Breakers in the Dark

by The Stanfields



Capturing a laid back 70's folk rock vibe that grimly addresses ego and self-destruction, The Stanfields return to the plate with their new single "Breakers in the Dark" - the second from their forthcoming studio recording "Classic Fadeout" (January 2020).


Your eyes tonight are little pins
Looking for a friend
And tell a story locked inside of you
Your lips provide a different spin
One to be believed
If we were strangers on an avenue

You’re running riot in the still
Choking on your high class pill
Staggering through the gristmill cuz you’re
Trying to medicate your only spark
Look out for the wind
And the breakers in the dark

You laugh about the prickly things
Popping your balloons
And take time for the silly games that make you whole
You say them’s the breaks and them’s the rules
Part of the suspense
When you’re just a button on a remote control

You’re standing tall but walking death
Stronger than a horse’s breath
Nothing but the best I tell ya
Crying makes you fodder for the sharks
Look out for the fins
And the breakers in the dark

Chewing on your wire cage
It’s a pity someone that your age
Ain’t nothing but a rager
Who got left behind when Noah closed the ark
Look out for the bends
And the breakers in the dark
