I will buy you a shake
I will buy you a shake
The windshields clear of frost, engine's hot, and the car’s heating up
And when your sweet tooth stops, I will even throw away your cup
It's non-recyclable
It's made of Styrofoam
I buried it in soil
Six feet underneath
The portion of your bed
Where your pillow rings a halo ‘round your head
Go to Sleep, go to sleep

I’ll buy you a shake
I’d give you anything
And before we’re underneath
Six feet of soil
When our blood sugar soars
I will still be yours
I’ll sing "Go to sleep, go to sleep"


from This One's For Tina, released December 14, 2013

Oxygen is required. Stomp if it gives you any trouble. To get the pistons turning, stir in some tambourines, buckets, shakers, cymbals, spoons, a tin can and as many floor toms as you can get your hands on. ... more
