Total Black

from Limboland by The Stanfields



Featuring our friends Cassie and Maggie. Maggie on vocals and Cassie on fiddle. Google them - they are great!


When you left - I was done
I was broken clean in two
With overflowing pockets and
A well appointed empty home
Was it all for nothing dear?
Curse this wicked tongue of mine
For the hurtful words that flowed
And burned as only poison can
In my mind I’m a wreck
But on the surface I’m the typical
Shell of spit and steel
Built to win and scared to be alone

When you left I wasn’t there
I was chasing a great white whale
Of my own invention
On the lash and taking on all comers
Those who tread upon my path
Those who dared to call me out
Those who said I couldn’t do a thing
With the hand I was dealt
All I saw was total black
All I felt was pinpricks in my pride
All I ever wanted was to win
And never be alone

When I lay down tonight with another nameless lover
I’ll think of you despite being in the arms of another
This lesson I have learned will see me to my grave
This burden is well earned
I’m eternally its slave


from Limboland, released March 23, 2018
