My two weeks on the eastern hillside
Washed the grime away
The other fifty layered on
And I will sleep under constellations
Double stars of information
Coyotes singing- howls away
But it's a lost connection
So this time I'll never leave

Gonna stay on Ellis Mountain
Count the pine trees
Nail and hammer- I have home
Overtime, unforgiven
Pipe fitting it's not living
Let the city have it all

With my hands
I've built epic structures
With my hands- my hands
Promise lands suffocate in steel and mortar
With my hands- my hands
'Cause it's a lost connection
So this time I'll never leave

    General CommentThe city is getting to much with it's 'steel and mortar' so he's gone to spend some time at 'Ellis Mountain' to 'wash the grime away'.

    Great track, a real toe tapper.
