lyrics

Do you remember when you were in trouble again
And I was selling demons to strangers
And everybody said we'd be better off dead
Then to leave without our guardian angels
But I knew our salvation was near
When the music in my head started playing in your head
Ain't gonna make a lot of money tonight
But if that's alright with you then it's all right

Hey pretty girl whatcha doin' alone
With the boys who'll drive you mad but they won't drive you home
They're gonna laugh just to prove you can cry
Hey pretty girl this is no time to die

Thought the days are getting darker before they get lighter
And there's no time for winners only for fighters
Gonna light the way by setting your soul on fire
In the land of the lost and the free

So this is all that's become of our dream
Irony blushing at the beautiful screams
Pop music played with a smirk
A generation of cynical jerks

Where the kids lose their minds just because they get bored
The pen is even bloodier than the sword
It's just you and me babe on this side of the war
In the land of the lost and the free

Sweet inspiration
I know you've waited
To feel loved

Life's full of heart attacks and slot machines
As the white snow falls on the village green
The view from the bridge didn't last too long
But this whole town keeps singing its song
And we're all going where it has gone
Nothing's keeping us here if we don't hold on
To God knows what and for God knows how long

Though reality is making us a little less pretty
We're not looking for vengeance, money or pity
We're just trying to find some good in this unholy city
In the land of the lost and the free

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)
