john onyskin Man, The first track with the opening,"ahhh or oohs" takes me back 30 years to Pretty Pink especially O.M.D`s if you leave. It`s just the tempo and beat there but not the sound. That shit lays in a half pack of smoked camel cigarettes while listening to Beat Happening and Lou Reed. The tracks go steady after that like a lazy June afternoon while walking to the store for a cold one for an afternoon on the porch people watching and thinking deep.We miss u SACTOE...

Track Name: In This Life
Do you ever wonder what it'd be like to be someone else?
You know you don't have to be yourself.
Can you really be 27 and wanna be somebody else?
You don't be adored to love what is good in this life?

In this life.
Oh, in this life we're barely living.

Did you hear Jelly Roll on the radio last night?
He played a fabulous piano solo for the wounded in Indo-china.
Ma and pa you were too good to him?
Didn't give him any excuses in this life.

In this life.
Oh, in this life we're barely living.

Do you even wonder? Do you even care?
To be living your life staring at a TV screen.

In this life.
Oh, in this life we're barely living.
Track Name: Not Your Typical
I'been looking for you
You been looking for me
Say we've got to get us together
Maybe even write you a letter, no

Not your typical love song
About boys and boys and girls and girl

Two birds of a feather my dear sweet song
I heard it all along a long long time
It's all right here all of it every bit
Coming through to you

Not your typical love song
About boys and boys and girls and girl
Track Name: Misery
You're staying here but I give it 6-10 years
Will you have given up on your love?
Have you seen Misery? Do you know what I mean?
Kathy Bates taking shots at someone she loves.
Help you find patient to pretend.
Oh, help you darling you'll need it again and again and again.

Don't get caught up in your love, no no no.

You're staying here but I give it 6-10 years.
Will you have given up on your love?
Beware of those with kids gloves.
They'll only hurt you in the end.
Help you find patient to pretend.
Oh, help you darling you'll need it again and again and again.

Don't get caught up in your love, no no no.
Track Name: Hurricane
Don't get caught up in the hurricane
It's coming over me.
Don't get caught up in the hurricane
All pushed up against the sea.

Oh Oh Oh

Don't get caught up in the hurricane
It's coming over me.
Don't get caught up in the hurricane
All stuck up against the wind.

Oh Oh Oh

I can not breathe. I cannot hardly wait.

No time to dance self-consciously.
The party's just began.

Oh Oh Oh

I can not breathe. I cannot hardly wait.

Oh Oh Oh
Track Name: John Dwyer Was in My Dream Last Night
There'll be a Baby John Dwyer slapping his knees to get higher
There'll be a big fat woman screaming at minotaurs and racecar drivers
And we'll listening to the king listening to the king
While a lonely fat DJ passes out to a criminal Kid Congo
Singing bongo bongo bon bongo

And we'll be sitting listening to the same song

Oh Oh

It goes 1234 tell me if you like me more
It goes 6978 who do we appreciate
It goes 8 6 7 12 6 7 that's great
It goes 6275 beat me up to stay alive

And I don't want you to fade away.
The dreams that we once had should be here to stay
Analog recorders, a virign Pat Smear
When old days seem new again and we're all in the clear
At a basement dive, drink the wine.
It flows from bottles one a piece.
We aren't in danger. We never were.
The bottle is empty, but we're all fine.
The bottle is empty, but we're all fine.

And we'll still be listening to the same song.
