about

This band is a gang of brutal detectives. Secret agents. We traffic in mysterious things. There are puzzles in this world that can’t be solved with logic. We use our guns and knives like musical instruments. We will open you. Evil does exist. Love songs can not save you. We will root them out... Watch them run.

lyrics

TRISTE Y HERMOSO
copyright 2006 john common music

purple evening settles down.
the ice caves in, the liquor drowns
you used to sing to me in spanish.
the key snaps off without a sound.

i'm gonna put you back in gear.
drive get me out of here.
all the clocks are speaking spanish.
you're catching fireflies in your hair.

sad and horrible.
sad and laughable.
sad and terrible.

you say you know what you’re gonna do...
well i think i know what you want.
you say you know what you’re gonna
but you’re not gonna get it,
you're not gonna get it from me.

my pockets are filling up with sand.
i see the dirty dollar in your hand.
i was your teacher long ago...
i gave it up to be your man.

rust the wind with a greasy sky.
stick a needle in my eye.
my desk is covered with broken glass.
it's not so bad to have to die.

sad and terrible.
sad and laughable.
sad and beautiful.
sort of terrible.
it’s kind of biblical
and sort of digital.
sad and beautiful.
very regrettable.
sort of pitiful.
sad and beautiful.
