If I can ask one thing when I am dead,
Would you lay me down by the river bed?
Let me wash away,
Let it take me back from where I came,
Cause all I am and all I was is just,
Blood and dirt and bones and mud,
And I’m better off that way
I saw Max play this (one of my all time favourite songs) with Wil Wagner in my favourite pub (in the universe) and I still struggle to explain how perfect it was.

This is for the snakes and the people they bite;
For the friends I’ve made; for the sleepless nights;
For the warning signs I’ve completely ignored.
There’s an amount to take, reasons to take more.
It’s no big surprise you turned out this way.
When they close their eyes and prayed you would change
And they cut your hair, and sent you away
You stopped by my house the night you escaped
With tears in my eyes, I begged you to stay
You said, “Hey man, I love you but no fucking way”
