about

The cutting new release from Portland, OR modern soul band Dead Men Talking pleads with "the man" to lay down his arms or off with his head. Sprinkled with tasty piano, organ and guitar solos hearkening back to late 60's Rolling Stones, let "A Letter" shake up your angst for the inequality of capitalism and "living like a glamorized slave in a cage".

lyrics

Is it too much to ask to lay down your arms
This fighting won't get you nowhere
And I heard the crash of your house of cards
is closer than it appeared to be

Are you scared
way up in your high chair
Have your knees gone weak
There's so much despair
at the foot of your stairs
You'd better watch your feet

Have you ever wondered what it's like down here
Living as a glamorized slave in a cage
I aint no prophet I don't claim to be
but it can't remain the same for all eternity

You should be scared
way up in your easy chair
I see your knees gone weak
There's too much despair
at the foot of your stairs
It just might kill you in your sleep

I just might kill you in your sleep
