about

recorded and mixed by Jay Pelicci at Tiny Telephone, San Francisco CA

lyrics

he was a man such as the earth bears few of
he was a man made out of glass
and clear I see into him
not thin-skinned but with all his nerves laid bare
but what's the use in talking when only it fails him?

I met him at the bottom of the river
we were walking with our cement boots on
I wasn't much for talkin' neither was he
so we got on beautifully
and let each other be
cause what's the use in talking, when only it fails him?

at night I lift my sheets and sleep
and pray tonights a night he comes for me
we carry on much sweeter than the daylight ever could be

he was a man such as the earth bears few of
he was a man made out of glass
and clear I see into him
not thin-skinned but with all his nerves laid bare
but what's the use in talking when only it fails him?
yes what's the use in talking when only it betrays him?
