A reggae thang I wrote back when I was in an indie rock group called PUD. I don't think that group ever performed it. Matt really liked the lyric so I had him sang it.


This crown of thorns weighs heavy on my mind
The burrs and brambles in my thoughts I find
Lying in the bed that holds me wide awake
Trying to find the future I left behind

This crown of thorns constricts around my skull
Slows my gait and makes my senses dull

This crown of thorns sticks deep into my brain
Entwines my speech and makes my actions vain


from Temporal Dissonance, released August 16, 2016
Matt Baranello: drums, lead vox, engineering
Twang!: bass, guitar, harmony vox, composer
