lyrics

you got a pretty poison
you got an animal skin
your house is right on the edge
of the echoes that itch
your man went back into town
stitching seasons in brown and blue
i could never open up to you

you got a pretty stone chair
and i will show you just where
my knife will hide in your neck
and how my blood will react
the snake, the grass, and the corn
there's a ghost in your horn, it's true
i think i could open up to you

i didn't wanna know you
but you can tell that i'm mad as dogs
in the mountain rain
i didn't wanna feel you
but you could tell that i'm mad as dogs
in my foreign brain

you've got a lizardy wind
that moves your animal skin
you say you're tied to the tracks
with the spear in your back
this creature's all that i've had
felt its fur make me mmm, you do
i could open up that face for you

i didn't wanna know you
but you can tell that i'm mad as dogs
in the mountain rain
i didn't wanna feel you
but you could tell that we're mad as dogs
in my foreign brain

my heart is in your yard
you've buried it in cards
and ran over it
with that mound of tin
revolving fields on the floor,
my eyes don't see no more
and i will most certainly not be
your engine

about

The Hollows Brooklyn, New York

A contradictory, harmonic melting pot that takes all its roots, twists them around, and produces something else; something new. With no frontman (or six frontmen), the result is a veritable junkyard of instruments and musical personalities, a carnival on wheels, a one-man band in six bodies that owns the stage with all the mobile, rhythmic ease of a seasoned railroad gang. ... more
