about

Poison Arrows, Roof Beams' third LP, is musically influenced by Bob Dylan, Bright Eyes, Neutral Milk Hotel, and Beirut, and is lyrically rich as a discussion on adulthood, cynicism, and strength through togetherness.

Track Name: Hurricane
When you get your change it will come like worms to your grave.
They will all say it is a shame, but you will say "I was dead anyway."
Lovers, whores, murderers, and saints all mingle in the dirt at the end of the day.
Meanwhile, I try to find some grace that doesn't sound like a cheap escape.

When you go away, it feels like a hurricane.
I cannot sleep. I cannot keep out the rain.
When you go away, it feels like a hurricane.
I cannot sleep. I cannot keep out the rain.

Fathers take the blame and then run like water in a drain.
Liquor makes them weak. Children make them insane.
Mothers leave the name and then throw everything else away.
You can shake the bonds of youth but you won't shake your American blues.

When you go away, it feels like a hurricane.
I cannot sleep. I cannot keep out the rain.
When you go away, it feels like a hurricane.
I never sleep and death taps my shoulder every day.
