Napoleon Solo

Album: In/Casino/Out (1998)
  • Cut and paste
    Were you sitting down
    On the beaded impotence of New Orleans
    A hint of suspense when that telephone rings

    This is forever
    It paved a wave of distance
    Between a syntax error
    From Austin's yellow brick road
    This is forever
    From this Texas breath
    Exhaled no sign of relief

    This you know, this you know this is forever
    March 23rd hushed the wind the music died
    If you can't get the best of us now
    It's because this forever
    Makes no difference our alphabet
    Is missing letters
    17 embalmed and caskets lowered
    Into the weather
    A drizzle brisk and profound
    From this Texas breath
    Exhaled no sign of relief
    This is forever

    We're struck by the chords from their hearts
    This is forever this is forever
    From this Texas breath
    Exhaled no sign of relief
