A tune about a photo about a town.

The first single from the forthcoming Never Call It Home EP.


when our fathers had fathers this was a working town
we didn’t have to dig too far to hit the copper in the ground
then they ripped up the tracks and tore the smelter down
& now we’re all just living around this hole in the ground

well how many signs is it gonna take?
the bank is a bar & the mine’s a lake

always thought she’d hitch a ride out on a delivery truck
til she met this driver the day she ran outta luck
now we got two girls and the boy is on the way
i drive a thousand miles a week but i never get away

well how many signs is it gonna take?
the bank is a bar & the mine's lake
we could go downstate til our money’s spent
she could end up stripping for a living in Flint

dark green, rust, & grey,
i ain’t ever seen any other weather
& i’ve never crossed the border
but i hear they haven’t fared much better.
