Peculiar Pastimes

from by Dead Shed Jokers



Featured on our debut album Peyote Smile.


Face to face I’m a misfit
Service with a smile
In time will you forgive me?

Apple of my eye
You encourage me
Pray that you survive
In time will I feel guilty?

But who are you to tell me to stop?
This business is cut-throat
With a price on what I love the most
That you’ll never afford, No

Lights down low
The radio informs me of my crimes
Questions why?
The answer is beyond me

Borrowed time
A cigarette steadies the shaking hand
Until then I will be thinking of you
And all the things that I have done
The screams I’ve caught
The corners turned
Forgiveness is so cheap these days
Redemption seems a lifetime away

But who are you to tell me to stop?

Timeless, immediate, and utterly vital Dead Shed Jokers are a rare beast at once original and yet somehow not of this time
