LYRICS : ‘The Square Root Of Four (Is Rainbows!)

New York forgot us and let us stay
Low society in high society
Outside The Chelsea hustling for smokes
Let the rain come down on us
Let the rain come down on us.

I like to watch her neon eyes
As the rain washes away her pain
The way she smiles
The way she sways.

Soon she forgot me and all was dead
No sobriety in this society
The ‘C’ from The Chelsea flicks like a bug
And the pain came down like swords
And the pain came down like swords.

I miss watching her neon eyes
The rain can’t wash away the pain
I miss her smile
The way she swayed.

I can’t see her anymore
I can’t see nothing
I can’t see her anymore
I can’t see NOTHING.

LYRICS: ‘The Ballad Of Katie Vick’

LYRICS: ‘The Ballad Of Katie Vick’

Sitting alone in a bar with The Byrds
A mouth full of blood and the air full of Gram
Bartender looks and shakes his head
He’s seen my type before
The broken hearted troubadour
The broken hearted troubadour.

No one respects you when you’re down and out
Even Fitzgerald was an outcast sans Zelda
Preacher lifts his soda and prays to god
His deity can do nothing
For the broken hearted troubadour
The broken hearted troubadour.

I stagger out into the freezing drunken air
Catching neon in the car shaped strangers passing by
Nobody stops
For the broken hearted troubadour
For the broken hearted troubadour.
Even when he steps out.
Even. When. He. Steps. Out.

LYRICS: ‘Your Heart Was A Hive Of Electric Bees’

LYRICS: ‘Your Heart Was A Hive Of Electric Bees’

She felt the beauty drip like blood
Caressing her soul and blinding her eyes.
She sat thinking only of him
Gliding on emotion’s ocean like a solitary sailboat.

He was somewhere else with the pretty set
High fiving the jocks and talking trash with the cheerleaders
Unaware that elsewhere she bled for him
Carving his name like a Faustian pact.

When she was found on the beach
They said she was blue and they thought she was dead
Then some thought inside must have kickstarted her heart
Her eyes flew open and she screamed out his name.

The doctor in the hospital said with glee
“Your heart was like a hive of electric bees”
She turned to the wall and drifted away
Maybe salvation would arrive some other day.
Maybe he would notice
Maybe he would notice
Maybe?

LYRICS: ‘Song For Olympia’

LYRICS: ‘Song For Olympia’

If you throw me a bone
I might lick your hand
But that doesn’t mean you’ll understand
The ticking in my head
Or the wish to be dead.

The clock stopped years ago
See the future in sepia
Nothing left for us in modern times
Kill yourself, Olympia.
Kill yourself, Olympia.

Come with me, just follow
I’ll show the way, still.
Life becomes a bitter crooked pill.
There’s screaming in the night,
Is Olympia alright?

The clock stopped years ago
See the future in sepia
Nothing left for us in modern times
Kill yourself, Olympia.
Kill yourself, Olympia

A broken guardian who never cared
Found her blue and alone in her underwear
My name on her arm and in her heart
Destiny tore us apart
Destiny tore her apart.

The clock stopped years ago
See the future in sepia
Nothing left for us in modern times
Kill yourself, Olympia.
Kill yourself, Olympia

I miss you, Olympia
I miss you, Olympia
I miss you, Olympia.
Olympia. Alone.
