lyrics

Coffee stains and sugar spattered on my thoughts
Stare a hole right through the wall
And these orange neon lights fade into my brain
With this ringing in my ear like a rock 'n' roll cliche
Oh, all the while...

That dark-haired girl across the way
Glanced to me her dreams and then quickly turned away
Those bloodshot eyes across from her
Is who she's taking home again, tonight, with her

Sitting at the counter a few miles outside of normal
With a pen of broken thoughts in hand
You can take this inspiration with my low estate
And wash it down the drain
Just keep that vinyl playing as I fall asleep
Nodding off with much to say

That dark-haired girl across the way
Glanced to me her dreams and then quickly turned away
Those bloodshot eyes across from her
Is who she's taking home again, tonight, with her

Entertaining thoughts that never cross her mind
Brewing up inside, stretch that smile
From end to end and head to tail
Turn it back to you, you think he should pay the bill
Pay no mind, pay no mind, walk on by, yeah
Just walk on by and pay no mind, yeah, yeah, yeah

Jon Murrell pounds out rhythms with vigor and conviction. This power trio brings originality to every ardent performance with theme colored instruments that may melt your face, but your head will be bobbing as it does. ... more
