lyrics

Some red headed strangers are washing
the theater’s facade / I think to myself they
should have spent on the marquee instead
The Antique has two floors by now / Cause
all the president’s wives want to travel in time
/ But they don’t, no they don’t, no they don’t,
don’t know how
The vege-bohemian full of pillows with
morrocan tea coffee shop/Co-op / Is still not
open at eleven O’clock / I reckon’ they’re too
busy drawing on papers / Political, political,
political, political thoughts
The pawnshop still makes a livin’ by goin’
bankrupt then bankrupt / And I’m sure that
old brewery across the bridge will burn again
and again / Ain’t no use, ain’t no use, ain’t no
use to call the cops
Revisiting the museum I cross the path of two
stories of mine / They made a lot of sense
but got no structures / Do I get, do I get, do
I get better in time?
Indeed if I agree with one thing it’s the
second: / The incident pushed her to teach /
The dance, the dance, the dance, the dance
with her Chinese suit
The first is blond over brown over red by now
/ I always loved the blond /Her eyes are still
between purple and blue anyhow
Talkin’ painting, eyes, coffee and blues / I
spent the end of the journey / Watching
these faces she draws / I love, I love, I love, I
love how they stare at me
Each and every one is beautiful / Even though
they remind me how / It suits you well, suits
you well to be sad
