Song lyrics:

Who ever heard of fun again if you don't have your plants and pets
And in the middle of the night your dreams never haunt your rest

Words that fizzle underneath oyster shells and aged scotch that breathes
Familiar signs of life retreat and all that's left is sage advice

Tape hiss reeling from beyond
As feedback finds its way to dawn

If Royal's camp began what Malcolm Street became
At least that's fun again

Who ever heard of Tinseltown knowing play is a stop button
Mechanically inclined to reach the end and reveal exposed beams

Dirt that cascades from cracks above
A cat that spies through holes in the rug
Shuck your oysters and tilt your mug, the gliss of sweet rewind

Tape hiss reeling from beyond
As feedback finds its way to dawn

If Royal's camp began what Malcolm Street became
At least that's fun again

Who ever heard of fun again if you can't even break bread with friends
Without worry of a second wind for yet another second coming
