about

a song about spending most of your awake hours with people that you only share work with.

lyrics

This is the time, the time that we have
we better make haste, while we still can
This is the can, where we put all the time
and make a footnote to remember the date
Fruitful of dates the tracking of time
we're over the quota of fruits and their labor
Fearful of time the ticking of tolls
we're under the radar belabored, belabored.
The tick of the talk
the toll of the bell
the screech of the chalk
on blackboards in hell
the ringing of thoughts
the ringing, the ringing
where is the pittance
we show for our time?
-
The tick of the talk
the toll of the bell
the screech of the fowl
are blackbirds in hell
the ringing of thoughts
the ringing, the ringing
where is the pennance you
paid for our time?
<instr>
This is the clock that tells all the time
If you set it forward you travel in time
This is the tell of something's gone missing
Extolling the presense of something unheard
Fruitful of dates the tracking of time
we're over the quota of fruits and their labor
Fearful of time the ticking of tolls
we're under the radar belabored, belabored.
The tick of the talk
the toll of the bell
the screech of the chalk
on blackboards in hell
the ringing of thoughts
the ringing, the ringing
where is the pittance
we show for our time?
-
The tick of the talk
the toll of the bell
the screech of the fowl
are blackbirds in hell
the ringing of thoughts
the ringing, the ringing
where is the pennance you
paid for our time?
<instr>

illicitizen New York, New York

Illicitizen are a varied mix of thought provoking lyrics, melodic bass grooves and spikey guitars. Without fail the duo is noted for exposing norm violating rhythms and lyrical eccentricities. The constants are dramatic and demonstrative vocals and a stimulating bass beat. ... more
