about

Stuck in traffic on the BQE is as good a place as any to reassess your life.

For me it is habitual. Written in the car all alone on my way back from the last show I was to play with Beat Radio.

lyrics

BQE to the LIE

Frankly, we’re falling to pieces again
A lot like the last time
Where do we get the strength to keep kicking ourselves? It must be the cheap wine

I don’t know why we’re still thinking of words to put right
The wrong ones from last night
You’re great, we’re fine, we’ll save, you’re still mine
Yeah this time it’s your fight

THESE SHOES THEY MUST COME OFF
STAND STILL IN ONE LANE
ON THE BROOKLYN-QUEENS
EVERYBODY’S INSANE
I STILL DON’T HAVE A PHONE
YOU DON’T PICK- UP ANYWAY
I LOVE YOU LIKE THE 1st JUNE
MORE REAL BUT MOSTLY THE SAME

Old junk, calendar talk, the thrift-shop queen of the weekends
Still have that Brazilian-brass-lamp in a box
Beneath a box in the basement

I don’t know why we are still fixing to furnish an old house
That stands on a fake street
Chest of drawers, LPs, pump organ, love- seat
A collection is best incomplete

THESE SHOES THEY MUST COME OFF
STAND STILL IN ONE LANE
ON THE BROOKLYN-QUEENS
EVERYBODY’S INSANE
I STILL DON’T HAVE A PHONE
YOU DON’T PICK-UP ANYWAY
I LOVE YOU LIKE THE 1st JUNE
MORE REAL BUT MOSTLY THE SAME

We’re still having weddings
We’re still losing wars
We’re still writing pop songs
Still trekking to Lourdes

THESE SHOES THEY MUST COME OFF
STAND STILL IN ONE LANE
ON THE LIE
EVERYBODY’S INSANE
I STILL DON’T HAVE A PHONE
YOU DON’T PICK-UP ANYWAY
I LOVE YOU LIKE THE 1st JUNE
MORE REAL BUT MOSTLY THE SAME
