lyrics

The paper burns but the words are free
Maybe, they're not for me
An inch of nothing for your history
Lately, they're coming for me

Another vow without action
A cunning little pitch for your distraction
Now, we don't talk so loud
We don't talk

The longer I can keep you on the beam
Waiting, to break or breathe
What you offer's just beyond my means
I'm shaking, while you water the weeds

Always taking
From the hands that I should be shaking
Now, we don't talk so loud
But we are the ones

Away with words
Away with words
Away with words
You've got a way with words

Be the martyr of my routine
Take me, by air or sea
To the ballroom of your make-believe
Lately, they're coming for me

Always taking
From the hands that I should be shaking
Now we don't talk so loud
But we are the ones

Away with words
Away with words
Away with words
You've got a way with words

about

Northern Arms Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Northern Arms are masters of haunting moods and striking storytelling. Helmed by singer and songwriter Keith Richard Peirce, the ten-piece band incorporates dark imagery with a musical mystique that hits on jazz, folk, and gospel, and blends it with gothic Americana in the vein of 16th Horsepower, Tom Waits and legendary Austin cult faves Lift to Experience.
- John Vettese, WXPN The Key
