lyrics

paralyzed in the light of the living room
on a cul de sac in Fresno - mid afternoon
thoughts scratch until the synapse bleeds
to the lullaby of the TV hum I concede

all the catalog kids in the quad they scream, "this is the time of our lives."
the teachers and shrinks they judge with scolding eyes - why can't I get it right?

at the dinner table the parent strangers stare
while I dream drift up through the warm autumn air
past the fields and strip malls, tract homes and schools
and then fall - a bug drowning on its back in some suburban pool

the skate rats they ride through the sewer pipes – they’re down there getting high
and the charlatan thugs gawk at the freshmen queens, who all date older guys

maybe we're just a chemical mess brought here on a comet from the sky
the failed experiment of an accident – maybe we’re just born to die

tonight just let me sleep for the next two years
I don’t want to think – I just want to disappear

maybe we're just a chemical mess brought here on a comet from the sky
the failed experiment of an accident – maybe we’re just born to die

about

Great Apes San Francisco, California

Insert hype-up descriptors here. Plain and simple, San Francisco's Great Apes are a lyrical punk band. Music, much like a bio, is often at its best when it’s spit out intensely and quickly, with concision and honesty.
