TURTLE RACE
Written by Working Breed
Lyrics by Erika June Christina Laing

Painting a black canvas red
Black and blue pictures of you in my head.
Haunting my thoughts, the words I've been fed
The earth is still warm where you left

She can have your hollow bones
Your gift horse throat
Your swindled hope
She can have your brick of gold
Your country club
I've had enough

Biting my lip on the telephone
Every day of my life is a dial tone
Swallowing blithe sustains my life until I see the light
I hope I don't miss it, I hope its bright

She can have your cheap parade
Your palisade
Your turtle race
She can have your turpentine
Your sterling shine
But your sorrow, your sorrow is mine
Its all you left behind

If you love somebody, your're fucked
If you love somebody, your're fucked
If you love somebody, your're fucked
If you love somebody, your're fucked
You're fucked, you're fucked,
You're fucked, you're fucked, you’re fucked, you’re fucked
You’re fucked, you’re fucked, Fucked

She can have your charm and grace
Your smiling eyes
Your soft embrace
She can have your entire being
As you can see clearly you meant nothing to me

about

Working Breed Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Working Breed is a scintillating quintet that writes original and eclectic Art Rock full of surprises. Described by First Angel Media as “Steely Dan turned up to 11 and rocking out in a Prohibition-era speakeasy”, their music is is a carnival of sound as the group journeys together through jaunty songs of independence, histrionic ballads of heartache, and reverent tributes to healing. ... more
