In The Blink Of An Eye

Lowest of the Low

Record Details


In The Blink Of An Eye

One minute you’re a pauper prince
Emperor of the garage
A ’67 Tele and an unsuccessful marriage
Next you’re just another fuckin’ zombie in a dark blue tie
In the blink of an eye

Drink to new beginnings and talkin’ revolution
Complicated kindnesses and difficult solutions
Once it was an army, now it’s only me, myself and I
In the blink of an eye

Disappointment, unemployment
Sit on your ass
Desperation, the new sensation
That train has passed
They say the child’s the one who fathers the man
The clock is tickin’ son
It’s tickin’ so fast

Another Monday morning
You stare into the mirror
A stranger looking back at you
A monumental zero
A bullet hits a chamber and the pigeons hit the blood red sky
In the blink of an eye

I’m gonna hit the city late (tonight, tonight)
I’m gonna set the record straight (alright, alright)
I’m gonna live this lifetime three times before I die
In the blink of an eye
