Lyrics by JJ Reed


Shadows on shadows
Climb the walls and get so high
Only to fall

Feathers in the wind
Get blown away every day
Every day

Like a stone finding home
Near the river overflowing
Getting washed away

Go with the flow
A scary show on the water
May get slaughtered

Running valleys through the hills
Against my will I can't hide
Ever keep still

Not like a freight train goin down
Over the horizon far away
No not far away

Here she comes dressed in black
Blowin' smoke like a heart attack
Or a Cadillac

Drivin blind through darkened streets
There we meet in the alley
Near the valley

Moonless night on the river
Maybe the wind won't blow
And I won't have to go

But they're running wherever she calls
And after all we could be
We could be

Shadows on shadows
Climb the walls to get so high
Only to fall

Melk is what you drink by the crick when you warsh your pellows.
It's also what happens when 3 Midwest natives who've been playing music longer than their parents would have probably liked find themselves connecting in the Athens art scene.
Jacob's from Johnstown, PA and takes pictures at OU.
JJ's from Athens and has written more songs than Bob Dylan.
C:/Lee's from Columbus and writes bios.
