about

I recorded the basic tracks for this (guitar, vocal and drums) with Juan Piola last July - Oscar Hidalgo played the drums.

lyrics

Right! Good!
What do we do with the rest of our lives?
Now we can do anything
What do we do?

We could
sit here and dream for the rest of our lives
That is what we've always done
Our dreams might come true.

Under the breath
Beneath the skin
It's the ticking of the clock
The prick of the pin

Somehow
Every time something begins in our lives
We paint it to look like the thing
That stood there before.

No more
Rooting around in the bins of our lives
Searching for leftover dreams
Could we scavenge no more?


The liquid buzz
The distant hum
It's the neighbour's car-alarm
The beat of the drum

It's a mad game
Everything seems to be
Consequences
And repercussions
And we are only fixing our ends,
And we'd race to embrace time
If time was our friend.

OK
What do we do with the rest of our lives?
