about

Layers of guitar & trumpet give this song a lot of swagger while addressing the topic of people who seem spooky & dangerous (“Don’t touch his stuff, don’t ring his bell…don’t look him in the eye”). About people perhaps best avoided, unless you’re feeling very brave (“Don’t know what you’ll find, in that place he calls his mind. Don’t know what lingers there , take a look if you dare”).

lyrics

Don’t touch his stuff
don’t ring his bell
don’t look him in the eye
Don’t cross his path
or grace his door
someone here might die

Don’t know what you’ll find
in that place he calls his mind
Don’t know what lingers there
take a look if you dare

Don’t say his name
don’t speak out loud
don’t let him hear a word
Don’t call his phone
or listen close
be the last you’ve heard

Don’t take a seat
don’t drink his brew
don’t wonder what you believe
Don’t breathe his air
or brush his arm
‘cause you’ll never leave

Don’t know what you’ll find
in that place he calls his mind
Don’t know what lingers there
take a look if you dare

Don’t move an inch
or leave a trace
don’t leave him any clues
Don’t hesitate
don’t take a ride
‘cause you’ll pay the dues….

Don’t know what you’ll find
in that place he calls his mind
Don’t know what lingers there
take a look if you dare

Sometimes the world gets thin
which side you living in
it’s times like these
guys like him move through with ease
