"A Red So Deep" as written by Tim Kasher, Matthew Ryan Maginn, Clint Frederick Schnase and Ted James Stevens....
The furnace burns, the baby turns
She cries when she's hungry
The morning paper will knock the door
To interrupt their slumbers

Are you satisfied tonight, oh, trader's wife?
Does he neglect you?
Crawling bar stools and touching the girls
As you wash their smell from his clothes

They shoot the horses when they're too old to race
And so, my dear, is there room in bed for me?
The setting Sun has eteched lines upon this face
Shades of red of a furious defeat

Are you satisfied tonight, oh, trader's wife?
As he thinks to you:
"I don't know you anymore,
And I can't breathe in this apartment"

Sleep, my Sweetie, let the days expire
They've outnumbered you
Hold me sweetly, like the days we bled with love
A red so deep we sunk
We sunk...

    General Commentis it wrong to want to sing along to tim's songs about his terrible marriage and subsequent divorce? because if it is i don't want to be right....."I've decided tonight, i'm staying alive, just kicking and screaming"
