about

Psychedelic circus big top swing. That is all before I get in trouble.

lyrics

Today my head was pretty heavy
And I saw Jesus in the rooftop
He was all swinging from the rafters
Nobody told him that he could stop.
La la la.

In a minute there was laughter
And all their grins lit up their toothless smiles
The radio men in the airwaves
Creep under doors and onto your dial.
La la la.

This is a sticky situation
And I hate all the games you're playing
Why don't you take your medication?
There's nothing quite like medication.
La la la.

Lying in my bath I see the red blood drip
Through the cracks in the walls
The holly and the ivy and the poisonous fruit
Creep up from my toes
And every now and then I close my eyes
And see your face again
And every now and then I close my eyes
And it's just black again.
I was wandering like a gypsy
Maybe we were slightly tipsy
I don't know
But cigarettes and paper squares
Remember me to the ones I can't forget

They love you longtime, love you lipsick
Sucked in you nutcrack need my head read
At least if words go into orbit
We won't be wasting them here instead.
La la la.

about

Lily & King Melbourne, Australia

An acoustic junkyard - blissful, beautiful, dirty and wicked.

They play hot Dixieland punk dotted with haunting seaside lullabies and street corner stomp. Their set sits somewhere between a captivating 40's nightclub routine and the raw, reckless spirit of New Orleans street buskers. ... more
