I am a dancing man With pockets jingling
Where does the money flow? No one knows
Suits knocking, white papers signed
I lost my mind

And as I’m walking down the street to the sound of my shoe scuffle beneath me,
It forms a song I’ve never heard before. The one that’s ringing in my head
And as I wonder how much time has passed, I put my face up to the shattered glass. I see a man I never thought I’d know. A failure out at sea in misery

on stilts a court calls out for more
kangaroos falls for yet another encore
so sick of city stress the art of breaking bricks
and pulling ponytails and pulling legs

And while you’re walking down the street to the sound of your shoe scuffle beneath you
It’s a song you’ve never heard before.
wedged within all of our heads
now all the suits have come to hunt for you.
Blood is dripping from the rabid tooth.
It’s never captured in a photograph;
But but you can hear it on the phonograph

calling those they called off
time to kick the dust off

"One more reason a growing number of people here aren’t miserable? KETMAN — who have triple-handedly restored power to the power trio. Of course, they’ve also restored wit, invention, and brains, but no one wants to see a 'brain trio.' As far as we’re concerned, they’re the best band Boston rock’s got."
