lyrics

I don't wanna wear the dead man's clothes
I don't wanna hear the dead man's songs
I don't wanna eat the dead man's food

All we are is stuff upstairs: broken-in shirts and broken housewares
All we become is things on stoops: unworn windbreakers in yellows and blues
All we were was trash picked up: half-empty boxes of unused junk
All we hoped for is still back home: a mother, daughter, or wife left all alone

All we ever wanted was never all we ever needed
All we ever end up is there in some lady's arms
And we're lucky to be in some lady's arms

about

Recalculating New York, New York

Recalculating. Scrappy, feisty, indie(ish). Heart-on-sleeve but not sentimental, self-aware but not self-serious, and almost always grammatically correct. Two-thirds are brothers from Astoria, Queens. The other third stays for dinner when possible.
