Soothe The Soul
Feel loose / Like I felt then / Who else / Is gonna win it back for me? / I’ve been living my life as some other guy / I’ve been living my days as somebody’s son / Whose soul knows better / See I lose when I lose the goal / I lose just to choose control / What did I lose just to soothe the soul? / Just to soothe the soul / Well bruised / Still searching / One brain / Too many ‘shoulds’ still stamping on my name / Still got time, still got reasons to try / Peace only hangs in a purple sky / For souls who know better / I knew when I lost the goal / That I’d lose just to choose control / What did I lose just to soothe the soul? / Just to soothe the soul? /
Whiskey In My Veins
My best friends have gone away / My work soul is here to stay / My hope hanging is on thread / Like all my thoughts hang and drown my head / In whiskey / Solace for my veins / / Maybe I’m not built this way / To sit quiet eight hours a day / And maybe all these things inside / Can’t get out because I’m holding them under / With whiskey / Solace for my veins / / You know just that / Don’t want whiskey in my veins / To mollify these hunger pains / Still I’m just one guy / And I don’t have the time / For myself / / Don’t want things to stay the same / I’ve dropped the lines and made the lanes / Still I’m just one guy / And it’s hard to find the time / For myself / / / Don’t want whiskey in my veins / To nullify these things I gained / Still I’m just one guy / And I don’t have the time / For myself
I can’t change the way you feel / I can’t get to your source / But I will, I will I say / I can’t trust the highs you live on / I don’t buy all your lows / Did you make them up / Just to say, to say you got them? / We got no time / We got nothing left / You can’t make it, you can’t buy it / But you can fuck it up / These days you swear / you got it all / But I I swear, / I swear you don’t
Let’s all pretend we’re not liars / Let’s all pretend we’re not here to stay / Let me tell you I’m not living that way / Let me tell you I don’t want to go where / / You’ll stay until you start to sway / Still searching for something to save / / Let’s say we’ll put out our fires / Let’s pretend we’re safe from smoke and flame / Something tells me burning makes you happy / Something tells me you don’t want escape / / You’ll stay until you start to sway / Still searching for something to save
Velvet walls / Seeping through the backs of things / Nothing falls / Nothing ever stood up straight / Trouble that I / Don’t look for / Pain that I don’t need / Things that I / Didn’t plan for / Bring me to heel / Black as dark / And lacking heart / Souls in parts / Stretch though their ends / To where they start / My skin and heart / Thinning down the winning way / Until I pull apart / All the signs and clear the way / For the way I feel /
“Velvet walls are seeping through the backs of things. Nothing falls, but nothing ever stood up straight. Trouble I don’t look for, pain that I don’t need, and things that I didn’t plan for bring me to heel.” @hellocward ‘s original #lyrics for “Velvet Walls”. Off @ward.band ‘s new #EP.
