lyrics

Simulations cannot prepare
the young for winters of despair
Sunday school could be Saturday's felony
Salutations of blind respect
on the floor where you genuflect
Sunday's fools led Saturday's revelry
On quaint stone walls
the center of town
the future lights a cigarette
like the past you got there too fast
now you're checking for signs
bloodshot eyes, sudden mood swings
do you arbitrate or give a pass
with rose colored glasses on
aaaaaahhhhhhh
aaaaaahhhhhhh
a choo choo train, a rubber spoon
an off key tune
singing songs of praise
in a daze now you're
pampered and coddled
exhausted role models in rehab
mental abstinent, far from diligent
aah aa aa
aah aa aa
aah aa aa
aah aa aa
aah aa aa
aah aa aa
aah aa aa
Simulations cannot prepare
the young for winters of despair
sunday school could be Saturday's felony
Salutations of blind respect
on the floor where you genuflect
Sunday's fools led Saturday's revelry

With three independently released studio albums of major label caliber, the group was primarily active in Boston from 2003 to 2012. The group was founded by close friends and songwriters Michael Hayes and Andy Santospago. The two continue collaborating and hope to release a fourth album in 2016. ... more
