lyrics

Though the morning commute drags for some
I've long started my day
Iterating through opening plays
Something funny'd be nice
Maybe I'll refer to that sci-fi show that's on Wednesday nights

Quick, hide, escape
Him this early is more than I can take
Slowly explaining dull undertakings

So I went to the doctor and said:
“Is it all in my head?”
Then I went on to elaborate...
Even though I could cite
Published research she yawned and said my symptoms were somewhat trite

Quick, hide, escape
“Greetings earthlings” is more than I can take
Quotes, health defects, topical digests, morbid requests

Oh this makes me so very depressed
When I try to explain eyes glaze over, mouths say “must catch the train”

I don't know exactly
When it first became clear
Maybe that time...at that girl's party
Someone said “here's to drink!”
And that reminded me of the line
“Cause of and solution to all of life's problems!”
But before I could speak they were mocking me

I can’t spend my whole life repeating the same fucking things!
Crap here's someone, I've to think...quick...
Oh it's too funny...

What the hell? How the -? Could there after all be invention in me?!
Let's see who laughs at who no-ow!

Oh it's too funny
Watching his face
Glow from believing
We think he's great

I don’t understand this, but I now seem hilarious
Even pausing too long's treated as some timing genius
Now my old anecdotes oh I feel so spontaneous
They think I'm great!

about

Michael Knight Berlin, Germany

A mutually parasitic but sadly inescapable marriage of the stylish black humour of Vladimir Nabokov and the sophisticated pop sensibilities of Burt Bacharach, they're staying together despite a reproduction-necessitated hiatus, and all the bickering, for the sake of DA KIDS. After the twee pop and orchestral melodrama of the previous releases, they're now making guitar-based chamber music... ... more
