Story behind the song
This song was inspired by the late, great, Warren Zevon, and his way with a quick beat, a clever lyric, and a dangerous situation. Hopefully this song captures a small piece of his style. Recorded on the 788. Buy the CD!
Lyrics
I'm crawling through the minefield like it was paved with good intentions And I'm mindful where I'm walking don't want to blow some loose connections If you put poison in my tea I'll switch the cups and wait and see Danger's not my middle name at least until I find someone to blame Now I'm rowing through the ocean in a boat that's made of soap When it comes out in the wash will I return with just a rope? And if I see a falling light be it bomb, or meteorite Find a way to get a thrill If I live another day, I will Dancing in a hurricane sleeping through the earthquake danger isn't nothing but a way to live my life It's tea and insurrection a black-tie revolution I don't lock the door when I'm sleeping with your wife While I'm perched upon the tightrope I'm ignoring any glances Cause the view is not appealing when I'm taking all these chances And if I pass a shady fella avoid his deadly umbrella Even in the deepest night mind your toes just in case I'm right Dancing in a hurricane sleeping through the earthquake danger isn't nothing but a way to live my life It's tea and insurrection watch out for infection I don't lock the door when I'm sleeping with your wife Dancing in a hurricane sleeping through the earthquake danger isn't nothing but a way to live my life It's tea and insurrection a guerilla resurrection I don't lock the door when I'm sleeping with your wife
