Recorded live as a duet with members Sarah Elizabeth Haines and Jess Taylor Clinton at Excello Studios, Brooklyn, NY.

lyrics

Fate left the scene in a mad, mad mess
Spared one man and she docked the rest
Shot lined-up like buttons on a dress
Honey, how'd you stick around?

Pale and long at the age of eighteen
Tore up young in a shell so lean
Spent by men with fingers on her sleeve
Cooing honey, won't you stick around?
When I put the gun down

Heaven knows it's a breakaway town
Where the streets are old and the fields pushing marigolds
Heaven knows it's a breakaway town
Where you can't put a dollar down

Took a double-barrel leading in the front door
Shot one or two, but her heart begged more
"Make them pay for every dress they tore"
Honey, how'd you stick around?

Fate left the scene in a mad, mad mess
Spared one man and she docked the rest
Shot lined-up like buttons on a dress
Honey, how'd you stick around?
Why not put the gun down?

Bane, cast-away, faded photographs
Fate, she saw her name was a bird
Faded from the flock
Now she knows
How many there formed a barricade?
Stoking no love in the dustbowl greed
A black heart breeds mean poles with the sway it bleeds
