lyrics

You told me it was all a dream
I told you “Isn’t everything?”
I’m descending into storyville
and to everything that that might mean
Every little thought is gonna follow me home tonight and
every little word is gonna follow me home tonight

A convict in the basement of the city is fading the streetlights in
but that does not mean what it used to; I’m not going home

I feel my collar scraping at my throat
and my clothes hanging from every limb
There’s a gun tucked in under his coat
and jasmine perfume on her skin
I remember feeling caught in a crossbreeze
you were there beside me
quaking like a heartbeat
heat weakening my knees

And a convict in the basement of the city is fading the streetlights in
but that does not mean what it used to; I’m not going home

Gomer, if I had to guess
I would guess that you are here
but before you go and disappear
I just want you to know that I’m here, too

about

The Utilities Lethbridge, Alberta

Their work is genuine. They have been making music together for the better part of a decade with sounds drawing from folk and Can-rock. Their take on guitar-heavy indie is both familiar and forward-thinking.
