lyrics

how come i must cooperate with him
me and me and my left hand
we share something special
we call her the stranger
and strange ways we work

me and me and my best friends
we write down the unclear
into the favored vine
still i’m good in light of all the bad that i’ve done
and i took my show to the afterglow man behind the bar

now that light has been defined
i’ll crawl back into my glory

so i resigned mine my old fashioned mean times
for the be kind times, those byzantine wine rhymes
and i asked friends if i could be cool
and they said, that sounds too easy

but i tried and it was too hard
yeah i tried and it was too hard
to be good in light of all that bad that i’ve done
so i took my place in the after glow of your ebb and flow
and one must respect that a man well kept he should never know
that he tried too hard to be cool

so i set pace my to furious i bet the race to be won
and though i was not curious you showed me life could be fun
so i resigned mine my digital fun times
to the be kind mines
look, we’re boxing ourselves in
and i asked myself if i could be fun
and i said that sounds too easy

but i tried and it was to hard
yeah i tried and it was too hard
to be good in light of all that bad that i’ve done
so i took my place in the after glow of your ebb and flow
and one must respect that a man well kept he should never know
that he tried too hard
so don’t try too hard
to be fun or cool

about

Hod And the Helpers Santa Cruz, California

Hod And the Helpers is the alt-folk outlet of singer/songwriter Hod Hulphers. Their lovely psych tinged 1970s-sounding songs ask the listener to pay attention to their simplest activities. There’s an empathetic pathos to their music, a self-conscious bitterness rare in modern songwriting. The band features the talents of AJ Marquez, Dan Potthast, Greg Braithwaite, and Jeff Stultz. ... more
