lyrics

(b. tilford)

you are the bug in my car
you try to fly out through the rear window
you bang your head on the glass
can’t get out the way you came in

i’d probably crash in a panic reaching back to try and crush you smash you squash you splash you on the glass and the fact is i own your life span and it was just reduced to a mile and a half

you are the bug in my car
you try to fly out through the rear window
you bang your head on the glass
can’t get out the way you came in
you want to fly to the front
you’d like to sting me on the back of my head
i keep my window rolled down
wind coming in keeps you trapped on the rear dash

where you’re banging your head on the window again and again
you should just chill out
maybe later you can save yourself if you have any brains left

when i drove by you took a wrong turn for the rest of your life you’re stuck inside and you cannot recognize my thickly veiled concern to set you free ’cause i know you’ll just return

you are the bug in my car
you try to fly out through the rear window
you bang your head on the glass
can’t get out the way you came in
you are the bug in my car
too bad you shoulda chose a cadillac
you found my dashboard graveyard
if you could get out you wouldn’t even know where
you are the bug in my car you are the bug in my car
why are you the bug in my car?

don’t feel too bad. i’m just a guy in car with a bug driving back and forth
it’s just the grace of god that keeps me from flying straight into a windshield called earth

about

Oranga Tanga West Melbourne, Florida

Strange stirrings are reported from the jungle. A breeze swirls the atmosphere like a nun stirs her morning coffee. The smell of drums is heavy in the air, like a remembered punch. The natives, never ones to contemplate these things, are restless and getting restlesser. There is no unrestlesting the restlesserification of… this is where the doctor said I should stop writing. ... more
