about

Trying to channel Bob Dylan by way of Daniel Lanois through a high mercury wire of Tom Waits in a punk band.

lyrics

I’ve got the full moon in my window but it keeps on sliding over Hailed this taxi just to chase it but we never get no closer Those red numbers on the meter they keep on flashing faster Are we riding to the moon or are we driven to disaster Well the evening started quickly yes I got out at 3:50 Moving in and out of buildings and I’m bringing people with me And it’s August so we’re swimming in the soggy Summer air There’s a current it’s pulling us it’s taking us somewhere Where we gonna go where we gonna go instead? This city is full of waiting beds With sweaty sheets or sleeping heads I can’t recall what I just said I’ve got the full moon in my window and I keep on sliding over To my latest sweet acquaintance and I kiss her on the shoulder And the exit signs approaching but we never quite decided Where it is that we are going so we’re gonna keep on riding Where we gonna go where we gonna go instead? This city is full of waiting beds With sweaty sheets or sleeping heads I can’t recall what I just said I can’t recall what I just said The conversation’s lost its thread One Day we will all be dead Wondering what it was we did Where we gonna go? I’ve got the full moon in my window but it keeps on sliding over Hailed this taxi just to chase it but we never get no closer
