DESPERATION FEE no you don’t bother on picking up the telephone / reaching out to call you up cause I am home alone / I know it’s wrong but I will pay the desperation fee / this weakness is without compare and I’ll forever be / waiting for you / it’s all I can do / I’ll call you back is a personal greeting that I can live without / open doors and off the hook and footsteps walk this house / all along and overdue / every little thing to get to you / onward through / to keep waiting for you


from On The B​-​Side (Best of 2000 - 2015), released March 4, 2016
Desperation Fee – recorded and mixed by Matt Allison at Atlas / from "Boxing Day Massacre" (2008)
