about

A song from our first crop of demos. Originally intended for an LP, but as the band has developed and membership changed, we've decided to release them as is, in lieu of a more representative album to be recorded later in the year.

lyrics

Shoes

Baby it's true:
They’ve got an eye on you;
An invisible eye,
That watches the things that you do.

You shouldn't be sad.
You shouldn't feel angry or sad.
Though the news is all bad,
And a merciless cunt has invaded your golden room.

Now look at you.
If there were things you thought were true,
They were true,
In your Shoes.

It's just after dark,
It's raining and just after dark,
And a magical snark
is riding the horns of the moon.

You mustn't feel strange.
You mustn't give voice to that rage.
Tell me who was to blame?
Who’s broken your heart and then hidden it in your spoon?

It's true,
That all the friends you thought you knew -
They were centipedes
in your Shoes

Now come along,
Cause all the things you loved are gone...
to the enemy In your Shoes.

And I held my disbelief,
As I was witness to your grief,
And the gravity
In your Shoes
The insanity
In your Shoes
The agony
In your Shoes
And the centipedes
In your Shoes
