Put Out the Fire

from The College Years by Look Left



Recorded while Jared was sick, the vocals ended up surprisingly stable and rich. We edited out all of the sneezing and coughing. We're good like that.


Feel the earth beneath my feet
heavy paste so sickly sweet but
where were you along the burning meat
flakes of ash to smear the wheat

I’m still standing here
away from the flames
though you feel me near
I couldn’t be more far away

peel the chalky powder pull
waiting ranks sweat through the wool
remind me why my cup’s not full
smash the horns and take the pill


lay back and ignite
there is no wrong from right
styrofoam and gasoline
don’t get it in your eye (repeat)
nothing left to burn
nothing left to melt
nothing left to dry
nothing left is felt

Turn of phrase then off to jail
walk for days skin cloven shale
indeed the right to tip the scale
father blaze extinguished in the hail


I’m still standing here (repeat several times)

Look Left Phoenix, Arizona

Look Left was formed in 2008 when Jared Clark (Vocals/Acoustic Guitar) decided he wanted to be a rock musician. He went out into the harrowing Northwestern Pennsylvania tundra, bought a microphone and started recording. He was joined by Derek Wilber (Bass), Andrew Cotts (Guitar/Backing Vocals), and Matt Royek (Cajon/Percussion/Oddjobs).

LATER after graduating the college, Jared continues alone.
