Slowtown

Purchase on  Lonesome Desert Crawl - Rex Hotel  and all online music stores

This is not my television
and I’ve never seen a room like this
the calendar pages fly off the wall
and the doubt on my face must read like a list
I get this feeling the world is in motion
and I hope I don’t forget how to trust
and pinch me so I know I’m real
‘because I just saw my life go by on the bus, in
Slowtown

Riot in a bar on 4th street
cops all over town
they get their kicks deploying nightsticks
chasing kids like me around
I stumbled to the street
and fell in love with the sound
it caressed me ‘til I didn’t know
where I was bound
I stumbled into somebody else’s parade
then the medicine hit
and someone lowered the shades, in
Slowtown

Monty Clift arm wrestled Monet
in a mobile home in East L.A.
in a love and hate symposium
through the corridors of my thought museum
I always miss the bus on days like this
and the knife in my boot
would look good on my wrist
and the shadow on the wall next to mine
laughs whenever I start crying, in
Slowtown

A jump from a bridge set to music
I’ve got faith but I can’t use it
I can’t hear my voice anymore
and every conversation
sounds like a war
and I can’t hear my voice anymore
and every conversation sounds like a war
and their guns are bigger than mine
and every conversation
feels like a crime, in
Slowtown
