about

Cigarettes and Milk Portland, Oregon

I'm too poor for decent quality. Everyone says my moniker is gross. I like lo-fidelity. I drink too much. All proceeds go toward rent to keep me off the streets.

Track Name: Vagabond
I want this one in books
Before the seasons change and I lose
I kissed your lips and parts
That make you, heaven thank you

I just got back from flying 12,000 miles
I think I was drunk the entire time

I've seen the desert rain
And the ocean dry
I taste the wind
And hear the stories they left behind

They left behind

She wants this boy in chains
And by boy, strictly speaking me
I fought facades untorn
Now ripped and left wide open

I just got back from another woman
I think I was drunk every moment

I've seen the desert rain
And the ocean dry
I taste the wind
And hear the stories they left behind

They left behind, for you
Track Name: Lianne
Well I bought a bottle of whiskey
Looked at Lianne, and oh she loved me
But not as much as she used too

Well I left, out from the office
Went to the bar, to chat with them others
And I met a girl, who asked for a one night stand

It was nice, but I told her I'm a married man

Looked at the clouds, under the willow
Back with Lianne, but lord I don't know
I'm pretty sure she's got some plans to go

And if she leaves, then she ain't coming home

I woke up and the bed was empty
The pine floor was cold and dreary
She'd packed her things and all but left her scent

Well I left, out from the office
Went to the bar, to chat with them others
I saw that girl, who asked for a one night stand

It was nice, I took her home to bed

Still there, head in the pillow
When Lianne, walked in and shrilled, oh
She saw the girl from the bar underneath our sheets

And she left, and ain't coming home to me
Track Name: Stories and Poetry
Well if I ever have a daughter
I'll name her after a season
And if I ever meet her mother
I hope she stays without reason

And good god I
Am a drunk, and an addict
I live in the attic of a
Condemned house

I keep a journal
Filled with scribbles and dabble
In the middle of
Stories and poetry

Cause one day I'll get married
And I'm only preparing by
Doing nothing at all

Well if I ever had a brother
He'd have a name without reason
And if he were to be anywhere at all
It'd be right by my side doing the last of my lines

I am a drunk, and an addict
I live in the attic of a
Condemned house

I keep a journal
Filled with scribbles and dabble
In the middle of
Stories and poetry

Cause one day I'll get married
And I'm only preparing by
Doing nothing at all
Track Name: Hollywood
She was sexy and smelled like brandy
Smoked hard on a cherry cigar
Attracted everyone with the way she speaks
And the way she swings her hips

Taking hundreds in cold hard cash
Making movies with her bare flesh to grasp
They treat her just how she wanna feel
As they a'keep on turning that wheel

She was on her way through hollywood
Hit like a rhino but white like snow
Blood coated film on the end of dolla bills
Ashtray filled to the brim with cigs
Each wall stained in the heart of it's paint
Dim yellow lights with a jazz track that ran it's pace
A scratchy lullaby on continuous loop
Bottle of jack kicked as she slipped from her noose

Her last photograph on front page news
But you can still watch her body move
Autumn hair and an auburn dress
Cherry lipstick is how she looked best
Track Name: Antarctic Sea
Sail off, through the Antarctic Sea
The clouds break apart like ice sheets
Well no one needs to know what we're here for
Took a walk past the midnight to see if you were

Awake, girl let me in
I'm tired of the secrecy where it never began
Let the city roll out, christen my soul
The winds have drowned in whispers that you ignore

Take me if you should
But I know that you never will
And take that shit you ruined
I'll never need this again

Steady goes, just as steady comes
Let her take the steer and course her own
Sorrow never smelled so right
And it tastes even better now that I'm alive

She won't let this go
Carry on if you don't know what I'm good for
Tonight is beautiful now that you gone
Yet something seems so off

Take me if you should
But I know that you never will
And take that shit you ruined
I'll never need this again

Yeah...

I found that true love tore my heart
Like paper out on the floor I bleed
Her skin is soft like coconut milk
Touched the walls with bloodstains I'd never clean

I yell at nothing through the window and the people walking by
Think I'm going nuts, but I'm really fucking not
This is a moment I'll never forget
But I can't remember what it's even about

Look at me I'm fucked
