The Freeze 03:35
Won’t you come and freeze In the shadows of my love? I know it’s hard to breathe In the shadows of my love Believer be deceived In the shadows of my love And I know it’s hard to breathe In the shadows of my love

She come in the night Watching him sleep And maybe she’ll find Something to keep She’s back in her apartment Before her tea is steeped Back in her flat Before the tea’s steeped Roof access She just wanna watch Watch as he dream She don’t mean no harm She don’t mean a thing Back on her couch Before the commercial break ends Third time tonight And she’ll do it again Roof access She just wants to watch him sleep

When you left your home You saw that life was good And everybody knew what to do, but you They say the sum of the parts Greater than the whole You settle into a groove, and then you go Everybody knew what to do, but you The sum of the parts Greater than the whole Settle into a groove, then go

At night he comes alive But you might not survive Got this little pill to pull you through I got a little pill to take you And Lord knows where he been He come home soaked in gin Got this little pill to pull you through Got this little pill to take you The way that you feel now You can’t take much more Something’s got to give Oh, he’s taking off again He won’t say where or when Drop this little pill into his flask Drop this little pill into him You never could keep him home So weapons brought to bear Now that little pill inside his flask Now that little pill’s inside him The way that you feel now You can’t take much more Something’s got to give So put him on the floor Your momma warned you, girl You know how these boys are He made it to his car But never made it to the bar Oh, you should have just stayed at home But you always had to go and roam From your pretty little wife at home Yeah, your pretty little life at home

I’m with you, my love But some small darkness comes between Everything And it’s real, this love But still some darkness makes me fiend For terrible things I know you’ve been following me Don’t doubt my heart It may be black, but don’t you know it beats for you And only you Come along, my love If you’re so curious about the things I do Let me show you I know you’ve been following me I’m with you, my love But some small darkness makes me fiend For terrible things I know you’ve been following me

Aim for the light, aim for the sweetness Aim for a life far away from mine Should’ve listened to your girlfriends You should have run Don’t let me get ahold Of your heart of gold Hope you never wise up Hope you never catch on Hope you never see the good life Outside these walls Should’ve listened to your girlfriends You should have run Things are going great But just you wait Just you wait Just you wait Don’t let me get ahold Of your heart of gold

Danny wrote his name and Erin’s On the overpass, to stake his claim On a girl from a world on the other side of town Where they playing a different game And Danny knew it was Erin’s parents Who had the cops come warn him to stay away But his ribs will heal, they’ll have to put him behind steel Otherwise it ends today She got angels looking over her He got angels overlooking him He said “The heart wants what the heart wants And the heart don’t want you If you ever come near my daughter again, Lord, I’m telling you You don’t wanna die tonight But son, I think you might Have angels overlooking you” She got angels looking over her He got angels overlooking him She got a back yard made of water He got a front yard filled with cars She got a future so bright it’s crazy Danny scratched his name and Erin’s Into the cell wall, above his bed You know he loves her just the same Even if she never knew his name Until he shot her daddy dead She got angels looking over her He got angels overlooking him

When the door kicks in And the police draw Their guns in the quiet of the night Who’s gonna believe you? Go ahead and call up the newspapers Go on and take it to the top You know the Law is a fickle friend And who’s gonna believe you? I’m the cold and rusty nail Out here where the dust prevails See, these lives are all for sale They tried to pray the poor away Then a fella like you come ‘round Asking questions bout the lost and never found You gonna leave it You gonna leave it, or I’m gonna take it away Who’s gonna believe you? Why don’t you load up that trunk And head toward I-94 Forget about what you seen here Who’s gonna believe you?

Old man said “Only read one book In my whole life, only read one book Left town once, that was all it took Ran home to the good good book” That old man, he got a spider in his brain Bigger every day He hope and pray and pray and pray It grows, anyway Old man said “Only had one son He don’t believe, so I got my gun I told him to leave, I don’t need no one Just the good good book” Old man said “Only read one book My whole life, I only read one book Left town once, that was all it took Ran home to the good good book”

I’ve got something on you Something witnessed from the view Your wife and kids adore you They don’t know what you do I’ve got something on you I’ve got something on you I followed you to 9th and 22 You’re everybody’s favorite Imagine if they knew That something that I’ve got on you I’ve got something on you Not much, but it’ll do A twelve second clip Enough to prove it true I’ve got something on you You understand that I’ve got you On a rope through which you cannot chew Now there’s a little something That I’d like you to do I’ve got something on you

about

DAMIEN DONE

DAMIEN DONE is the nom de plume of Damien Moyal, best known as frontman of iconic 90s hardcore punk bands As Friends Rust.

Here, Moyal takes a sharp and decided turn from the angst of his past, instead crooning unnerving, voyeuristic tales over bleak numbers that at once touch on the doom and drawl of swampy grunge and the cold, blue sneer of dark 80s pop and post-punk.
