Cubscouts are screaming
Needing icecreaming and all the pleasures of June
I'm in a parked car
Flowers seem friendly and people in hall ways feel walls
Now it is night time, maybe we're cruising avoiding the anti-cruise
Oh I don't really know where we are

If things get real promise to take me somewhere else
By the time fear takes me over will we still be rolling and feeling oblivion

Once in a while now the lie in the laughter can burn through a hole in my ears
Like a man with glasses catching a sunbeam and burning the skin of a kid
Hypereal fragments disturbing the stagnants of almighty fear
Well I'll just go under the water

If things get real promise to take me somewhere else
By the time fear takes me over will we still be rolling and feeling oblivion

So don't leave me here on my own
So don't leave me here on my own
If things get real promise to take me somewhere else
By the time fear takes me over will we still be rolling and feeling oblivion

Musical equivelent of a "chick flick" - (so will I get laid after listening to this?)
Quite likable.
Perhaps in a different musical set. One that features Indigo Girls, Morrisey, REM, (fill in with name of your least favorite whiners), et al. But after SRV? NO
I liked it better when I thought they were girls. :ask:
Tune would sound better with a deeper voice. Definitely testosterone challenged a'la Michael Jackson.
Wishy-washy.
I probably rated this higher (7) because of personal associations I have to a very sweet boyfriend I once had. He gave me this album.

Me three...Indigo Girls
Men singing falsetto in the world of opera: barely tolerable. In the world of rock: please hand me the bottle of emetic. :puke: :fever: :crashcomp:
