lyrics

Wake up the silence of another day.
Pursuit of something out on the horizon.
A man guards the middle of an empty path.
Arms spread and I'm trying to fly, but I'm stuck on the ground and I'm out of good ideas.
He said:

“Slow down, you're moving much too fast.
You come across the middle, I'll knock you down, son.
Well perhaps you shoulda chose another path.
Well go and get some rest, my friend,” he said,

“Tomorrow is another day.”

You don't know me.
You don't please me.
You don't show me.
What I'm needing,

You don't know me.
You don't please me.
You're not worthy.
You can't see me.

You don't know me.
You can't please me.
I will cut you.
Watch you bleeding.

You don't know me.
You can't please me.
I will take your
Heart, I'll eat it.

You can't know me
You can't please me
You're not worthy.

I'm gonna cross the middle anyway.

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
