lyrics

Voice of reason, hearts aflame
My thoughts are burning, a century's weight
All things end but only time and feelings change

Feels like I've put a lifetime in, just to start and start again
All truths are not self evident

Between the muscles and the verbs
My voice of reason, a choir of birds
A voice to guide my every word

And then I'll stand tall as I can, find peace in the whirlwind
At best the truth's indifferent

Oh my God, it must be so draining
To bow to all your sacred cows
Time to make up some new vows
So, don't look now, but my faith is failing
And putting words into my mouth
You would think I'd know by now, know by now

Pull your hands up from the mud
Starry-eyed, and starved for love
Fingers crossed, halo undone and done

And then I'll stand tall as I can, find peace in the whirlwind
All truths are not self-evident

It feels good when my head is racing,
I fell heavy, I feel strange,
It could be the fear of change
I get stuck in all this pointless navigating,
Then get choked up on these thoughts
You would think I'd know by now, know by now

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.
