lyrics

I move backwards through the hours,
Trawling through the dark, looking for clues
I feel awkward, I'm punching water,
Blindly throwing cards, putting dirt in my shoes

Can you show me what you're after,
Can you tell me what it is you do
My words come out but they're backwards,
And here come those black dog blues

That's why I feel tired and frustrated
I don't mind, I feel wild, I feel naked
Don't ask me why, I'll swear this fever is contagious
It makes me take the truth and bend it into shapes I can accept

Inside voice keeps getting louder, I guess that we could talk,
But what would that prove
Been trying to act smarter, but my brain lights up at night,
Blurring my view

And my heart keeps beating faster, as the light is shifting red to blue
I look forward to disasters, cause it makes me feel
Like I'm paying my dues

That's why I feel tired and frustrated
I don't mind, I feel wild, I feel naked
Don't ask me why, I'll swear this fever is contagious
It makes me take the truth and bend it into shapes I can accept

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.
