Writing Wednesday – Summer Traps “Dead City Animals”

Another WW and another fantastic song by our main man Dave Dean for his forthcoming album “Summer Traps”. This song entitled “Dead City Animals”. Lyrics and ballad after the jump!




dead city animals hide good
and there’s dried blood on my hood
and at the foot of my bed

unwanted dogs that no one adopts
that never showed any pain
or were given names

hanging from hidden fire escapes
and basement apartment doorways
and off of my shoelaces

bars on the windows
and damp cold in bedclothes
tongues on toes

won’t wake me up
they’ll have to lick my neck

wake from
a garage alone
is not where you belong

hanging out
the taste of mother’s sweater
in your mouth
