Fisherian Runaway (poison frog song)

August 15, 2017 2:31 PM

First song written and recorded since I moved to Napa. Spooky grungy punk that maybe doesn't reflect my sunny new locale. Written about my drummer's frustration with dating, online and otherwise. Lyrics in fold.

Touch the blissful tips to your crisp full lips. All the pretty frogs are poisonous. So it's root root root for the home team: if they don't win it's a riot. Shoot for a love scene. Do it loud, do it proud or be quiet.

And it's an honor just to be considered, even if you don't take the prize. So go and dip your tongue in honey, 'cause honey that's how you catch flies.

It's the wistful sips and the pistol grips. But all the pretty frogs are poisonous. It's us ugly ones you ought to kiss. Like a blue jumpsuit on a blue screen: it's a good way to be a ghost. Could I snag your heart by a loose seam? That's a wrap. we'll just fix it in post.

And it's an honor just to be considered even if you don't take the prize, when just a nod from the right direction is worth an awful lot of eyes. And all those handsome, spreading peacocks take up the halls from side to side. I guess you're gonna have to knock some over. Hey, you're just trying to get by.

This is fantastic and I really like the lyric - full of playful in-rhyme and delightful images :-)
