about

lyrics

So polite, wonder where you’ll sleep tonight

Covering, holding tight, is there something that you’d like?

Sittings on handlebars, as we terrify the cars.



Chewing hair, he’s so cute it isn't fair.

Wish I would, don’t you dare, not myself when you're not here.

Promises fill the gaps, don’t say things you can’t take back.




Unkind, my shattering eyes.

Don’t speak, so closely next time.

Gun shy whatever you’d like.

Unforgiven dear other.




Staggering, pull the zipper to the skin.

Unconvinced, by the sting are you changing everything?

Pull apart every thought, I don’t think it’s going to stop.



No not yet, I’ve found something to protect.

Tell the truth, don’t say that, wish you never even met.

Promises fill cracks, don’t say things you can’t take back.



Unkind, my shattering eyes.

Don’t speak so closely next time.

Gun shy whatever you’d like.

Unforgotten dear other.



Tongue tied, my shattering eyes.

Don’t speak so loudly next time.

Gun shy whenever you’d like.

Unforgiven dear other.

about

The Effens Toronto

"Hyper-strange post-grunge and glam pop four piece who seem to take in all the vagaries of the internet age and recycle them into something unique and fantastic."
