lyrics

Bat your lips and purse your eyes
it shouldn’t come as no surprise
that I want in your gaze
to reflect in you always

Disappointing point of view
point at me, I’ll point at you
I’m aiming for your heart
the perfect place to start

Don’t you want to see it all?
our summer sex and then our fall
changing with the leaves
no longer thick as thieves

Time will tell what hell befell
such a caring ne’er do well
I just want you to know
I don’t want you to go

I was a back-talkin’, street-walkin’, latter-day fool
You were lipstick leather jacket, lookin’ saturday cool
I was just another cog in the wheel
Mr. Misfortune, boy, how does it feel?
Well, you know…
Yes, I know…

Share your chi with little ‘ol me
then we’ll awake to find
silence is our way
of watching what we say

It’s already half past two
and I don’t wanna talk to you
yeah, whatever, so?
so many years ago

I was a back-talkin’, street-walkin’, latter-day fool
You were lipstick leather jacket, lookin’ saturday cool
I was just another cog in the wheel
Mr. Misfortune, boy, how does it feel?
Well, you know…
Yes, I know…

Other times he expels far-out electric rock that is primal and space-ward, with heavy, psychedelic sounds. Both sides are focused, catchy, and ready to be eaten by your ears... ... more
