Break the back of normalcy
Realize what we've got
Should I lie to you and tell you that I'm happy?
Keep pretending that I'm sorry when I'm not?

Bear the brunt of your sympathy
Meet your gaze with a wink
I left some money on the table just to be here
Ceiling fan diplomacy and drown in drink

You didn't play the part
You didn't write the scene
The devil in the details
Skin-tight blue jeans

You make me happy when I'm down
Tide me over 'til you're around
Bend the daylight in my hands
Broken pieces, strange demands

Set the table for the angels
Have my hands on anything that I can take
I felt the minor-key descent into the darkness
I thought for once I'd know exactly what to say

Hire the new au pair
You wouldn't stand in line
You couldn't get me off
The ravages of time

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
