lyrics

Fifteen shot, nobody got caught
Got to carry on anyway
Walking the kids past Hurricane Fields
By the grace of God go we

In a warm cocoon with the one I love
This is where I'd rather be
Hanging upside down in the crescendoing moonlight
Watching 'I Love Lucy'

Trying to guard our inner flames
From those who do not play the same

Defy the lightning if you dare
Wave your aluminum crutches in the air
Now there's tiny lightning dancing on the witch's teeth
She's chewing on that Christmas wreath

Sweet Jesus! Sweet Jane!
Are you an anchor or a ball and chain?
Lie down, change lanes
Let Lady Liberty absorb your pain

Who's that washing up there in your gutter?
Could be vagrant? Or migrant?
Or maybe it's your mother?
We're all gonna deal with the cards we're thrown
And she's probably gonna side with her son

Trying to guard our inner flames
From those who do not play the same

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'.
