about

Before I was out of my teens, I used to do Cabaret gigs at the strip clubs on St. Kilda Road in Melbourne Australia, where soul, blues and jazz seemed to be just the ticket for keeping the dirty old men with their pants on inbetween the strip shows.

With Leave That Girl Alone, I guess I wanted to record that style of singing, while also making a vehicle for Demetri Vlass's guitar chops (from his thrash influences, no one knows he can actually play like this). I replaced the bad electric piano sound of the 70's Cabaret for a more 60's feel and sound because I will never be that desperate as to want to recreate the cabaret sound of that time. It was pretty painful.

Now it's done, don't expect to hear me do it again. Just because I can, doesn't mean I want to...although I might, if I feel like it.

___________________________________________

You should know better than me the world is coming to an end
But there’s no pill to change the plan
And everybody here is going to a party
Tv star, illegal virgin we care what you put in your hair
But we don’t worry
We don’t worry
When children starve
People die
We don’t worry
Yeah
We don’t worry
We just worry
Yeah Yeah Yeah
About cash

Why do you want to pick on me
I’m not responsible for anything
Not for your stupidity
Lack of congeniality
I’m here because I want to be
Well I didn’t see it coming
The bones and the hairlines
Reluctantly hip to the hop of transition
But I’m here now and there’s so much missing

And you don’t worry
You don’t worry
You don’t worry
You don’t worry

There is so much going on
So much trouble going on
There is so much going on
So much killing going on
There is so much going on
So much war going on
There is so much going on
There is so much going on
There is so much going on
So much war going on
And you worry about cash

You don’t worry
You don’t worry

There is so much going on
There is so much going on
There is so much going on
So much trouble going on

There is so much going on
There is so much going on
There is so much going on
So much war going on
And you worry about cash

Beautiful mind don’t you think it’s time you take back what you gave for free
You could breathe easy
Not a man
Not a woman has you loaded like a gun
Roll your barrel and have some fun for change
Don’t think about holding back
You’ve got a rage that deserves attack
Yeah
Burn gasoline
Light it up it’s time to set this old love on fire
Burn it up
Burn it down
Yeah Yeah Yeah
You said it first
Now why take back what you really mean
There’s a real condition here
An intention to fuel this speed without a word
A word or reason
You have a way of licking yourself clean of any doubt or speculation
You, you’re shining like the blade of the knife that’s sticking into my temporarily thin skin

Shining like the blade sticking into my back
Into my temporarily thin skin

Beautiful mind
I lost concentration for awhile
Had a lapse in judgement when you kissed me with your pink Mohican
Couldn’t breathe I had to start again
Got a cramp in my effection
Put your Jesus t-shirt on film
Unrelated to your action
You’re a human accident
A car crash waiting to happen when
The razor falls down on my temporarily thin skin
On my temporarily thin skin

Shining like the blade sticking into my back
Shining like the blade sticking into my back
Shining like the blade sticking into my back
Shining like the blade sticking into my back
Shining like the blade sticking into my back
Shining like the blade sticking into my back
Shining like the blade sticking into my
Into my temporarily thin skin

Yeah Yeah
