A & B

Stumbled across this track and can't stop thinking about it. The lyrics, the voice, the music... it's been running through my mind the last couple of days. I'm anxious to find out more about Tom McRae and hear more of his work.

a & b song

a say's he's glad to be here, b's chasing storms in the lightning state,
where everyday above ground is a good day, and life is great.
a's got a cocaine body, b's got a benylin brain,
a knows he's gonna be some body, b don't believe in fame.

and all our time slips away

a's got a girl for each season, b's got a mail order bride,
a knows he's headed for salvation, b's afraid to die.
if hell is in the detail, babe, i'm a microscope,
i know i'll live to see you swinging, given enough rope.

and all our time slips away

a's growing tired of conversation, he's ready for his final scene,
b's whistling hotel california, and still living out the dream.
here we are together, let's roll the dice just one more time,
odd number says we walk away now, even says we die ...don't wanna die.

and all our time slips away
and all our time slips away
