Standing at the punch table swallowing punch
Can’t pay attention to the sound of anyone
A little more scared, a little more stupid
Every minute more unprepared.

Made a mistake in my life today,
Everything I love is lost in drawers
I wanna start over, I wanna be winning
Way out of sync from the beginning.

It’s easier than this,
It’s easier than this.
Everything you say has water under it.

Bring me the head of a love song
Somebody bring me my head on a plate.
Wanna be blank slate
Wanna wear a white cape
Wanna tackle young girls off their beautiful boyfriends.

Looking for somewhere to stand and stay
Leaned on the wall, the wall leaned away
Can I get a minute of not being nervous?
And not thinking of my dick?

My leg is sparkles, my leg is pins
I better get my shit together, better gather my shit in
You can drive a car through my head in five minutes
From one side of it to the other.

So come on now,
Don’t make me cry.
Everything you say has
Water under it.

It’s easier than this
It’s easier than this,
Everything you say has water under it.

Bring me the head of a love song
Somebody bring me my head on a plate
I wanna be a blank slate
I wanna wear a white cape
I wanna tackle young girls of their beautiful boyfriends
I wanna tackle young girls off their beautiful bikes
I wanna be a blank slate
I wanna wear a white cape
Oh, no no…
Standing at the punch table swallowing punch
Can’t pay attention to the sound of anyone
A little more scared, a little more stupid
Every minute more unprepared.

Made a mistake in my life today,
Everything I love is lost in drawers
I wanna start over, I wanna be winning
Way out of sync from the beginning.

It’s easier than this,
It’s easier than this.
Everything you say has water under it.

Bring me the head of a love song
Somebody bring me my head on a plate.
Wanna be blank slate
Wanna wear a white cape
Wanna tackle young girls off their beautiful boyfriends.

Looking for somewhere to stand and stay
Leaned on the wall, the wall leaned away
Can I get a minute of not being nervous?
And not thinking of my dick?

My leg is sparkles, my leg is pins
I better get my shit together, better gather my shit in
You can drive a car through my head in five minutes
From one side of it to the other.

So come on now,
Don’t make me cry.
Everything you say has
Water under it.

It’s easier than this
It’s easier than this,
Everything you say has water under it.

Bring me the head of a love song
Somebody bring me my head on a plate
I wanna be a blank slate
I wanna wear a white cape
I wanna tackle young girls of their beautiful boyfriends
I wanna tackle young girls off their beautiful bikes
I wanna be a blank slate
I wanna wear a white cape
Oh, no no…

    General CommentI think this less 'polished' version of Slow Show is just wonderful. It feels so sincere and driven by some kind of self-frustration. Hidden gem of the "A skin, a night + Virginia EP" album!
