"Cinder" as written by and Chris Phillip Bathgate....
Lend me your ears for a whispery cinder
And I lay on your lap how I left love limber
A drip from a kiss that was sucked from a lover
With a swish and a spit now condemned to the gutter

Well I shook and I shook
‘Til it splintered the bone
It was held in the notion
All sand once was stone
It split open now
It’s all pouring out
It’s there for the taking
Just gather it up
In your apron

So one day you find yourself inside an oven
Wicked and worn from the strangers I’d covet
Your karma has come cause your promise was rotten
So settle your debts for the heart you’ve discarded

Well I burn through every penny I saved
And I cold-cocked that sucker right down in his grave
It split open now
It’s all pouring out
It’s there for the taking
Just gather it up
In your apron

So lend me your ears for a whispery cinder
And my breath will bring that spark to an ember
And I’ll fan and I’ll fan ‘til it builds to a fire
And leave you with nothing but the hell I’ve inspired
