lyrics

TV makes me jealous of the life I'll never lead.
I stub my toe wide open. It goes unnoticed until it starts to bleed.
I left a trail, it left them begging for more as if I'm a celebrity.
How can you get behind someone you don't even know?

Fathers of music, Brothers of science,
Dad gets a hug from Conan O'Brien.
We are the sweat, the salt of the Earth,
beards all around because shaving would hurt.

It's hard to live after being crushed to death.
Engorging myself on things good for my health.
Calcium barrier, buried in calcified clothes, tuxedo of bones.

TV makes me jealous of the life I'll never have.
I'm getting postcards from Vancouver but they're never from my dad.
I am a Shellean monster and nobody knows what parts I'm composed of.
I'm put together but never complete. The lost puzzle piece, an eternal stand.

It's not the way our fathers were raised,
too scared to face what they have made.
They move away. They run to save themselves from what they have made.

Sisters of sacrifice, Mother of nature.
The family collaborates just for a picture
then it's back to separate poles, different lives, ulterior roles....

We will write commercial jingles for the right price and we do NOT play at weddings, only funerals. ... more
