lyrics

What ever happened
To crying shame
Now shame comes so peacefully
And still there's no peace for me
16 years of holidays
And 16 going wrong
I was raised in the valley
Of kingdom come and gone

Whatever happened
To waves of truth
Once hallowed halls
Turned shopping malls
Faith is believing
The things you'll never be
I was raised as a sailor
Who still can't find the sea

And see how it all works out
We see then we begin to doubt
We see the things we think we should have
Then we hear the wind begin to laugh

On a whim with a grin
Saturn's waiting by the side of the road
Just goes to show
By the rings on his fingers
And the stars on his halo
Don't the world got nerve
To deserve deserve deserve

Whatever happened
To my silver spoon
Lost in my father's house
Of too many rooms
From the plastic cradle
To the granite tomb
Between but for the grace of God
We swoon and swoon

And soon each desire will be uncovered
And sweet enemies will turn lovers
But soon what is mine will seem rightfully yours
And before you know it we've started a war

On a whim with a grin
Saturn's waiting by the side of the road
Just goes to show
By the rings on his fingers
And the stars on his halo
Don't the world got nerve
To deserve deserve deserve

See the man with the newspaper blanket work harder than you
With a paycheck he earns from you
And soon what is yours will seem rightfully his
And standing between is just your right to live

On a whim with a grin
Saturn's waiting by the side of the road
Just goes to show
By the rings on his fingers
And the stars on his halo
Don't the world got nerve
To deserve deserve deserve

about

Adrian Bourgeois Burbank, California

"Just when a tune has ingratiated itself into your memory, in the way the kind of pop music does that inspires one to whistle, the melody sweeps upward, turning and dancing in that unpredictable way that a flock of birds does when it moves toward the sun." (SN&R)
"Lush with strings, angelic harmonies and melodies that swoop and soar like a hook-laden roller coaster"(Sacramento Bee)
