Can’t Sleep
Light Shines in from the streets
A dog is lost
He keeps barking

Next room
It’s either a fight or a fuck
I’m out of luck
You don’t want me
I was born too late

My friends they all talked
I shrugged them off
I saw you and gold and fame
And I wanted it all
They told me
They told me

I’m not free

Tenth Floor
Hotel Shang-ri la
You’ll get my call
But you won’t pick up

And I know
I’m no longer welcome there
But I never meant’a
Expose you

I just wanted to sing
Of mercury things
My words don’t come out
The way I always mean
In my mind
In my mind

Can’t be free

Broke down
Waiting to see what comes next
Between what I need
And what I’ve got coming

I’m like a mole in the ground
No sight, No sound
Of all the pretty people
Who don’t want me around

Take me home
Carry me home

Putnam Murdock Massachusetts

Every Thursday night the Centre Streeters would gather in circle in a living room and evoke every damn lost, drunk, and brokenhearted song known to man... in four part harmony of course. Each time brought me closer and closer to the point of knowing no other way of life. My bio is isn't finished, but I've been gifted with humility. Sitting in a circle, playing songs is where the real music exists. ... more
