Vulture Boys 03:24
Now all of my lovers Are on a first name basis I'm all out of time All out of faces Now they devour each other But they once devoured me And in my last line of defense I'm gonna praise you for your incompetence The downward spiral Was not mine to own It was your own You made your home The trap is set The soldiers are all deployed Release the hounds For the vulture boys

Shadow 06:14
If he just gave up If he just never tried again Would I feel this way? If you just gave up As much as I gave up Would I be where I am? Why do you want this to be When you've been so bad to me? It would take one word Yeah, just one blank text You'd read between the lines Waiting for a miracle Hoping for a missed signal We'd be going one more time Why do you want this to be When you've been so bad to me? What you want me to be Is just a shadow of me
4.
Love & Lust 01:49
Sweet sixteen In a world of color You brought me life I brought you cover Seventeen You were no lover And then you were And then another Back and forth And up and down Through love and lust We come around Eighteen Boy, I thought I'd died To everyone I lost my mind Nineteen Hundred Eighty Nine I love you too You're so unkind Back and forth And up and down Through love and lust We come around The stars in your eyes Were the stars on my arms The stars on your back Knife in my back

Ocean 04:54
In search of love, I show my face But no one wants to see it I draw my breath and sing along But no one wants to hear it I'm treading water In an ocean of you Filled with doubts That I'm trying to undo I feel it's time to make this clear Fuck, you all know why I'm here The broken hearts were never fun And every time I found the one I'm treading water In an ocean of you Filled with doubts That I'm trying to undo I circle back and ride it out And once again fill up with doubt I get on track and live without Your heart of love keeps calling out I'm not looking for a friend Just to mask this pain again The last one took too much of me I can't escape his gravity
7.
My Best 02:11
I'm a little past my prime this time So it's funny to see you coming around again What more do you want from me? What more do I have to give? I'm a little short on rhymes this time I'm never gonna be like I could've been What more do you want from me? Now that I'm all out of life to live I'd speak it like Marilyn Monroe I was young and in love Oh, what did I know? If you can't treat me right Just like all the rest Why would I want you When I'm at my best?

about

I didn't plan on making another Shoes album anytime soon, but the feelings & songs came to me in a weird 48 hour period, resulting in this short suite of songs called Vulture Boys.
