Friday night you ring my bell and stay with me
But you live so far away your mouth I need
And I dread each passing hour cause I don't want to see
Dirty Monday's just a day away
When I'm here all alone I think of you
I won't talk to anyone feel so blue
And I want to stop the second hand
Cause I don't want to see
Dirty Monday's just a day away
And every hour the lines grow deeper on my face
The calendar is full of X that won't erase
And every time you know I'll let me down
Still the image always blurs to white
My eyes don't want me to see
I call my mother and she say "Don't worry, son
The one you know, the seam you sew won't come undone
If you can be like you you'll be like everyone"
Every time we get to know you say it's time to go

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
