Old Prescription

lyrics

My hands are too light.
They should carry your weight,
They just hang at my sides,
And get weaker each day.
My hands are dull grey.
My hands on your waist,
My talents postponed,
My hands imagine your taste.
Maybe they’re too weak for you,
But they work for me.
Maybe I can’t read what they’re supposed to do.
Maybe they’ll help me sleep?
Phantom dampened fingertips
Trace your pouting phantom lips.
My muscles miss you, but they’re fading quick.
Tonight I found your old prescription.
Such a powerful state.
You just won’t dissipate,
I’m still finding your scent in my drawers,
Still finding your shit in my suitcase.
My hands on your waist.
I get coloured and traced,
My other hands could always land
On these shades.
Maybe they’re too weak for you,
But they work for me.
Maybe I can’t read what they’re supposed to do.
Maybe they’ll help me sleep?
Phantom dampened fingertips
Trace your pouting phantom lips.
My muscles miss you, but they’re fading quick.
Tonight I found your old prescription.
Maybe they’re too weak for you,
But they work for me.
Maybe I can’t read what they’re supposed to do.
Maybe they’ll help me sleep?
Phantom dampened fingertips
Trace your pouting phantom lips.
My muscles miss you, but they’re fading quick.
Tonight I found your old prescript-.
Phantom dampened fingertips
Trace your pouting phantom lips.
My muscles miss you, but they’re fading quick.
Tonight I found your old prescription.

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.
