lyrics

People used to tell me "I don't like the way your hair
Falls down to your shoulders you're not getting older
There's no room for you there"
People used to ask me "Why can't you be one of us?
You're always alone in what you call your home
We really think you missed the bus!"
People used to judge me a court and jury of law
We'll pass a sentence and ask for your repentance
And make you stand against the wall
Give me what I need and don't try to make ms bleed
I'm not your repressor don't try to feed me lessons
Of your righteous morality
Leave my thoughts alone and stop invading my phone
I won't be a martyr fcr established institutions
(That) try to creep into your heme
All I need all I need
All I need is what I need
People used to tell me while talking on the telephone
What I didn't want to hear confirming all my fears
Ended saying "Can't you leave me alone?"
People used to write me letters I would throw in the trash
The envelope would say I might have already won today
A million dollars in cash (how 'bout that!)
People used to make me into sanething that I never was
That they wanted me to be and they tried to convince me
That that was the way I was (but no sir)
Give me what I need and don't try to make me bleed
I'm not your repressor don't try to feed me lessons
Of your righteous morality
Leave my thoughts alone and stop invading my phone
I won't be a martyr for established institutions
(That) try to creep into your home
All I need all I need
All I need is what I need

about

Douglas Chay Baltimore, Maryland

Influences include Violent Femmes, the Velvet Underground & Talking Heads, but the music of his forebears is filtered through his own distinctive world view & sonic approach, resulting in a creation uniquely his own.

Simple without being simplistic, accessible without being sycophantic, & clever without feeling smug, he achieves a compelling balance between the new & the familiar. - Scott Hollis
