsal and this girl misses someone she loves so, so much. Maybe that someone has recently passed away? Just a terrific, fantastic song. It's so, so real you feel like you're the one driving home in the snow. Wonderful.
