Harlan Says, by the Jazz Butcher Conspiracy

Harlan Says, by the Jazz Butcher Conspiracy

Well I've been bouncing off the walls
Cause that was all I had to work with at the time
I had nothing to say
I got a message from a friend
He keeps his number in the phone book
But I don't use it
I got nothing to say
We never ever spoke
But I listen what he tells me
Ooh I wonder what he'd tell me
I know I've got to think accurately
He doesn't suffer fools
Time's a-wasting
So now I've got no mouth but I'm still screaming

Chorus:

And Harlan
Harlan says we're not alone
But I'm still waiting
With all these rags
By my telephone


There's a mad old boy in a Batman baseball cap down at the intersection
Waiting till the cavalry arrives
Like every day had its own meaning
Everyone would have its colour
So did numbers...
What the hell, it's only our lives.

Chorus:

And Harlan
Harlan says we're not alone
But I'm still waiting
With all these rags
By my telephone


Jefty is the boy next door
And Jefty is five
The same as he was in 1954
A boy and his dog
Alone against tomorrow
Alone against tomorrow
People could lose their grip
And deep below the Earth
In caves the size of Africa
Infinitely slowly
The pain is rarified and tainted to our special needs
Always
Cause I can't live with myself if living's without you

Chorus:

And Harlan
Harlan says we're not alone
But I'm still waiting
With all these rags
By my telephone


Oh there must be millions like us
Millions
Outside

You know all about it...

And I'm standing here
While you know all about it
You know all about it

There's one more thing, girl:
It's so tough knowing where you are...

It's so tough knowing where you are
And I just don't seem to get out that much these days.
I want to hold you in my arms.

-The Gneech

PS: Just about my favorite band in the universe, or certainly one of the top five, singing about somebody who's had a big, if indirect, influence on me. How can I not like it?
