Pirannah EP

Pirannah

Listen Now:

She’ll only get you in a lot of trouble
She only wants to burst your bubble
She will never take care of you
She’ll only put a scare in you

You miss her temper and you miss her fury
Her heart is just like a hangman jury
The court’s adjourned and the verdict is in
Well you just can’t lose and you just can’t win

Chorus:
There’s plenty of fish in the sea
But you’re a pirannha
You say you wanna be with me
But I don’t wanna

Daddy’s little debutante is ready for society
Is anybody ready for her?
Unleashed upon unsuspecting masses
Her back draft leaves you in the ashes

She’s got you hooked; you’re in a quandary
She only speaks in double entendrees
She snaps your neck after you make love
Well you’re down below and she’s up above
James Rustad: vocals, guitar, bass

Trojan Horse of Love

Listen Now:

I don’t know what possessed you to think you could possess me
Just because you impressed me you think it would be that easy

I know you think I am a fool
Sitting through a lot of school
I know that you think that you’re too cool
You gotta follow the Golden Rule

Chorus:
Trojan horse of love – I know you are hiding inside
Trojan horse of love – pull the sheets over my eyes

There must be something in the water because you’re your father’s daughter
You invite me to the slaughter, but I say “I’d rather not”

When you kick me in the teeth with glee
I don’t want an RSVP
One day you talk about our destiny
Then you want to get rid of me

Chorus:
Trojan horse of love – I know you are hiding inside
Trojan horse of love – pull the sheets over my eyes

Bridge:
I won’t be surprised with any of your alibis
You say it’s now or forever – I think that it will be never
I don’t need any of your lies – I don’t need any of them
James Rustad: vocals, guitar, bass
Jim Perry: drums

Presentation Celebration

Listen Now:

Old men selling flowers on the street
Buy a bouquet for when we meet
You have some big plans for today
Locked in your father’s menagerie

With your headdress and your white flowing gown
Preparing for parades across the town
When you walk into the room they all applaud
Your earrings transmit the voice of God

Chorus:
Are you ready for the Presentation?
Are you ready for the Celebration?
It’s your day – it’s your year
Anything for you my dear

He rides in on his big white stallion
And he’s holding your medallion
WIth your scepter and your regal throne
Did you ever think you would be alone?

Your high heels on a pillow by the floor
Your flat shoes sitting by the door
Now has come the time to change your shoes
Did you ever think you’d sing the blues?
James Rustad: vocals, guitar, bass
