Here comes the tension and the headaches again
The peace of mind I thought I'd find was all pretend
And now the truth
I'm not a prophet, not divine
Wish I could have the proof in no uncertain terms this time

But I won't beg and plead
Won't rip holes into my jeans
Kneeling at the altar of you

Lay your head on my shoulder
I was born to ignore you
We have been here before, you and I
We'll laugh it off , (I'm sure) (x2)

In the confessional we sit side by side
The words come tumbling out, a year's regrets, my tongue untied
And at your feet
The distance between lust and love is narrowing and bleak
Low-hanging fruit, left to rot on the vine

But I won't hope and pray
Can't find religion in a day
Hoping for some space in your mind

We've answered the call
Dead air, broken hearts
Eyelash clings to my cheek
Lightest touch leaves me feeling weak

We've answered this time
Pins and needles run through my spine
The first and the last
I didn't mean to make you nervous but I'm too polite to ask you

The Tet Holiday Oakland, California

The Tet Holiday is Andrew Ledford (vocals/guitar), Austin Gibbons (bass), and Brandon Farmer (drums). Swirling The Jesus and Mary Chain's noise-pop melodicism, Ride's shimmering dreamscapes, The Stone Roses' dance-informed psychedelia, and Japandroids' pack-the-room punk energy, The Tet Holiday balances bittersweet introspection with anthemic, crushing rock 'n' roll. ... more
