I took out my pen and pad and set to write my manifesto It was a one line poem said dont let nothin ever get you low There's a hole open to heaven and I look straight through we were love drunk givin like we was livin on the bayou Who made these fucking rules and said that I was born to live by give em hell til I die dont bury me in no suit and tie cause I dont wanna work for another mans money yes sir no sir give it to me honey Had a revelation I was told a lie Live to consume work to buy and then die Oh but truth enters the mind one little word at a time and you cant shake the smell of the cat on the line Who made these fucking rules and said that I was born to live by give em hell til I die dont bury me in no suit and tie cause I dont wanna work for another mans money yes sir no sir give it to me honey Tell me Im alive show me I am human I wanna log off shut down and leave the room

Nimble dreamers dream away the misspent hours of yesterday cause if we had what we desire we'd spend our nights around the fire exposing lies and sharing truths on those that tried to waste our youth and every second of every day would be our own to spend our way they call us Dreamers they call us Dreamers late at night we write our names to remind ourselves of why we came we let it bleed down bathroom stalls spray-paint the monuments and marble halls tell me a story man tell me a lie I wanna believe in a future without having to try this place was supposed to be ours it took a long long time now in less than a century all we see is mine they call us Dreamers they call us Dreamers You got a thought and you think your thought might catch well I wish you good luck you cant put a finger on what's holding you back your heart is pure its your head thats fucked they call us Dreamers they call us Dreamers

Eighteen, unclean we were good at nothing we both come from broken homes lost souls, not gone cold drifting toward love to take hold and never ever let it go I know what you know but its so hard to let go the fear is turning into stone Its clear that were done but carry this emptiness with you your past will drag your future home Love and hunger! Love and hunger! Ten years later buried my heart in anger at all the time hunger would steal we walked hear on bridges patched up our cuts with stitches lets burn em down so our wounds can heal Love and hunger! Love and hunger! Let it go let it go let it go Let it go let it go let it go Let it go let it go let it go Let it go let it go let it go Love and hunger!

Its you and me hand in hand in a foreign land and that dont change when were alone here at home Its you and me taking hits like a heavy weight we go around in circles but together we try and make em straight Its you and me against the world you and me with the world Its you and me drunk and free at the Mardi Gras breaking silence, breaking hearts and breaking laws Its you and me against the world you and me with the world Its you and me against the world you and me with the world I just wanna take it slow its a wonder how you know that whenever my thoughts do stray they always find their way to the lighthouse by the sea to the shelter of our tree where the river flows free in the dream of you and me Its you and me at the bottom of a green hill just trying to find a little time to be still Its you and me against the world you and me with the world Its you and me against the world you and me with the world

Desires tossed and lovers lost empty cans and cold machines I can only hope to wake up before I die inside this dream when I get a little money Ill walk the talk and tow the line When I get Mine I used to love a different woman she used to say she loved me too then she ran off with some other guy yea she left me sad and blue when I get a little money Ill let her know that Im just fine When I get Mine The roads to home are long and muddy we never did have nice things tomorrow Ill look back on yesterday and drown the winter in my spring When I get a little money Ill buy back all of my lost time When I get Mine

I look out my window I see my town I see my people I see how they live and I see the danger the will to survive inside vacant houses the forgotten lives talk aint worth alot your life was lost before you ever copped politicians die the night dissolves to dawn and I could only love you til your love was all gone. I see the beggars I see the thief I see the king that rules the streets and i see the guardian I see his code a noble lone shadow who'll challenge the throne talk aint worth alot your life was lost before you ever copped politicians die the night dissolves to dawn and we could only love you til your love was all gone. I see my city I feel its love but I see its pain from my window above

