lyrics

Pottery to scratch my skin
Dogs to lick my wounds
A wife that thinks that I should die
And friends who think so too
And friends who think so too

Seven days in silence spent
Before I made my case
Then when I finally did
The hatred came my way
The hatred came my way

Sorry that what I'm going through
Has exposed the fear inside you
Little worlds that you hold on to
Are crumbling 'fore your eyes
Know your minds can't entertain that
Maybe God has made mistakes and
All the pain that I am facing
Can't be justified

10 of my seeds are gone
They'll never bloom again
I laid them in their flower beds
And said, “I get what I get”
And said, “I get what I get”

Now that all I have is gone
All I have is death
What is life but a road to
One final, pointless breath
One final, pointless breath

You don't get to decide
The way I'm supposed to cry
You don't get to decide
The way I'm supposed to cry

about

Kyle Shevlin Portland, Oregon

While other bands and musicians waste their time writing songs about breakups, Kyle Shevlin is dedicated to writing songs of substance.

Singing with the aching heart of a man battered by time, Shevlin delivers with refreshing honesty.

His latest work, Your Lies Will Dig Your Grave, is a musical trek through the book of Job, and should not be listened to lightly.
