and close as this


I might as well give you all there is,
I might as well take it all the way:
What's gone is forgotten, and anyway
Surely words alone could not wreck your day?
The cake's not worth the candle, so they say...

"Nothing ventured, nothing gained, no hard feelings..."
Other old clichés.

I've held back my feelings for so long
While clutching at straws in the caravan
I'll say what I must and take it like a man.
I've fixed my grin, I've raised a laugh,
And after the back's been broken by the waiting game...

"Mustn't grumble, can't complain, no hard feelings,"
Other old clichés.

Suddenly I see the scales falling from your eyes
This revelation surely comes as no surprise?
Well, what d'you want?
What d'you expect?
What do you say?

Can it really be so predictable?

Now all of the secrets are given away,
What words of forgiveness are there left to say?
Hold me now, don't let go,
Hold me, soon there comes a price I cannot pay,
I take the words back straight away:

"I'm so sorry, I didn't mean it,"
Beg forgiveness, beg and pray...
Blind self-pity,
Other old clichés.

"Fuelled by alcohol,
Shooting out words like a rocket,
Like a prophet out of Babylon
Method acting the absurd...

Shoot me those highballs
Till I'm lit up like I'm plugged in a socket;
Lock me eyeball to eyeball,
Let's not bother with the words.

Oh, bring on the clowns, bring on the night,
Pour me double vision in black and white.
I'm falling, falling - don't give me that look!
I'm falling, falling, it's the oldest trick in the book,
My chickadee, my passion flower,
Show me the way to the Happy Hour."

Enter K, ο πρώτος μου δίσκος σε παράνομη 90άρα κασέτα (στην πίσω πλευρά είχε ένα σάουντρακ New Wave το That Summer). Τότε βέβαια δεν ήξερα τι σημαίνει "bring on the clowns", μετά από χρόνια μου το εξήγησε ο γερο Τομ Ρόμπινς! Οι έγκυροι κριτικοί είχαν θάψει το Enter K απ΄ότι θυμάμαι και τότε κατάλαβα οτι οι κριτικοί είναι εντελώς μαλάκες εξ επαγγέλματος. Τι μου θύμισες ρε πιτσιρίκο!

Υ.Γ.: Αν κάποτε σου δωθεί η ευκαιρία να τον δεις σε συναυλία θα αλλάξει ο κόσμος γύρω σου.
