about

A youthful wrong turn weighed heavy for years. The guilt was misplaced. Toxic vanity.

lyrics

Baby grand piano stands lid-down all year
Ivories hidden, fifty-two unshed tears
Emulsioned the whole house, white-washed all my crimes
A piss-pot Bobby Rauschenberg, repainting no good times

And it feels so unloving to stay
And it feels so unloving to leave
And it feels so unloving to stay
But I know what I did

A team of grey squirrels charge the door in turn
To smash up the nutbags that I’d left out for the birds
Taxi for knobhead, who leaves on a briny wave
Opens the car door, steps into his mistake

And it feels so unloving to stay
And it feels so unloving to leave
And it feels so unloving to stay
But I know what I did

Six cans good, five pounds fitter
Tin is only way to test your mettle

Open his rucksack, the boy with the arab strap
Head in the canvas, he falls flat on his back
Sees thirty-six black keys that unlock the same door
Back to the start, back to the floor
