Treasure Island

Mitchell Long

(February 22nd,1997 / Minneapolis)

Wicked lines in tepid dreams
Waking up to unknown screams
Walk away from fray and waste
Knowing fear, a craving taste
You walk away, sad, alone
YOU know the screams, are your own

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
