lyrics

I’ve stopped trying to stand in the way of my appetites
I’ve stopped letting TV evangelists bring me down
I’m going to write a letter to Los Angeles
And thank them for the good ideas that they’re passing around

I’ve stopped blaming God for all the sorrow in this life
I’ve stopped asking for intervention in the divine plan
It leads me to a Western kind of wondering
About who’s a lawyer and who’s a police

I’ve befriended every kind of hypocrite
At least you don’t have to worry ‘bout what they think
Well we tell each other lies and I guess it comes as no surprise
I do what I do and not as I say
You believe what I’m telling you anyway

They’re sharing the good of their philosophy
Place your New World Order at the 5 Star Buffet
It ain’t no kind of deceit
And you won’t need no receipt
To make off with your belly full
No weight on your shoulder
And light on your feet

I took out an ad in the Shopping Guide
I’m looking for a month-to-month lease
I’m a’ making plans and I’m a’ take stand for the commonest man
The mail will pile up and the neighbors will say they cannot believe

I’ve stopped trying to stand in the way of my appetites
I’ve stopped letting TV evangelists bring me down
I’m going to write a letter to Los Angeles
And thank them for the good ideas that they’re passing around

Refined over the course of countless gigs in and around Boston, the 4-piece band’s performances combine driving rhythms and hellbent showmanship with a twilit vocal tour of family and faith, booze and the blues.
