lyrics

Keep on showing up
Though I've heard enough
Feel I've something to say
Pray you'll meet me halfway
Gentle handshakes, please
These hands bag groceries
Eggs on top of the cans
Break at the smallest advance
Viscous, black gall
Last bus, last call
I make strange bedfriends with the neckbears worrying the edges off Conrad

I am free to think the best of my fellow man
As you've seen they drove a nail into each hand
15 of 20, send 'em along
15 of 20, send 'em along
15 of 20, send 'em along, send 'em along

God had limits
He subdvided the months into sevens of days
Arbitrary and strange
Me, I'm much the same
Saintly only in name
I'm forgiven, what has your religion of precision given you?

I am free to think the best of my fellow man
As you've seen they drove a nail into each hand
15 of 20, send 'em along
15 of 20, send 'em along
15 of 20, send 'em along, send 'em along

Words all amount
To an anchor on a ship that's run aground
Words on a page
I recount them but all syllables they bleed the same
So I'll scream and writhe
Obscene and lithe
I'll count the days
Keep the march of time at bay
Extend a hand to the awkwardest of men
I met his eye, he just walked past my horizon

about

Aversions Vancouver, British Columbia

A quixotic mix of American post-punk and '80s post-hardcore, Aversions are eastvan work-a-days trying to live the axiom of art interlacing life. Muscular riffing, left-turn basslines and sledgehammer drumming provide the substrate for vocalist Sam Coll's acidic takes on topics big and small. ... more
