lyrics

A crusty dollar, a slow pouring beer
Cost me my train, a long walk from here.
I stepped into a cab and out of the rain.

She took my hand, whispered spells on me.
She wrapped her tail tight between my knees.
Then cab six six six rolled away.

I'm gonna crash, I can’t think, (You ain't drivin.)
You can't crash if you ain't drivin, no time to think.
Lush and creamy and so full-bodied. (Just a sip.)
I'm so thirsty, I gotta drink.
Well you're so hot. (Roll down the window.)
Roll down the window, let the cold air kiss my face.
No turning back, (Heaven help.)
Someone please help. Drown in your eyes.
There’s no escape. (There's no escape.)

Some crusty dollars, I paid my fare.
Smell of temptation lingered in the air
As cab six six six rolled away.

Stood on the bridge, hell I try to scream
But tails still wrapped between our knees
Hung us out over the river, and dropped us into the waves.

This is the ride, my friend (Don't let go.)
We take together. Water's so warm, what do you think?
Lush and creamy (This can't swim.)
I smell like apples, you misjudged things when you bit in.
I’ll take your head down (We can't breathe.)
Beneath the water. You're so thirsty, have a drink.
No turning back. (Heaven help us.)
We drown together. Together, there's no escape.

about

Trakan Chicago, Illinois

With rock-forward energy and surprise instrumentation throughout, Trakan's dynamic new release is a trip through the phantoms, weeds, and cabdrivers of Trakan's psyche. Bilingual English/French paint surreal backdrops for his agitated growl (think Frank Black, Tom Waits). Female vocals sweeten the tension, alongside notable performances from Rocco Labriolla (Joe Pug) and Deanna Varagona (Lambchop) ... more
