lyrics

Pardon me, it was my mistake
I thought you was somebody I would love to hate
But I can't stand the sight of you standing the sight of me

He called me up said "I know we ain't spoke in a while
But bro I like you better than most"
And he cried as he recited his five act tragedy

And everybody said "Son, this is how it's done
Tell 'em it's been fun, but you gotta run
You'd rather not be late for your red hot date for a table for one"

I see you over and over but we never get closer
To the moment where we both say nothing at all
And if you backhand my gladhand
I'll be cool as can be man
And I'll shake it off like it was nothing at all

I saw the face of She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed
The better part of me was walking away
But the rest of me was ready to kneel at the count of four
(One two three four)

I looked up to find the language of love
She looked down from a mile above
As she smiled and tried to find a way to close the door

And everybody said "sigh, if you wanna cry
Do it on the sly and if they ask you why
You look em in the eye and start shooting the shit
About the shade of the sky"

I see you over and over but we never get closer
To the moment where we both say nothing at all
And if you backhand my gladhand
I'll be cool as can be man
And I'll shake it off like it was nothing
Like it meant nothing at all


I see you over, and over, but we never get closer...
And if you backhand my glad hand I'll be cool as you please man...

about

THE BROTHER K MELEE New York, New York

It's the sound of a bar fight breaking out at a revival tent. No, wait - it's the sound of a revival breaking out during a bar fight. Whatever it is, "rocknroll" is probably as good a name as any. Hooks, howls, and heartache.
