lyrics

Bottom of the Well
by Velvy Appleton

Toe to toe with my shadow
I keep him pinned to the ground
I search beneath
I search below
I search the lost and found
Yes I am looking
Looking for some soul that i can sell
For some shake at the bottom of the baggie
For some water at the bottom of the well

Sneakers hang from a phone line
Chevelle in primer gray
Cash for cars and stripper bars
This road's got a lot to say
Yes I am listening
Listening for a potion for a spell
For some shake at the bottom of the baggie
For some water at the bottom of the well

Boxes piled in the corner
All i own within
Vinyl records, cassette tapes,
Beach glass, magazines
Yes, I am floating
I float with the tide I move with the swell
To the shake at the bottom of the baggie
To the water at the bottom of the well

These days the noise can overwhelm me
Its sink or swim in this show and tell
Feels like they're lining up to sell me
I just want some water
Some water from the bottom of the well

Half a mile from the station
The tracks veered off to the right
Rented dreams and silver screens
Now I can't sleep the night
Yes, I am waiting
Though i know that only time will tell
If there's any shake at the bottom of the baggie
Any water at the bottom of the well
