Records On The Shelf

from by No More Parachutes



from Urban Prairie, released May 20, 2016
Black Sheets of Rain
Cargo by the Men at Work
tape’s run thin by now
but the spools carry on and on

Kinda reminds me
to play Let’s Dance again
gouges might slow things down
but it keeps on spinning

got no money for that kind of shit
burn out your time ’til it smokes
romance for our modern lungs

Drop the needle in the gutter. Drain

Moms cried nationwide
for their unfortunate sons who
listened to Liberace
candle wax on the baby grand

They say “Al” by Paul
peels paint right off the wall
but it feels like home to me
my mind spills all over the runway

My heart starts to drain
through the pipe near my feet
Every time alone with you
And oh, I love it so

Drop the needle in the gutter. Drain
In the castle shouting out refrains
You can hear it drain

Records on the shelf hypnotize when I’m alone
Mystery sounds on my stereo
Palm mute my life
It’s those clean strings
they’re all I need to hear
