lyrics

Carried a picture of the girl he said would be his wife
She was a waitress, Cleopatra in a former life
The rolled to Raleigh in a search to find a better life
She had a temper that was sharper than a carving knife

Living their fictions
Making motions on their movie screen
Painting a backdrop with a soundtrack for their movie scenes
And in way… end of the day… it always fades away
But they were famous down in Venice for that half a day.

Hey. Hey. Hey. Yeah.

And it feels like another time
Nah-nah-nah-nah
Bones and dust and death and life
And it’s been more than a while
Bones and dust and death and life


The kitchen steps would creak
And she’d pretend to be asleep
And curiosity and honesty just made me peek
And once the youth is gone its easier to say your weak
She moved to Boston, on a nurses pay…
Her boy is three.

Hey. Hey. Hey. Yeah.
What comes after… you get what you’re after…

And it feels like another time
Nah-nah-nah-nah
Bones and dust and death and life
And it’s been more than a while
Bones and dust and death and life

The Trick Shooter Social Club is a place tucked just behind the beat. It’s a belief in the power of story and the sublime hip sway of a well placed middle eight. It’s cat gut, and pick guards and nods across the stage when it's time to go to the bridge. It’s acoustic, electric and reverent to its heroes. It’s artists, gypsies, showmen and shaman trying to get it right. It’s an invitation–to join. ... more
