Heard the footsteps walking backwards
Fill the outlines and run in place
Queen Deceiver, Make-Believer
Anesthesia wore off today

You don’t have to give an answer
Line ‘em up one by one in a row
Take a picture, give your number
Hallelujah, I loved you so

An amusement today, inconvenience tomorrow
Sweep me under, wonder, beg and borrow
Clean the cobwebs, low ebb, tangled and true
Entertainment for three, what more could we be?
Out with the old and in with the new

Expectations, knew your rhythm
These old habits die cold and alone
Left a warm place, now it’s bone-dry
Skin on skin, touch as stiff as a stone

Left the blinders on, believed we were strong
Let the poison soak into the stings
Things happen for a reason, hang me for treason
I’ll walk, not tangle, the puppet strings

Back me up against the wall, too weary to be stunned
Corner me and tuck me in, I’d hate to fuck and run
Build me up to tear me down, you’re so fucking mature
Leave me here, alone and scared
To shiver, I despise you
Hope you choke on the words you plagiarized

Take me away (x4)

The Tet Holiday is the musical brainchild of singer/songwriter Andrew Ledford, accompanied by Austin Gibbons (bass) and Brandon Farmer (drums). Combining the pop instincts of The Jesus and Mary Chain with the passion and energy of Japandroids and The Replacements, The Tet Holiday brings naked emotion to their pop-punk rock anthems. ... more
