lyrics

Love is in the corner.
Holding on to grace.
Crawling right though,
Her last stand for fear.

Mirrors in the morning,
reflecting a dark empty place.
Where a kiss on the forehead,
told her lover,
his place.

The skin stained deep.
Like invisible blood on their teeth,
I will stay,
somewhere within your pages i fall asleep

Hes gone, out for cover,
in the precious sun.
Torn out compassion.
The desert- his brother loves.

oooooooooooooo..
oooooooooooooo..
oooooooooooooo...
oooooooooooooo...
oooooo..
oooo...

A door almost closed,
whispers a majesty.
Her ending only throws,
A wilt, to distance between.

As was spoken through,
a darkness that couldn't stand to be.
Told to a beggar,
who wouldn't spend suffering.

She'd be a dove,
black eyed and waiting.
Waiting for the red whine sea to be free,
to orphans,
at last,
cast out to vultures.
By a careless world's hand.

oooooooooooooo..
oooooooooooooo..
oooooooooooooo...
oooooooooooooo...
oooooo..
oooo...

about

Joe Shedlo New Orleans, Louisiana

Joe Shedlo has an avant garde, vocal-driven, experimental sound. Birthed out of the spirit of rock, psychedelia, and punk rock- though the roots are heavily disguised and weaved into other areas of music such as alt- country, pop, folk, and on and on. It is a completely original, unfiltered sound. One thing is for sure, Joe Schedlo doesn't sound quite like anything else. ... more
