lyrics

What do you think of my new self?
A new me who’s less forgiving,
Less available to help?
Well, maybe it’s hard to tell.
I never did if for good reasons,
And I never did it well.
I guess it’s grand to lend a hand.
But darling, you can suck the fun
From thankless favours for a friend.
The way I waited at your hospital bed.
The way I would have done for anyone,
And never will again.
You really meant to see a wordsmith,
Though your litany is cheap.
The way I sat with all the stricken,
All the words I could afford,
If I pray for something worthless,
Would God think less of me?
If one day I learn the difference,
Am I glad to be ignored?
I can’t keep you from hurting you.
I ask god ‘cause you asked me to.
God knows I don’t believe you anymore.
I’m lying through my teeth for you.
I tell myself and god it’s true.
I wonder what I’m doing to my soul.
I’m relieved that I can’t feel it anymore.
It’s not fair to put it on you,
But delusions could be worse,
And I know I’d have stayed lonely
If I got to know you first.
I loved you as a favour,
‘Cause I guess it’s hard to find.
You asked me why I loved you,
And I never got it right.
No I never got you right.
I can’t keep you from hurting you.
I ask god ‘cause you asked me to.
God knows I don’t believe you anymore.
I’m lying through my teeth for you.
I tell myself and god it’s true.
I wonder what I’m doing to my soul.
I’m relieved that I can’t feel it anymore.

about

Kick Ptarmigan Parry Sound

Kick Ptarmigan, having recently devoured local greats the Spins, are set to record their third album this year. They play a unique hybrid of hair metal and doo-wop that sounds suspiciously like indie folk/rock.

Comparisons to Leonard Cohen, Violent Femmes and the Barenaked Ladies have been met with confused stares.
