Lesbian Afternoon

BandAlternativeRock

Lesbian Afternoon are true wizards of a rare rock credence. They are the band looming in the shadows, then hitting the stage with a cleverly comical sense of adventure largely unforseen in these southern states. Influences range from John Hurt & Karen Carpenter to My Bloody Valentine & Os Mutantes.

Biography

Our music and our vision and our belief in spreading a unique spirit of love set us apart from all others. But we love all our brothers and sisters equally. However we'd like to think our music leans more toward the spectrum of excitement and 'get up and dance now!' rather than the 'been there done that' mentality of some bands. It's inevitable that you will come to worship LA, to be perfectly honest with you.

Lyrics

Pass That Joint

Written By: Lesbian Afternoon

Now that you’ve had your 15 minutes
Oh you want another chance, fell instead of dance and
Creep on the couch for another 5 hours
It’s a Real World marathon, MTV Autobahn

Now that I’ve had my 15 minutes
I was just another dude, paid for your food and
Can’t help but laugh at how you hated tennis
Oh you hated everything, soothing that sting

Baby what’s the point if I never feel free
Maybe roll that joint to him and not me
Baby what’s the point if my heart it only bleeds

…Pass that joint

I see you looking in your crystal ball, baby
Take a little peek do you see me next week?
I’m finding out what it means to be your friend
I took off my clothes then you chopped off my head again

Baby what’s the point if I never feel free
Maybe roll that joint to him and not me
Baby what’s the point if my heart it only bleeds

…Pass that joint

After you’ve had your 16 minutes
Oh you want another chance, new guy on the shelf
I’d wish you luck but I’d probably regret it
No need to say goodbye, selfish kind of lie

Baby what’s the point if I never feel free
Maybe roll that joint to him and not me
Baby what’s the point if my heart it only bleeds

…Pass that joint

Shoegaze Bridge

Written By: Lesbian Afternoon

Most of us
Are born to lose
Coincidence
Not so far from truth

Most of us
Can dig the blues
We’re shovel-less
With nothing to lose

You should’ve known
A knife would be thrown
You should’ve known
I’d be cloned

All genetics saved to disc
They’re compact and they’re crisp
Fingerprints say that you’ll speak
Using words like a door’s creak

You should’ve known
A knife would be thrown
You should’ve known
I’d be cloned

Blood in your bones
Has dried and left home
Cruel to disown
Your lifeless moan

Homo sapiens befriend
Instant bio-dome living
Lips compact and always crisp
You shout out loud with a slight lisp

You should’ve known
A knife would be thrown
You should’ve known
I’d be cloned

Who Stole My American Spirit

Written By: Lesbian Afternoon

All of this time
I cannot afford to
Look at the sun
It makes me want to cry

If today is a gift
Then why do her lips
Continue to slip
Like a rabbit’s gotta run

Oo, oo
I can’t help falling down
Oo, oo
Cupid never comes
Oo, oo
Swinging round on a cloud
Oo, oo
tropics of the sun

oh don,
I cannot afford you
Oh don,
Weak below the knees
Oh don,
Making love and breakin’
Oo don,
You’re honestly obscene

Under the sky
Maybe I’m in love
With everything else
But the light from the moon

Sixty feet high
Waves of coral mist
Blowing gales with their kiss
Like an oceanic bloom

Oo, oo
Falling up, falling down
Oo, oo
I don’t have a tongue
Oo, oo
Cupid plays a mean guitar
Oo, oo
Swinging from the sun

oh don,
I cannot afford you
Oh don,
Weak below the knees
Oh don,
Making love and breakin’
Oo don,
You’re honestly obscene

Oh don,
Making love and breakin’
Oh don,
In love with Domino?
Oh don,
You auctioned off your bed rest
Oo don,
Your lawn is often mowed

See The New Arrival

Written By: Lesbian Afternoon

See the new arrival
I had to let go of a friend
We curse ourselves in denial
We were trying too hard to pretend
To pretend

While this demented dream screams
Over there, I don’t care
I climb through ruby trees
In your hair, unaware

Be the new arrival
You have to let go of some friends
Replace your distant smiles
You’ve got a new life to begin
To begin

While this demented dream screams
Over there, I don’t care
I climb through ruby trees
In your hair, unaware

As this delicious dream stands
Over there, unaware
I find deleted scenes
In your hair, I don’t care

We had fun…

Green on Grass

Written By: Lesbian Afternoon

flowers grow in my living room
skyward bloom
lions scream in the afternoon
none to soon
headphones in the month of june
vacant moon
barefoot on a sandy dune
mantra vroom

one laugh / is all I ask
2 and 3 / come naturally
christians in mass / life is a gas
it’s easy to see / when you’re joking with me

clean face on the tv set
well-groomed pet
cocktails hide red lips so wet
vespa jets
church unearthed sin-thetic net
wars to regret
outlaws carry a heavy debt
they don’t forget

one laugh / is all I ask
2 and 3 come naturally
christians in mass / life is a gas
it’s easy to see / when you’re joking with me

last laugh / is all that I ask
the heart of a leaf / beats quietly
green on grass / christians en masse
we stare at the greed / and blink at the free
