The Guiding – “Brand New Shoes” (C)2014/2015 Written by Adam Ashrafian Everything gets more muffled the deeper that I sink The voices shift to static telling me what I ‘ought to think But they don’t have this aftertaste, cause not everyone Can just make it out unscathed The nights they get longer now that the cold is setting in More time inside this cage left with a lion to contend With your enemies closer than friends What happens when that beast is all there is Now I’m falling back to someplace that I don’t belong Some where when I try to move it feels wrong In sticky mud, with brand new shoes So I’m making my way now up the road I got no gas money and wide, wide load I’m luggin’ this corpse to somewhere slow ‘Cause it seems like the place for me You know it feels like the place to be ‘Cause I’ve got nothing in these tired hands So I’m falling back to someplace that I don’t belong Somewhere when I try to move it feels wrong In sticky mud, with brand new shoes…

The Guiding – “Blue Hour” (C)2010/2015 Written by Adam Ashrafian These fields I’ve spent eleven summers on, have long since gone and died ‘Cause the water you gave me to moisten the land was filled with pesticide Now nothing grows there not even the grass, that used to cover the ‘scape But the hills still roll and the dust it kicks as the wind blows it away Her eyes they speak one thousand words, but they scream one thousand more And like a video game it was so surreal, the morning we had spent on board Of this old, lost ship that searches the waves for a crest to call it’s own Well we found it one and we gave it a name, and we watched it turn to stone So let’s watch it sink, deep in the ocean And here she comes, in through the kitchen Into a room, with just a bed ‘Cause that’s all she needs And I wish that were me… When the bluest hour strikes it’s chord and the sun reaches for the sky Twilight dances crossed our lips and it’s ambience grasps our eyes It’s at this time that I realize what I have been missing for some time So now I’ll mend this lack of vigor with a fix for you and I So let’s watch it sink, deep in the ocean And here she comes, in through the kitchen Into a room, with just a bed ‘Cause that’s all she needs And I wish that were me… And if this is what they call a good catch Then why do I want to throw them all back And if you don’t have the cards I lack I’m bluffing ‘till the end, I swear, I’ll never fold a match And if you think you reap what you sow Then where is my Eden, I’m so conceded I know And if I could write my own tombstone I’m pretty sure I’d fill it with joke after joke So let’s watch it sink, deep in the ocean And here she comes, in through the kitchen Into a room, with just a bed ‘Cause that’s all she needs And I wish that were me But it’s not.
