The Culprits Nashville, Tennessee

The Culprits are an indie folk band from the mountaintop town of Sewanee, a short drive from Nashville, Tennessee.

Track Name: One Stop
Move away
I don’t belong
On the earth
You’re standing on
So I lost
When you were found
That ancient heart
The love it drowns

What I know
What I know
What I know is an empty glass
But I hope
But I hope
But I hope that I’m on my last

One stop on my way to you
Lasts so much longer when I’m falling through
One stop on my way to you
Lasts so much longer when I’m falling through

Only words
Would seem that close
Place your skirt
Beside my clothes
Meet me high
And leave me low
Leave the world
The world I own

What I know
What I know
What I know is an empty glass
But I hope
But I hope
But I hope that I’m on my last

One stop on my way to you
Lasts so much longer when I’m falling through
One stop on my way to you
Lasts so much longer when I’m falling through
Track Name: Dead in the Water
Dead in the water
Where did I go
You always point that out girl
But in the distance
A storm in the distance
I never feel alone

So is a life tied
Tied up and held tight
With a winter of weathered rope
And when the streetlights
A bustling new life
Beckons for my return

Cause when the creek dries up like its bound to
Night after sleepless night while the woods snooze
I remember my mother’s words when she met you
Oh he’s gone on up the mountainside
And he’s never coming home this time

A smoke in the dim rays
Of a morn that is wasting
Of a hour that passes slowly
She always says it
Boy speak your mind and
Don’t keep your thoughts so close

Cause when the creek dries up like its bound to
Night after sleepless night while the woods snooze
I remember my mother’s words when she met you
Oh he’s gone on up the mountainside
And he’s never coming home this time

All those testing days, lord I carry on
Ours is a long long lonely life
All the good talks cold walks, lord I carry on
Ours is a long long lonely life