Thirty thousand years ago give or take a few the sun came round and left again women did too sure as ages came to pass desire spawned a child now I can dial a telephone but my heart is still wild I want her, I want her, I want her, I want her she's mine Blessed are the ties that bind Blood is in the air tonight a drunken lust for fame how many of my accidents turn out to be my fate we wander through the monuments that claim that we are tame while beasts walk other animals on leashes made of chains I want her, I want her, I want her, I want her she's mine Blessed are the ties that bind A crowd will fill the marble square waitin to be told no one dares to question all the values that they hold they're wearin dark shades at night to hide the lions eyes they cover up the truth with smiles intentions are disguised I want her, I want her, I want her, I want her she's mine Blessed are the ties that bind

You are not regrettable it was always me I am the decider I take responsibility You are not regrettable the words I said were lies I was but a child then a boy cannot be wise You are not regrettable all I saw was red I wished that I was dying I wanted to be dead You are not regrettable I was far from home I've always looked for trouble I dont know how to be alone You are not regrettable I dont recall your name I wouldnt know you if I saw you do you feel the same You are not regrettable all I saw was red I wished that I was dying I wanted to be dead You are not regrettable you lifted up my vail I see the storm a comin towards rough seas I set my sail You are not regrettable all I saw was red I wished that I was dying I wanted to be dead

I watch the clock til its time to stop my dream and make my bed tuck in my shirt and go to work with the dream still in my head I pass the smiling business man and the beggars on the street expansive land of liberty but somehow I dont feel free See time is life and life is how you choose to spend your time little hand big hand tick tock round the wheel and then you die tonight Im gonna own my life under this bright full moon pick up a brick and let it fly cause I aint got shit to lose but the Piedmont Blues I always felt these legs were made to run through greener fields these lungs to fill with oxygen my heart to love what's real but Ill be damned I've been convinced to go abroad and kill God bless you Mr. president and your holy dollar bill see freedom costs cause it aint free to drive around your car at least were free enough to drown our feelings at the bar well stay inside its dark outs what they tell you on the news Im gonna turn my TV off cause I aint got shit to lose but the Piedmont Blues Does anybody out there ever feel the way I feel my calculations state we got the shit end of the deal cause time is life and life is how you choose to spend your time I choose to not let anyone decide how I use mine we were not born to work and live somebody else's dream but it cant run without the proper parts to the machine so cast the fear clean out your ears put on your dancin shoes perform an act of love tonight cause you aint got shit to lose but the Piedmont Blues

Was a tale without an ending the memory never left even what I dont remember I am trying to forget line em up bartender you know what I want is wet tilt the bottle toward splendor lets pretend we never left the full moon above the island the waves wash away regret the temperature is rising I think about you and I sweat desperation is a wild friend keeps you out all night left my troubles on the mainland think that Im insane man cause Im never going back Im a man I make mistakes why do the answers always come too late where I go its all the same learn to carry lies and live with shame Im not getting any younger today Im half alive but Im okay where I go its all the same find a bar and numb the pain Had so many roads to choose from took the one right outta town if you take a chance to come up you gotta let somebody down as I stare at peeling paint behind the bottles on the wall my mind is like this island being punished by a squall and I remember too like it was just this afternoon every-time I glanced at the clock waiting for you to knock the days are warm here on the island but the nights are so hot and home is an inconvenient song that keeps playing... it wont stop Im a man I make mistakes why do the answers always come too late where I go its all the same learn to carry lies and live with shame Im not getting any younger today Im half alive but Im okay where I go its all the same find a bar and numb the pain

about

Graveyard Lovers new album Dreamers puts them squarely on the map. It’s a really awesome rock record with a fresh signature band sound. Taking familiar tones into new iterations, this collection of musical statements will surely stand the test of time because of the impregnable solidity of the band members. They’re like a young boxing contender stepping into the ring with nimble footwork and devastating punches. Very Highly Recommended.
Album Review by Rustzine.com

"as if the best parts of the Saddle Creek Family spent a summer with the Pixies and burned their White Stripes records in a distancing ritual that only deepened the connection to some of the most viscerally passionate sounds of our time" (Crave Online).
