Music and lyrics by Steve Zimmers. Produced by Steve Zimmers and Rick Karr for Box Set Authentic.


Draw, draw, draw your dying breath with me so near. Close your eyes; I will disappear. You said you need me to help you steer, but you’ve closed your eyes at me. I bribe my de-mons every day. They’re kept at bay, but now they’ve met you. Draw, draw, draw your last breath with me right here, then close your eyes. I’ll just disappear. Everything’s reflecting you. But reality ruins it again and again. You peered in at the top of the well, your voice echoing downward, mixing up all the words. I rushed home to think about it, but reality ruined it. And so did you. Draw, draw, draw your dying breath with me so near. Close your eyes. I will disappear.
