From the LP release titled 'SIZE' by SMLXL


Higher – (written by Jarrod Murphy and SMLXL)

Where else, where else is patience?
If not here, then where is here?
Steam train keep rolling over
Tracks are laden with the many unrequited loves

Where else, where else are we to
Lay hats, and make our home
Lost hair and comb over head
Are worn when hiding, shadow sliding, looking out from papers edge.

And now we’re higher
Higher, than ever before

Once there was a broken hand
Who held a fortune in a land
Where masters steal from peasants for their horde
Grave diggers were met with holes
Already dug but undersold
For pittance with a message for the soul

Stopping racket under jackets
Covert and relieved to go

And now we’re higher
Higher, than ever before

I, I want more.
Try, trying to crawl, inside your demons

She said, she won’t be home soon
Without death covered some
The knowledge of the recent news
Swings back and forth the tragic memory of that burning sight.
