about

Dead Turquoise Columbus, Ohio

“There also exists as well the concept of living and dead turquoise. Living turquoise has a healthy blue color, whereas dead turquoise has turned either white or black. In the natural aging process of turquoise, exposure to light and body oils darkens the color, eventually turning it black. Tibetans compare this to human aging and death.” ... more

Track Name: Fleurdelis
subtle in the ways you'd kill,
lips pressed behind the steering wheel,
said goodbye and said i'd see you on the shore
now i'm here, and you're gone

and i won't find you here anymore,
but still i see you on every street corner

traded heaven for the thrill,
bourbon breath, and the hiss of steel
still you sighed when i said i'd see you in new york
but i stayed clear, now i'm gone

and i won't find you here anymore,
but still i see you on every street corner

and there's no glitter here anymore,
things will never be the way they were before
Track Name: Sutures
"strike me" he said,
to a god that wasn't there,
his prayers like broken mirrors,
or the blood, that later stained the stairs,

he said....

i'll never see quite right it seems,
scars always leave me scared,
i never sleep at night it seems,
and the walls now are so bare,
well you could load your life into a broken box,
but the feeling still stays there

"it's like lightning" he said,
it hits and i'm unaware,
it's just a flash of everything brighter,
then dark again; i'm unprepared

he said....

i'll never see quite right it seems,
scars always leave me scared,
i never sleep at night it seems,
and the walls now are so bare,
well you could load your life into a broken box,
but the feeling still stays there

bite down on the bullet,
drink it down when it gets grey,
tell mom that i love her,
and dad- i only wanted change

you can't live life forever,
and on those days when you feel the same,
you can learn to stitch those wounds,
or get help soon,
because you're the only one to blame
Track Name: Tybee
it's not humidity that lingers,
(or) ghosts or southern haunts,
it's the hurt i feel when i find someone standing tall...

...in that same place in a photograph; back against the water,
it's a moment, it's a memory; a kid learning to fall,

i won't forget where this devil comes from,
or what made me weak in the heart,
it's the things i hear in my mind after it's all gone,

like the sound the rain made when it soaked me through my clothes,
or the sounds that i'd hear walking the beach at night alone,

it's the broken, it's the vacancy; the reasons i don't know,
it's the hopeless, it's a part of me; the reason i came home.
Track Name: Deep Turbulence
mark it all irrelevant;
i'm on a sea where nothing floats,
drag me a little deeper;
kiss the concrete around my toes,

make it semi-permanent,
let it breathe when it won't show,
pride in scars your keeper,
a heart submerged 2-0,

drown.

sink your little mindset,
in the depths of a bloody nose,
the light inside a sleeper,
and no one cares or knows.
Track Name: I'll Never Be Your Sailor
turn it off, drown it out
i don't want to hear what i'm thinking,
because of these weekly feelings of sinking;
you loved me but you let me go

don't help me up, i know how hard i never tried,
i'm in the back alone, she's taking me home,
with whiskey running out of my eyes,

it's hard containing this surge behind these levees inside me,
these daily dreams of dying,
have got me living life on my knees

in my head i see the both of you wiping the sleep out of your eyes,
and i've been thinking lately i'll vacate soon,
or wipe awake out of my life

bury me deep under the boardwalk with a bottle in my hand,
raise your glass to this horizon,
while my lungs are filled with sand.
Track Name: ...Like A Ghost
i hate the way they tell you nothing lasts forever,
it's been 24 years and my head still hurts

i wake up locked inside my brain,
and these eyes are a cage,
and if you could see inside,
you'd find most words locked behind my teeth

there are nights where i won't sleep,
and some days i just won't eat,
and it's a little bit worse without you lately,
when these trenches are so deep

and you could plant me with the hundreds,
but i can't help feeling alone,
my hell isn't other people,
it's just when i feel like a ghost

...and i hope this will always haunt you,
because there's a storm inside my skull,
you were my maiden voyage,
left with an iceberg through the hull.
