lyrics

Letters become words, and when we converse
I start sliding fast, so look out, look out

If there's a point to anything, it's that words then become things
That over time define you

And the shaking in my hands,
Means that I don't need you
I'll go there and back again,
If only just to get through to you

From where do I go, when there are words that I don't know
How do I describe what's true

My tongue twisted with letters, that swim and melt together
You know, I know I should know better

And the shaking in my hands,
Means that I don't need you
I'll go there and back again
If only just to get through to you

And the screaming in my head,
Means that I don't hear you
I'll go down and out again
If only just to get through to you

Moving slowly, falling further, taking stock of everything I've done
So where did I go wrong

My time will come, what's done is done
Who's right, who's wrong
Just stop and give me more that I could want
This is no time to be at a loss
Not a loss for words

My thoughts become birds
And with just one word
They all fly away

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.
