Gunsmoke

lyrics

father watched Gunsmoke
in the family room
while mother scrapped the plates.
with a wish in her mind
sister blew out the candles
on her birthday cake.
the last three words
the last three things
they'd ever hear her say
were "it's not enough, it's not enough"
and then she ran away.

I wanna leave in the morning
while my heart's still pumping
and I still have some something to prove.
I wanna leave in the morning
while my heart's still pumping
and I still have something to prove
to you, to you, you --

brother blacked his lips
and blacked his eyes
and then he hit the stage
draped in pearls
six inch heels
and his girlfriend's bustier.
the last three words
the last three things
they'd ever hear him say
were "it's not enough, it's not enough"
and then he ran away.

I wanna leave in the morning
while my heart's still pumping
and I still have some something to prove.
I wanna leave in the morning
while my heart's still pumping
and I still have something to prove
to you, to you, you --

sister tossed a match
in the Bonneville
just to be safe
there's no fingerprints,
strands of hair,
or pesky DNA.
the last three words
the last three things
they'd ever hear her say
were "it's not enough, it's not enough"
and then she ran away.

I wanna leave in the morning
while my heart's still pumping
and I still have some something to prove.
I wanna leave in the morning
while my heart's still pumping
and I still have something to prove
to you, to you, you --

about

Kentucky Knife Fight St Louis, Missouri

Kentucky Knife Fight's music evokes images of smoky bars where wood paneling lines the walls, worlds covered in shadow and stained with liquor. The St. Louis five piece punk-blues wrecking crew create songs about desperate people doing desperate things in places they shouldn’t be. If there is a jukebox at the end of the universe you will find Kentucky Knife Fight between The Stooges and Tom Waits. ... more
