lyrics

I met a man today
He asked me for a light
I had to turn him down even though I thought he was polite
Woke up in the morning
And I swear it was last night
I stopped to take a look around and found that not a thing was right

And so I, I took a ride down to, to Carolina
Cost me every dime I had and more but I can’t say I mind
Well I woke up in a rest stop in the middle of the night
I tried to take a look up to the sky, was blinded by the light
And I thought, I’ve never seen the stars
Upon the canvas of true
Night is always covered by our artificial lights

Conversations incomplete
And looking back now I can see that

There was a time when I, I could be certain
That there was something important inside of me
Now how much time does it take to be a person
Who has lost the drive and lives in memories?
In the quest for eternal life
You will discover that you have lived so much less
Than if you spend your entire life
Finding ways to cross the line and stare down death

Sentences that fall apart
Before our lips can mouth the start

In the quest for eternal life
You will discover that you have lived so much less
Than if you spent your entire life
Finding ways to cross the line and stare down death

I cross the line, I’m on the wrong side of the road

about

Grey Milk Athens, Georgia

You are here... sort of.

We are natives of New England and currently base our operations out of Athens, GA.

We're part of Nobody's Favorite Records and The Branch Collection: two obscure, amorphous groups of folks who collectively pool our efforts of creativity- primarily those of the musical variety. These monikers give us the appearance of added legitimacy.

We are human.
