Still waters, death defying
Cesspools from stagnation
Wading the quicksand channel
Slow moving, light focus
Anywhere but here bogus
This perfect world captivates you
And it survives you
Hey Derrick Soils you
Hey Jason Silences you
Hey Bomer
Dogs in the still water wade
Until they drown
On to the Escalator
Down on the elevators
Vagrants in wayfarers
Prime real estate to be homeless
Quality in quantity
In seemingly endless sunny
Sand filled hourglass of death
And it shined on you
Hey Derrick Lied to you
Hey Jason Gagged on you
Hey Bomer
Dogs of the still water drown
Before their small town
And we're off this week to Johannesburg
Via Wien, Austria
And on to Italy
Sometimes it feels like we've seen everything
And all of it means nothing
The rooms are all the same
This is my life until I can't compete
Much sooner than they might think
It's always a still water town
Hey Derrick, Hey Jason, Hey Richard
We'll find a new hell without you

    General CommentI agree, every bad astro song I've heard has them down to perfection. Amazing.

    General CommentSeems like a tribute to some dead punk friends, like Doornails by NoFX. Joey even mentions the some guys (Derrick, Bomer & Jason)

    General CommentThe guys he mentions are the three deceased members of Rich Kids on LSD, who died quite close in time with each other, this might be a song about that...

    General CommentI am guessing ''Anywhere but here bogus'' is a reference to The Ataris's album that Derrick played drums on.
