about

I think I was working on a heros vibe with a cars type format. It floats along in it's own little universe.

lyrics

Killing Me With Your Kindness

When you came to me
My house was filthy
I gave you ten bucks
to clean it up

When you left that day
my mind was filthy
Filled with things
like love and trust

You're killing me
With Your Kindness
You're breaking my back
With all your help
Can't you see
I really don't deserve it
I've never been this close before
I've never been
so scared

and you'd be better off
with almost anybody else
you'd be better off
standing in the street
and flagging down a passing car


You're stealing the time
I used to spend thinking
You're thinking so loud
I have to shut up

Is this how June
conceived Beaver Cleaver
Or is this how psycho-killers
start out ?

You're killing me
With Your Kindness
You're breaking my back
With all your help
Can't you see
I really don't deserve it
I've never been this close before
I've never been
so scared

and you'd be better off
with almost anybody else
you'd be better off
standing in the street
and flagging down a passing car


I can't compete with the average man
Walking down a city street
He knows what he wants
And he goes for it everyday.
