lyrics

how would you like me to spin this to you
i'm trying hard to fix my attitude or couldn't you tell
couldn't you tell at all
the weight of the heart on the transplant list is lessened when you say
you can't stand this and it don't work on its own
but we can see how it ticks for you
because we play to no one while you hit the big one
i'm underneath the dance floor where y'all electric slide
all night
thank you for watching us masturbate eight bucks for a shirt and some masking tape to tie one right on
but you're not sticking this all on me
just chained to the bed to go kick and spit in time
and if you're so smart let's see you lose your mind when they
rip the smile out of your face
now do you think we'll sell out the place? fuck that
we play to no one while you hit the big one
i'm underneath the dance floor just trying to stay alive
when i am a star, you can believe i'll remember this day
the way that you got them lookin at me batting their eyes
and gnashing their teeth
and clapping on 1 and 3 like no contemporary could ever compare
to all of my hot new looks that don't count when i'm so shook
alright, guess that's a way to play it smart
that'll get you halfway to where you are

about

Two Inch Astronaut Silver Spring, Maryland

Friends who have played music together for a while.

"The two inch astronaut is crying now but in three days time he will be laughing because that's how long it takes for his space helmet to filter out sadness and when enough of it collects and ossifies it tumbles out like bone marble, which stacks up his spine and grows him. In time, he will be the exact height of his loneliness." -Maggie Nye ... more
