about

Music for the short film, Perry's Grind.

lyrics

Tell all the stories
Believe all the words
Then you get a moving on
You look down at your watch
To try and catch the time
But the time you thought you got was gone

I ran around
In circles
Like a dustdevil out in the plains
Tearing through
Barbwire fences
Brown water running through my veins

There was a drought for so long
I forgot the taste of rain

Aint nobody told me that life’s a dirt road
Your boots get muddy and your heart gets cold
Try and pick up the pieces and mend up the holes
Brown water, brown water save my soul

Looking through the shadows
Crawling through the night
Trying to get warm inside
But the cold wind blows
In the back of my mind
So there aint nowhere to hide

Watching my steps
Or are they watching me
On this gravel that’s hot as a coal
But there aint no point
When the suns burning down
Just gotta let it roll

It cleans my wounds
I let it take control

Aint nobody told me that life’s a dirt road
Your boots get muddy and your heart gets cold
Try and pick up the pieces and mend up the holes
Brown water, brown water save my soul
