Lyrics

Turn
(copyright 1999 by Mike Luno and Curtis Leippi)
verse 1
It's almost peaceful - like the calm before the sequel
With just a few signs of struggle
I'm good for nothing but to lie here watching
'Til I can crawl back inside
They got the jump on me as I was fumbling for my keys
I guess my guard was down - they fed my my complacency
(chorus)
You'll never believe who my friends have turned out to be
They got away with a generous piece of me
I'll be damned if they didn't get the last one
verse 2
Judas whispered 'Christ we'll miss you -
but we didn't think that you'd get signed
The cost of business dictates I do this
By tomorrow noon you'll understand.'
'Don't worry, Judas,
I would do the same if I were you
Go where the gigs pay -
no one's big enough to hang with you.'
(chorus)
verse 3
The band's been paid off - they packed up and made off
It's thirsty work just hangin' out
I know what I'm doing if it means my ruin
And that's not hard to imagine now
(chorus)
alt. chorus:
Their bellies are full but they're out playin' skin and bone
Starving souls, just let them eat telephones
I'll be damned if they didn't get the last one
They've got it for sale in the tradepaper classifieds
Easy money for a musical suicide
I'll be damned if they didn't get the last one
