"Outskirts is one of those early songs that I always thought I'd record someday, still do, but I found this copy in the 'old cassettes' shoebox and thought it earned some time served. Turns out it'll be the last track added to my first living album Sundries bringing it up to version 5.5. Congrats, Outskirts, you finally made it!" - Love Lach

Track Name: Outskirts

You're an angel and your voice is gold
But Heaven's clarity has left you cold
You chanted your fire into ice
Never thinking you might think twice

I'm on the outskirts
I'm on the brink
I'm dancing all around your ice-skating rink
I am the antidote that makes you think
I'm the devil in your drink

You're a little child holding daddy's hand
But can't you see daddy has got his own plan
I can't be your poppa, but I can be your dance
I can't be security, but I can be your chance

Inside every heart lies secret pain
'Til love comes down like a gentle rain
In your eyes I see thunder
Let me take you under
