A Spy In The 9 To 5

Do Good Assassins

Record Details

Released:
2012
Genre:
Rock/Country

For every passionate plea or perverse deceit
And every beautiful word that the world defeats
You sang a heartbroken song through the city streets
From the record shops to the subway stations
All the malaprops and the meditations
Of an urban man’s little degradations
In the day to day

Did you feel like a spy in the nine to five
Or like an angel convinced that he’s still alive
Maybe a little of both as the party dives
From the steep incline of a Roman profile
To the Easter Island of your crooked smile
Can they read your mind like a broken sundial
On a cloudy day?

Grace and light
Peace and war
Grace and light, the morning after the night before
Grace the tried and true
Light a candle to replace the light
Mourning the night before

Grace and light
Peace and war
Grace and light, the morning after the night before
Grace the tried and true
Light a candle to replace the light
Mourning the night
