"Punch-Drunk Punk Rock Romance" as written by and Buckley Novac....
Pressed the seven sequenced silver panic buttons,
The distress calls that fall on a distracted short-wave signal.
A metronome timed to my panic stricken breathing
And a pulse conducted by our dying lines.

You said my heart sounded like a payphone in the rain.
Distorted, distant, scrambled and desperate.
Baby, I swear to god tonight I am sober.
It's the reception between us that's failing.

Everything's coming out all frenzied and confused.
She's got what it takes to make collapsing a habit
And a dance out of a tantrum fit (it's tragic but I am sobering up).
Pick up the phone.

Tonight I feel like the hero of a rusting war.
My touch has the timing and precision of a car wreck.
No use translating the trembles.
They're symptoms of repetitive testing for fluctuation.

If I come back home, I am bringing back the bends.
So give me a kiss. let me taste the reptilian appeal.
Say it again baby. does it turn you on? does it get you hot?
I get a little hysterical sometimes.

The panic you shouldn't have been so sentimental.
All that kicking and screaming.
Everything I touch starts peeling.
We malfunction like machines.

Get up off the floor and answer the phone.
I want to be a big star.
Didn't want to touch so hard.
Open the door.

I am your deviant satellite, an orbit defected by the ballast of words.
You're the reason for collisions.
I am face down like a sailor washed up under your window.
Tonight is a shipwreck.

Navigating through disorder.
Now every electric star hums like a telecaster.
How punk rock is that?
You're so oblivious.

Baby, you're my oblivion.

    General Commenti was thinking he looked like Elvis on crack.

    oh, wait, Elvis WAS on crack.

    so, he just reminds me of Elvis while performing. yeah.

    however, they are an amazing band, and play good shows. yes. this is one of my favorite songs.

    General Comment"It's tragic...but I am sobering up". The singers from ETID, the Icarus Line, Converge, and, although they're awful, Glassjaw might as well just start up their own jazz/hardcore band. I love that jazzy singing that a lot of hardcore singers slip into. This song is fucking incredible.
