hey coffee eyes. you got me coughin' up my cookie heart.
makin' promises to myself.
promises like seeds of everything i could be.
hey ringwald haze.
we're using bruises to loosely in a haste to lose me.
and i've given all i could give.
we live in quick flips, slips, tips, and taps to snap us outta these statue traps.
and i've taken all i could take.
hey ring walled haze.
we're using judo like bruce lee in a haste to bruise me.
and i've given all i could give.
i've taken all i could take.
i've pushed all that i could push and pulled all that i could pull.
thin kids get a skinny neck hex, heads hang heavy.
and kitty kitty cat, i'm feelin' heavy.
museum mouth, museum mouth, my how you've misused me.

Adam, you are the best. ...My favorite Tim Kinsella (singer of Cap'n Jazz) story - back in the early 90's, when I used to do a zine called Kumquat( http://www.sobstory.net/kumquat.html), I gave one to Tim. He told me he left it on the bathroom floor after taking a poop and his mom picked it up and read it and said "I liked that little zine you left on the floor." ...Then years later, incidentally, My mom and his mom were both social workers at the same spot in suburban Chicago. Funny. Cap'n Jazz was the soundtrack to my senior year in High School. So good. Thanks Adam. -Andrew
