lyrics

Smithereens

On the surface you're a shiny, happy, pretty face
Neatly folded, warmly welcome, nothing out of place
But you hide a thousand corners caked in dusty lace
And I'm suffocating searching for some breathing space

And I love you I guess
Though all my intestines are a mess
And I love you it seems
Though daily I'm blown to smithereens

Digging deeper, nothing holding up but silt and sand
I’ve been circling round your planet for a spot to land
But you speak a language I will never understand
And the bombs exploding aren't on the battle plan

And I love you I guess
Though all my intestines are a mess
And I love you it seems
Though daily I'm blown to smithereens

Clinging to that pretty picture in the backyard
Time to let it go
In a civil war you can't be mourning where you are
Muscle up and blow to smithereens

And I love you I guess
Though all my intestines are a mess
And I love you it seems
Though daily I'm blown
And I love you I guess
Though all my synapses are a mess
And I love you it seems
Though daily I’m blown
To smithereens

With strains of Nirvana, The Police, Blondie, even Janis Joplin, The Bashful combined rock, grunge, groove, disco, and pop to create music dark but danceable, cynical but optimistic.
