about

Here is the title track from Negative Slant and it's yours to download.

lyrics

I write myself a letter with a poison pen
Punctuate the grammar of a good time spell
These hands are made to type with a cutting edge
Stick it to myself and accidentally press send
Slowly the lonely will learn to dance with your negative slant
Ballroom, belly to lap and your negative slant

Charge through the store
Charge it on the card
Charge card is stopped
Cut the card in half

The amulet that’s around your neck
Can’t protect you from yourself
Living inside a seashell as the sea claims the air
Throw me a rope I will drag you in and snag you there
Slowly the lonely will learn to dance with your negative slant
Ballroom, belly to lap and your negative slant

Charge through the store
Charge it on the card
Charge card is stopped
Cut the card in half

No quarters only morsels
Morsels taste but no way can support us
Buffet posture in the gorges
Blowing fake smoke out of our noses

Electronic whisper that plumbs the depths
Sending down a bucket to poison well
Is it time to call the local news crew in
Give me a hook I will reel you out then reel you in
Slowly the lonely will learn to dance with your negative slant
Ballroom, belly to lap and your negative slant

Charge through the store
Charge it on the card
Charge card is stopped
Cut the card in half
Cut the card in half
Cut the card in half
