Offshore Bank Accounts

You are my sweet little girl
Not my offshore bank accounts
I'm gonna walk on my ears just like a bloodhound
I'm gonna pinch my elbows to see if I'm dreamin'
It's like a lagoon in here.

Sleep around
Take office jobs for money.
You don't have to explain yourself away.
Exploding tigers leap outside the sandbox.
The what you do, the what you think you should say.

It's not my fault that I love you
Makin' love to someone else
It's so foreign and necessary.
I got to get myself--
I got to get myself right.

For the better part of the next year
I'll be sleeping in a shoebox
on the side of the freeway
with no submarine or laundry machine

Don't believe what they say
when the strangers get to talkin'
they gonna do what they gonna do.
They gonna try to judge you and
make a fool out of you.

It's not my fault that I hate you
Shakin' hands with someone else.
Don't want to be a bum
You better chew gum.
I got to get myself--
I got to get myself right.

I may appear to be your outgoing indian snake charmer
but I assure you that I have never done yoga.
I may appear to be your knight in vintage cowboy armour
But when it comes to spelling the word "Ex"
I'm no good.

It's not my fault that I love you
Makin' love to someone else
It's so foreign and necessary.
I got to get myself--
I got to get myself right.

Remember that night in Tijuana
with your brother in the next room
I didn't think you would protest
I was trying not to notice

I got to get
I got to get
I got to get
I got to
gotta
gotta
get myself right.

Paul Chesne Venezia

Why we play music:

For the love of it. Because we’re hungry. To make people happy and dance. To make all the pretty girls cry. Because we’re high. Because we’re low. Because we’re drunk or ascetic. Because we can’t in good conscience do anything else. ... more
