Here To Stay


Won’t you let me in
Come on, let me in
It’s getting cold out here in the wind

Tell me what you’ve done
Tell me what you’ve done
We were meant to find and hurt someone

Everyday I’m losing faith
That someday you’ll be here to stay

I’d rather laugh instead
I’d rather laugh instead
Then turn the pain I’ve earned into a bed

Like a leaf clings to a tree
Just like a leaf clings to a tree
Oh my darling, cling to me

Everyday I’m losing faith
That someday you’ll be here to stay

Take me by the hand
Take me by the hand
If you cannot save me no one can

Hollow is my heart
Hollow is my heart
Empty, left in ruin, torn apart

Song by Sergio Still
Performed by Sergio Still and Rachel Madison Lane
Recorded and Engineered by Sergio Still

Good Ship


I lost you somehow to the fog
Wound up on a roaring sea
This wild ocean is angry and cold
Forgot the touch of intimacy

Men young and old they search for their homes
But find mere piles of sand
So the land is behind you now
But will we ever meet again?

Sail that good ship
Step aboard
Sail that good ship
Let the wind take you home

Maybe you’re made up of memories
Maybe I’m nothing but wind
So I will sick on the tumbling waves
For rum and gin are my medicine

Will we perish out here in the sea?
Will you somehow pull me home?
When my body is withered, my son
Just throw it in the stove

Sail that good ship
Step aboard
Sail that good ship
Let the wind take you home

Song by Sergio Still
Recorded & Engineered by Evan Fee

What do ya say?


Can you spare a cigarette?
Don’t think I have that many left
My favorite thing about ‘em
Is the way it inches me to death

But please don’t misunderstand
I enjoy life when I can
But it’s like all my favorite movies
The best part’s the way it ends

O my O my O my love
I just can’t get enough
Hold me Hold me Hold me close
Keep my blood from running cold
I think I finally found my home
You know I ain’t no good at being alone

So come on baby what do ya say?
Are you headin’ down my way?
Well if I seem a little eager
I guess I’ll wait another day

If you’re lonely like I am
There’s no need to look around
Just call me and I’ll be there
Before you push the receiver down

What It Means


You pace around the room with your red dress on
We should be children and leave everything unknown
Lets hunt for magic, lets uncover gold
Lets write down all the stories that need to be told

I’d give you the world, just you say the word
There is one thing that I would like in return
Just give me your heart and never take it back
Cause all the demons here are out on the attack

We need to survive
The future’s a surprise
No clairvoyant eyes
Could tell you otherwise

Everybody sleeps, everybody dreams
Even if its locked, there’s bound to be a key
And maybe we can find out what it means
Maybe we can find out what it means

You jump onto the soil like it had done you wrong
You let a woman treat you like she was your mom
It aint no problem when you leave it all to Fate
Destiny can be an enemy when you have a choice to make

We need to survive
The future’s a surprise
No clairvoyant eyes
Could tell you otherwise

Everybody sleeps, everybody dreams
Even if its locked, there’s bound to be a key
And maybe we can find out what it means
Maybe we can find out what it means

Irrational (sketch)


Rock me to bed
Gently to sleep
When I awake
I’ll find you a dream

Rock me to bed
Gently to sleep
Quiet now – silent
How its meant to be

Recorded in Sergio’s room again

Firewater


Blow out the candle, dear
It’s nothing you can’t handle, dear
Hollow then whole I will make your soul
Wallow in what you revere

Stroll with me down Dead Man’s Hill
Cure me of my many ills
But careful now the way is steep
One wrong step will claim a kill

So, pass me the firewater!

Here surrounded by the dead
She placed a kiss upon my head
And every epitaph there read
“I still have blood left to shed”

So, pass me the firewater!

Song by Sergio Still
Performed by Sergio Still & Derick Aguilar
Produced by Sergio Still & DGA
Recorded & Engineered at Ram’s Head Audio
