lyrics

In and Out

It sound's silly when you tell me we still need cream for the coffee when it's already sickly sweet.
I can't sleep it's a perk of the caffeine, hail me a taxi and slip into the back seat.

You look puzzled when I love you to pieces, wear sleeves on a gown and the weight of the town rolls by.
Flag down and the counter increases, fair on the dash and a bobble-head Jesus.

Slippin' in,
In and Out
Of lamplight,
In and Out
Of consciousness,
In and Out
Of love like this.

It comes easy when you're eager to please me more than I've dreamt and the tank's running on empty.
Unkempt, an attempt to appease me, better fill'er up comes a voice from on the C.B.

Tuning in,
In and Out
Of wavelengths,
In and Out
Of frequencies,
In and Out
Reality...

So don't fool yourself like everybody does,
They say control yourself and you'd listen just because,
You're like a butterfly who tries to hide away from prying eyes,
Your disguise...

A real pity that we're into the city too young in the night when the mood hasn't hit me quite,
It's alright if you're trying to fix me, care for the hair of the dog that bit me.

It's no wonder that you're pulling me underground to the sound of the beat that the kickdrum pounds,
It gets round like the rumble of thunder, clouds overcrowd and the liquor man plunders.

Breathing in,
In and Out
The toxins,
In and Out
The nicotine,
In and Out
What's left between,
In and Out
The good times,
In and Out
The hard lines,
In and Out
The vacancy,
In and Out
Reality...

So don't fool yourself like everybody does,
They say control yourself and you'd listen just because,
You're like a butterfly who tries to hide away from prying eyes,
Your disguise...

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.
