lyrics

MICROCOSM

Every time you say to me the world is gunna die
I just smile to myself and put it gently on the shelf
Because the world will keep on turning long after we are gone
When a parasite dies, the host moves on so I’ll keep

Studying, and studying, and studying, and studying,
And searching for the truth, for every little scrap of truth
You step backwards, forwards, always scanning centrally
Just searching for the image
Of a thing that you might find to be a

Caustic microcosm of the microcosmic
World in which you live in with me
And there’s a pattern to the puzzle
But the product never turns the way you want it to be

So I say hum-de-lolly hum-de-lay, what’s it matter anyways
You’ll never find the answer, and death will find you anyways
But I believe in truth, I believe in observation and
I know it’s all flawed,
This dirty lense to view the shape of my world

They say you can be your own provider
If you find the patterns in the salt and the sand,
And in the process of the man the one
Gives you your directions, tells you when to sit and stand,
When to lick his boots, when not to lick his boots so you keep

Studying, and studying, and studying, and studying,
And searching for the truth, for every little scrap of truth
You step backwards, forwards, always scanning centrally
Just searching for the image
Of a thing that you might find to be a

Caustic microcosm of the microcosmic
World in which you live in with me
And there’s a pattern to the puzzle
But the product never turns the way you want it to be

So I say hum-de-lolly hum-de-lay, what’s it matter anyways
You’ll never find the answer, and death will find you anyways
But I believe in truth, I believe in observation and
I know it’s all flawed,
This dirty lense to view the shape of my world

The Peekaboos are a four piece rock ‘n’ roll band from Chicago, IL. The Peekaboos, being musicians have also drawn similarities to the historical fool performer. Being ones who are here to amuse, but also criticize and deliver the harsh truths that drive us to insanity if not delivered so comically. On June 29th, 2013 the Peekaboos release their debut LP Stay Positive. ... more
