Virtue

Virtue is relative at best There’s nothing worse than a sunset When you’re driving due west And i’m afraid that my love Is gonna come up short There is no there there I guess i’m scared Cuz i want to have good news to report Every time i come up for air Now i’m cruising through a chromakey blue sky …

One Times One Times One

Do you ever wonder when the damage will be done? Do you ever feel like one times one times one? Do your eyes scrape the pavement as you shuffle from the sun?
