Lyrics

Straighten Up

Written By: Richard Pereschitz

Dig like you really mean it break the skin
Overcompensate for your lack of wit
Big is always better so fill the cracks
Overestimate your grasp of facts

Straighten up when you’re walking steady eyes when you’re talking
The sidewalk is the only friend you have

Chip away your reservations bake a plan
Underwhelm yourself and curb your friends
Dolled up on the inside but your teeth still show
Undercut your neighbor let your dandelions grow

Straighten up when you’re walking steady eyes when you’re talking
The sidewalk is the only friend you have
Look into the eyes of someone who understands the pain of no-one
Reflections of yourself will never love you back

Dashboard Jesus calls out ask him what you’re all about
Is it time for shaking the granted you’ve been taking
Is it time for something real

Straighten up when you’re walking steady eyes when you’re talking
The sidewalk is the only friend you have
Look into the eyes of someone who understands the pain of no-one
Reflections of yourself will never love you back

All About

Written By: Richard Pereschitz

Set your watch for the day when everyone is afraid
Not radiation or the clap, get your pink slip or miss your nap

No that’s not what you’re all about
You’re just wanting out

For all the time you held your breath and shut your eyes ‘til there’s nothing left
There are no parties or parades, just masks on makeup over wet bandaids

No that’s not what you’re all about
You’re just wanting out

What are you about, if not this then what are you about?
You’re breaking her heart, she’s breaking your heart
Right from the start you’re breaking her heart
It never ends it just begins

No that’s not what you’re all about
You’re just wanting out
