about

(Music: Cory Seznec/John McKay, Lyrics: Cory Seznec)

lyrics

Shoulder shaking chat chewing lurching in the street
Drinking that Ethio-moonshine knocks you off your feet
Hole in your head, your eyes are red
But the time has come to go sing for your bread

Is that just evaporation or an imminent conflagration

It's a
FIRE ON THE LINE
FIRE ON THE LINE...

Wire up the speakers that would drown millenium hall
For a gig in a dive bar the size of a Merkato stall
Load in the gear but something's wrong overhead
Holum Amano, chegerellum until someone said

Is that just evaporation or an imminent conflagration

It's a
FIRE ON THE LINE
FIRE ON THE LINE...
