about

As the story goes, a homeless man approached my person in a vast, Canadian urban expanse and made a sordid declaration of human right and passage. I then conferred upon a soldier friend, off to serve our country, in a far-away land...the rest, in living song, is history. Enjoy the 'neo-noir' waltz.

lyrics

Do you dabble in culture?
Buy a painting once in awhile?
Head off to see the movies...
To keep it so alive
If that's what you do it's all right

I didn't come here to talk pixels
Split hairs or be cruel
Now you should know your babble is drivel
It's getting the best of you

From dawn 'til dusk we do what we must
With one philosophy
We take care of all our needs
I just discovered a reason

I Don't like you
I Only like Bach
Bach

You have really got to stick to your guns
When you are over in Bosnia
Defending those lines of trust
When something comes overs you
It gets done
It takes a lot of courage

From the depths of darkness
to the downfall of Rome
You are a self-made man
Who thanks no one
What have you done lately for me?
When all this life is merely given
After all I just stand on this street corner

I Don't like you
I Only like Bach
Bach...

Well my world is getting crazy
Maybe I should stop!
My neighbors are not as friendly or even thankful
for what they are not
You know I could have been a lawyer, a fireman, a cop
But after all I just stand on this street corner and give it everything

I Don't like you
I Only like Bach
Bach, Bach...

Do you dabble in culture?
Buy a painting once in awhile?
Head off to see the movies...
To keep it so alive

I Don't like you
I Only like Bach
