lyrics

Of all the things about which I stayed silent back in the early days
None reveal so much as when you're simply unseen in the first place

I paid dues, I spent time serving my masters
Cliche after cliche, line after line

That was when that was when . . .

Say what you must about my taste in covers
I have definite thoughts about your side projects
But it's pointless revealing the secrets behind the magic
Of whatever's still lingering at the back end of the demographic

That was when that was when I began my solo career

Resist inevitable calls for reunion
As if someone could change that much
Because if you could somehow survive reentry
You'd still have to regain gravity's trust

I've never made a comeback, none one could claim as such
Where once we scaled new heights now I've fallen and I can't get up

That was when that was when I began my solo career

I know of nothing precious languishing in some vault
But if we were to speak conditionally the worst would not be catastrophic
And if we admit there were, and if by “were” we meant all of it
The few left who might find that tragic are the ones loitering at the back end of the demographic

That was when that was when I began my solo career

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.
