Mini tales of people who actually want to be let down, in one way or another. A track from Mark's forthcoming solo album. Visit Mark's website and watch the video.


There’s a whisper in the trees, the moon is on the crest
There’s a chill in the air and a pounding in my chest
It isn’t ‘cause of love or the memory of your honey
It’s in anticipation of the counting of the money
You said you’d meet me here in the middle of the night
But I bet Joey fifty that you wouldn’t treat me right
Let me down

Mary had raven hair her skin was white as snow
And everywhere that Mary went this lamb was sure to go
She looked into my eyes and she emptied my head
Didn’t know she was a spider til I fell into in her web
I woke up hanging from the highest tree
There are two hungry children depending on me
Let me down

I’m on one side of the scales and your sitting on the other
It was level as a lake when we started as lovers
Now I’ve been around longer that I thought I’d be
And I’ve let you get a little too stuck on me
Now you’re heavy as a promise, I’m light as a pin
And it’s getting hard to breath where the air so thin
Let me down

The time’s gonna come when there’s no encore
Black angel with a scythe come knocking on my door
Say “Grab what you need, it’s time to go
Pete and J.C. are waiting at the show”
And I know you’re gonna miss me when I’m not around
But there’s a hole that’s calling me deep in the ground
Let me down
