I'm taking a plane, I'm going away
To the city cause I've been here too long
I'm zipping my pants, I'm taking a chance on you
I'm riding a train fast like a hurricane
Want to see you in the moonlight naked
I don't know just how, but I'm gonna come back to you
I'm stealing a car from a guy in a bar
And I'm speeding with the police chasing
I blow out a tire and I crash in a fire, boom
So I hop on a bus with a curse and a cuss
But they stop me cause I've got no token
Someway somehow I'm gonna come back to you
I'm coming back to you cause we're attached with glue
A pair of Siamese twins, dipolar molecule
And when I'm in your arms, you will slap my face
And you'll withhold your tan, but I don't give a damn
I'm coming back to you
I'm here on a boat but it won't stay afloat
Cause it's leaking and we're faster sinking
So I swim to the shore, I don't care anymore how I get there
Yes, I'm hurting my feet cause I'm walking the street
In your direction and I hope you'll be there
I don't know just how, but I'm gonna come back to you
To come on back to you what do I have to do?
Should I walk through a wall? Submit to ridicule?
How do I even know that you'll be there for me?
But I don't give a damn even if it's a sham
I'm coming back to you
No, I don't think I care as long as you are there
If you won't have me back, I wouldn't stop my track
If only for a day, I couldn't stay away
From coming back to you

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
