lyrics

Slightly Green
The right one, the right time to let it out.
To feel fine, too near blind to define.
Ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-check the hold out,
The colour code’s wrong,
Distort the sunset,
So you got your own one.
With eyes so slightly green,
The violent light, the only kind you’ve ever seen.
You know you seemed so clean.
Oh, window makes a promise, polite and honest,
It breaks.
Scattered in a lake.
A lake of polyps, garnet and onyx and jade.
T-T-T-T-T-Take the roll off,
The coda runs long,
Get the tone wrong,
Go write your own song.
With eyes so slightly green,
The violent light, the only kind you’ve ever seen.
You know you seemed so clean.
With eyes so slightly green,
The violent light, the only kind you’ve ever seen.
You know you seemed so clean and,
Unoriginal.
And neither one’s on me, on me.
With eyes so slightly green on me, on me.

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