Crack The Case lyrics - Dawes

I will do your interview
Give you a quote you can misconstrue
Help you push your claims about the privileged in L.A
A sick version of telephone starts at the clip of the microphone
A game we thought we had all outgrown, but still everybody plays

Ignoring all of the remedies, believing all of the rumors
With their endless staged[?] debates
I wanna sit with my enemies and say, "we should have done this sooner"
While I look them in the face
Maybe that would crack the case

I got a friend who's been thinking 'bout finally kicking her husband out
His second life as a talent scout, finally got him caught
While she was throwing out all his clothes she heard a voice from beyond the throes
"Punish him for the life he chose, but forgive the past that he did not!"
It's really hard to hate anyone once you know what they've lived through
And once they've given you a taste

She said, "This is for you to overcome, but I will always love you"
In her perfect state of grace
Maybe that would crack the case

Now that we're through with formalities
What is it you want to ask of me?
I'll answer open and honestly
Whatever that might mean
Finding out that we occupy
Somebody else's opposing side
There's no use in crossing a great divide that no one's even seen
A long position of centuries trying to tell us the future
Between each commercial break

I wanna call off the cavalry
Declare no winners or losers
And forgive our shared mistakes
They can pick the time and place
Maybe that would crack the case

Peace In The Valley lyrics - Dawes

I think these walls have a message or have changed
Which it is I can't decide.
So I leave with the writer that remains
And let him tell me what his better days were like.

And I sit with the memory of kings
With only words to criticize
As if I finally found the antidote for pain
Without knowing what that's really like.

And our actor ends his love song
And all these lovers sit and stare.
If I don't find peace in the valley
It's cause there wasn't any there.

I will move somewhere the ocean's never seen.
Somewhere weeds just make their claim
Where my best friends exist only on screen
Where my love all fits in frame

But I want fire tumbling out into the night
I want you to know why you hold me close
Pull the quarter from my ear, or say you tried
I need magic or the holy ghost.

And as I drive on through these canyons
I'm still feeling like a crook
If I don't find peace in the valley
I've got no place else to look.
