lyrics

"I've got six dollars
And you've got a gun"
You said let's buy some bullets
Shoot things for fun
Well the old rusty shed
Where the turkeys roamed wild
Tipped in the rainstorm
We thought for awhile
I left the wine
In the cupboard to hide
That way our friends
Would know it was mine
We walked the trail
Stumbled on roots
The tree like a dragon
Withered and dried

Oh but things are bound to change
And everything will die
But the minutes that I spent with you
Were worth every dime

Oh where, where did you run
Did the thought of life scare you off
Was there ever a chance you'd stay here with me
Did things have to end to the sound of broken strings

Buried the hatchet
And listened to the dogs
Carried my knapsack
Into the woods
Started the fire
And saw all my friends
Knew that I missed you
As soon as it began
Sat by the water
With the moon hanging high
Beaming underneath
Like floodlights at the bottom

Oh and things had surely changed
And everything had died
But the minutes that I spent with you
Were still worth the while

Oh where, where did you run
Did the thought of life scare you off
Was there ever a chance you'd stay here with me
Did things have to end to the sound of broken strings

about

Cigarettes and Milk Portland, Oregon

Everyone says my moniker is gross. Cigarettes and Milk is the factual and fictitious project of Waldo Przekop. Which is me. Stories of a kid who hates the system of oppression put in place by a capitalist society. Songs of my deepest internal grief and anxiety. I am emotional, almost none of my music is happy. I am a lo-fidelity musician and I am folk out of the gutter. A blueberry farmer too. ... more
