Lyrics

Truth, Love & War

Written By: Christopher K. Brown

What do you think about breaking away from the crowd?
There seems like something so much better we could talk about
Or waste away these hours on one piece of common ground.
Like some lost line from an Art Linson show
That we both laughed about so long and so loud
Before the intricacies of the plot shot to center stage.
So clap your hands, if you wanna read slowly
On an empty beach, while the day is unfolding
For the bitter masses in classless anonymity.
And raise your voice, when the bar gets complacent
And your empty drink is a final indication
This poolside life is dead, let’s see what we can see.

The balcony life’s not the same these days
We move through these times in fast strange ways
Until the hotel staff breaks down the front door to find.
We left our mark, like a careless Picasso
With a toothless grin as the damage bill blossomed
Out the door once more to claw at immortality.
So grit your teeth, if you paid for full coverage
On the ragtop ride, and smile wide for the public
The mounting debt was never really yours to bear.
And spit your words, at the high and the mighty
From the highest bridge amid thunder and lighting
With a mischief glare we always knew you were there.

And clap your hands, if you wanna read slowly
On an empty beach, while the day is unfolding
For the bitter masses in classless anonymity.
