Lyrics

Shadow of Death

Written By: Aaron Price

If there was one wish that you could grant me
A bullet in the chest it would not be
Show me just the slideshow that would play before my eyes
The one that everybody sees before they die

If heaven knows, then heaven tell me sooner
Just where to go and what I'm supposed to do there
the comedy, the tragedy, they play upon my face
About to die to get a moment with some grace

Chorus:
Stand in the shadow of death
Shine me some light on my living
The comedy, the tragedy, they play upon my face
About to die to get a moment with some grace

I never knew my grandpa on my dad's side
He passed away before Mama heard me cry
But I can feel his spirit in my father's steady hand
Or Playing music with my brother in the band

Chorus:
Stand in the shadow of death
Shine me some light on my living
The comedy, the tragedy, they play upon my face
About to die to get a moment with some grace

Here's to every memory still unborn
every road not taken in the pilgrim's side a thorn
We're all just making movies
So won't you be in mine?
The one that everybody sees before they die

Cincinnati

Written By: Aaron Price

She heated me just to boiling
Alien love of mine
then she poured me over ice
said, "I know you rescued me when my spaceship crashed
and that was nice"
But now she's gone
'cuz cincinnati equals heaven

Stripped down to bare aesthetic
She sent me to the moon
Nebulous attraction, coming on fast
Sweet smelling shooting star, now it's past
And she's gone, 'cuz Cincinnati equals heaven

She spoke to me in broken English-
"You took away stars"
I said "I can't relate and I can't create the ship that's gonna haul you back to Mars"
But I said the wrong thing (stupid earthling)
Now she's gone and I'm alone in heaven
'cuz Cincinnati equals heaven
