Keep the Signal Clear

Original Composition by Justin Banks

Stuck inside a studio on a Berlin afternoon
Just a bit more poison, this will surely be my tomb
Suddenly I see my Uncle, with his wolf straddling behind
“Strength and pain is fleeting, boy, so keep the signal clear.”

Fuchsia foam pours out my gut as I scream within the wind
God bestowed my soul and now that soul he will rescind
Grandmother spreads across the ceiling, the Blues are marching through her ears
“He never whispers, so honey, keep that signal clear.”

Drag my limbs through Dallas, bourbon trickling down the veins
The tavern paint job begs for peeling, ceiling tiles pray for the rain
My love, my daughter strains chords softly, as if dreaming I’m near
“Intentions won’t raise me, papa, so keep your signal clear.”
