Stick To My Ribs

from Trihornasaurus by Kick Ptarmigan



I’ve grown out of walking round
All day around with you
I’ve come to know much faster ways
Of finding the same place.
Maybe it’s worth taking you further
Much further away
The way you stay with me all day
The way you stick to my ribs.
You’ve grown out of walking too.
Keep both your knees in front of you.
We talk about the old times
But the old times all fall through
To a hole.
Burn out slow.
Burn out slow.
When I know
You’ve grown into yourself
You’ve grown out and down.
You’ve grown a reputation
You’ve got roots that break the ground.
Worldwide events have big effects
In little doses anyway
The way you stay with me all day
The way you stick to my ribs
But now I drive a ship that parts the crowd.
I don’t protect the kids, they gather round.
Their parents taught them better,
But there’s always some regrets in this town.
I’ve had it up to here, the way you stick to my ribs.

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