Lyrics

A Promise To Keep It

Written By: Delgado-Delgado-Fischer-Stamps

Yugo shopping, feeling deserted
Feeling the same
When you walk by, colors change your direction

Snowmobiling on the ceiling
and your wearing thin clothes
It’ll be 2:30 in the morning by this time tomorrow

I wonder why you go
And slept through the Eucharist
Before one last check of the smell of your love letter

Then scent was sent,
as it’s sealing its fate;
An incentive to prevent the change of its direction

I liked this song before it’s drain was pulled
And now it looks up at me and it’s dropping and spinning
Dropping and spinning, hoping for the ending

I liked this song before it’s drain was pulled
(I’ve listened to this on and on..I can hear it falling down)
And now it looks up at me as it’s dropping and spinning
(I’m hoping for the end)
Dropping and spinning, hoping for the ending

Your're listening, you’re shoveling
The words into your furnace
Your furnace burns a rented stencil right behind your face!

This song goes
From a landfill of self-mocking--
Thought-word-song-trash-butterfly-ha ha ha ha ha ha!

“I’ll be back!” it said
as it dropped, wet, as I recall now
should have known better not to befriend a song

A Promise to keep it
To return, fillfooling you
A mutant tune, a drive-in tune that knows when bad is bad

Here we go..

I liked this song before it’s drain was pulled
(I’ve listened to this on and on..I can hear it falling down)
(I liked this song, my god!! It'll Wrong!! [call] Kevorkian!!)
And now it looks up at me as it’s dropping and spinning
(I’m hoping for the end)
Dropping and spinning, hoping for the ending

hoping for the ending. the ending.
