lyrics

I Was A Teenage Post-punk

I was a teenage post-punk
I was a teenage post-punk
I did not know what I was
There were no easy labels back then

I always looked for the exceptions
Never cared much for the rules
We saw the rainbow's end
Saw it as black, me and my friends
But if dreams were waves
We'd have been an ocean

I was a teenage post-punk
Bauhaus for breakfast, Wire for lunch

I spent hours on the telephone
My finger curled up in the line
With a girl I liked so much
That we could hardly speak a word
But we were so excited
Yeah we were so excited
Yeah we were so excited
Just to be connected by a wire
And if dreams were waves
We'd have been an ocean

As a kid I got up so early
To watch cartoons every Saturday
Then as a teen I just stayed up all through the Friday Nights
Yeah as a teen I just stayed up all through the Friday Nights
If dreams were waves, we'd have been an ocean...

Objects in the rear-view mirror
May be closer than they appear

If dreams were waves, we'd have been an ocean...

about

Thomas Truax London, UK

"Thomas Truax crafts rich, poetically evocative songs about insects, trees, technology, and a lifelong obsession with all things lunar. He travels the world performing with his "band" of bizarre self-made instruments including a motorized drum machine made with bike wheels and a souped-up Gramophone called 'The Hornicator', as well as his venerable guitar 'Hank'.
