An Extra In A Cowboy Film

from The Green Key Will Let You In by The Riffbrokers




Your lips are crowded, i cant rise above the din.
needles stick my heart and sting like open cuts and gin.
like an extra in a cowboy film
the arrows from your hills are gonna kill me
the stage is set to burn a couple hundred or so.

Your past is daunting
a need for an online truce
its just a mercy killing deleted in a last line mood
Who’s the sheriff of your town?
For whom does your siren sound
The stage is set to burn a couple hundred or so.


We’ve been tryin to vibrate and be happy with the odds
Tryin to make some noise and still get off
It seems silly to protest, too much darkness left to shake
You crowd my mind, just like my Hemingway ache.
