lyrics

Plainly, my mouth got away from me
My heart burning in effigy
What did you want from me

Hardly, was the time that we got to be
A soft kiss on your apple cheek
Asleep by your memory

So let the light, burn my eyes
All that to say, surprise

If I were to stop and tell you everything is true, everything is true

With me, you are always here with me
But I'm fighting with gravity
Awash in lost frequencies

Slowly, should have done everything slowly
But how can you blame me,
You were like nothing I'd ever seen

So let the light, burn my eyes
All that to say, surprise

If I were to stop and tell you everything is true, everything is true

With everything going by too fast,
Me with my list of things that never last
Say my prayers and pull my weight
Better a bird in my hands than in the hands of fate,
Or none too late

about

Better Living Through Chemistry Ottawa, Ontario

Better Living Through Chemistry are a straight up rock band, with clever lyrics and catchy hooks.

They have a bad case of broken strings, cracked cymbals, and buzzing mics. Schooled in the alternative music scene of the 80s and 90s, this band wears their influences (The Replacements, Soul Asylum, Paul Westerberg, among others... ) on their collective sleeves...like badges of honour.
