Written at the end of June 2016 I wanted To record it quick and collaborate with my old friend John Wade who's art work i have always admired. I thought maybe his drawing could lend the song some depth and fill in in its sparse arrangement and elusive lyric with a standing frame of his curiosity for bleak psychotic moments.


Diesel Days Of Summer

slow and still that heat is so slow and still
Wait until will this ever end
gasoline smell comes blowin on the wind
the diesel day of summer creeping over my skin

big ol sun you always seem to bring this on
my favorite greys seem to have lost their way
cant remember when i got so off track.
the diesel days of summer pull the pale from my back

when your around it always seems to bring me down
the longer days with their attitudes
in my youth i couldnt get enough of you
but i have changed

push and shove with me and you its always push and shove
I like picking fights that i'll never win
heat rises off the asphalt road
the diesel days of summer pavin over my soul
gasoline smell out blowin on the wind
gotta let the diesel day of summer creep back in
