Carving Belt 04:32
It comes around by your town. Just slide it on make sure it fits. You use it well then you discard it. You cut it deep. You cut him deep. Moving slowly carving. Just like salt on an open wound.
Midwest 02:52
Say a word that does not cinder. It’s all burning everyone’s still cold. I can see what’s happening the truth is twisted. Everyone’s older then the story changes. It’s gotta change. Where does it come from nobody knows. I found it without lifting a finger. Words always seem to turn everyone’s feelings. I’ve had enough. We’ve had enough. Sunshine shine on me.
