Depressive and lovely
The funeral band plays out
The crowd files in
A broken violin drowns them out
Was I speaking French?
Did you hear what I said?
Though I may get offended
don't hold back on my account
In the time i got close to somebody
I get bested by my own joke
If I'm not playing this rock and roll
I hope they notice
I've lost all control
Time to line up the shot
To configure a plot
A scheme, a hope, a dream
But Who am I to be pickin and a’choosin’
what kind of love I'm losin’ ?
So tell me how the hell you do it,
Every concept has a loose end
When did yours begin to find its own pace?
My Standard issue brand of run and hide
My nightmares all personified
And shifting into high gear oh no
It's lookin like they wanna race
That if you're going through with it
You're gonna have to find a better avenue
Cuz there's only so much I can do
Very, very few pop bands incorporate jazz influences authentically. Badly performed swing rhythms and bolted on brass have zero to do with jazz.
Really From bucks this trend. Verse blends American Football style guitars, ECM inflected trumpet and atmosphere, and sensitive drumming to create an organic listening experience. David Himmel
Can't select a favorite; heard a local college station play "Incandescent" a couple years back and took notice of how infectious it was... after hearing the whole album I'm hooked; what a great record from front to back. astroluc
