Take a gander in the closet if you’re curious. You can check out what I’ve got, but don’t steal anything. Not to say I don’t trust my shipmates, y’see… Just a precaution. I might consider lending but I’d need it back eventually…
And so in between sips of my new favourite beverage (bourbon with a splash of bitters), I mixed a demo version of my newest song. So have at it, mateys, and lemme know if it’s good or if it needs something or if it’s so bad that I should just hang up me hat.
Venus (Don’t Believe In Us)
“Stiff upper lip and all that shit,” she said. “Keep it up, don’t let me down.”
“You’ve done enough to make me smile, so I’ll let you go.”
And how could one argue?
Just suck it up and try to keep your voice down.
Though I can’t keep much of anything down anymore…
And it helps to unwind. To wind back the future and find that one single moment is all that you’ll own.
Long underwear slips past childbearing hips, and this potbellied Venus don’t believe in us.
And the only thing new is that we’re both growing old.
And we’re suddenly struck by the sound of the whole world laughing out loud.
And bright lights still shine.
And where you go don’t make you whatever you think you are.
