about

This is the companion song to Marc Zegans book of poetry, "Boys In The Woods" available through Crane Maiden Books.

lyrics

I'm gonna take you down that long dark lonesome road
to the far side of your screams
On a faded broken two lane, to the bone white witch wood treet
Long tattered yellow lines running asphalt torn and cracked
To the sorry spot you left, won't never take you back

I'm gonna take you to a place so cold your skin splits and bleeds
While you stand in your denim shirt tellin' lies and smokin' weed
I'm gonna bring you back to this old swamp Yankee town
Where kids drain rockets in the boneyard, dive in quarries, crash and
drown

I'm gonna take you to the place built to ill your dreams
Where tannins choked out the fish who swam in rusty streams
The place with the packies, the townies, and the narcs
The place behind picket fences lonely, cruel and stark

I'm gonna take you to the place my friend near burt down
I'm gonna take you to just one more shit New England town
Withe the gone grey houses and the rotting brick mill
The rusted rotary sign and the toxic river spill

If you come there with me, bigger fool than I
Where people give up living just to wait and die
Chopping off tall poppies, cutting you down to size
You'll know true why I left and won't apologize
