lyrics

You said it best
when you said that there was no way out of here
without a scalp on my belt and a skip in my step
Well I don't want to seem lacrimose
But it's the only thing I can show

I'm on cloud nine
I'm like a toothpick in the mud
making faces in reflections in processions passing by my neighborhood
There's nothing to sign
just a handshake with your right
or a handshake with your eyes would do fine

Don Giovanni pray for me
in every bed a missionary sleeps
tossed and turned by fevers and tongues
my index traces faces through the night
in whiskied hesitation I find
she's not as mortal as I thought

Now don't get me wrong
Cause you're the best thing that's happened to me
since I started singing this song

I'm like a toothpick in the mud
making faces in reflections in processions passing by my neighborhood
There's nothing to sign
just a handshake with your right
or a handshake with your eyes would do fine

I want to go, I want to go

Leach Austin, Texas

Leach pushes the limits of the current synth-pop craze to the next level by a refusal to be anything but himself--his particular lyrical style and superb sense of pop melodies come through with an earnest honesty.
