"saving face machine"
by Gunshy

i hate sentences that start with 'i'
you love anything that's all about you
that fact didn't occur to me until recently
when i shook my head in the utter disbelief of the way it used to be
(when i was sleeping)
i had a dream about you and you were somebody else
i had a dream about you and then it's somebody else
if i learned anything in school, it was to not give a shit and be no one's tool
because you say that the world is an open book
but i don't understand the language that it's printed in
and done with disappearing/reappearing ink, as well
i swear to god (that's all he's good for)
i had a dream about you but you were somebody else
i had a dream about you but then it's somebody else
i had a dream about and you were robotic
i had a dream about you but then it all went to hell
a world war starts tonight
but you're busy trying on new clothes
how did you want it?
what did you expect, kiddo?
i'm just a sullen freak
but you're the fuckin' president
and we were made to be apart
only after these events we know
divided we stand, united we fall
...at least spares us both the torture of saving face
:}

[ADDENDUM - Auth. Note: I gotta quit smoking; hence the weird voice. I just gotta do it. As to the guitar's quietness, yeah it's a pretty bad room recording. i'll see what i can do. the synths are used to kind of cover it, but then they just took on a life of their own. +G]

Cool stuff

Reminds me of something Cage The Elephant would do, but then again, this was likely written before Cage The Elephant, so awesome shit,

The lyrics are awesome

I took a look at the lyrics and found a suprisingly good connection to a lot of things in my life. I also found, and I have no idea if this was intentional, a great statement about society within the line "a world war starts tonight but you're busy trying on new clothes" leme know if this was on purpose


People find this review helpful!
Gunshy responds:

very much on purpose
lyrics work on mico- and macrocosmic levels
intentional metaphysical double-entendres abound
thnkx for the 10
