about

Dead and Lovely Reading, Pennsylvania

Dead And Lovely is a sometimes acoustic band made up of various low-functioning semi-adults, born from the minds of Jayda Hampton and John Levan some time after that gin and juice party but before that boilo night.

Track Name: so what?
So what if I've done that thing I do all the time
and if it's abuse the way we instigate with our obsolete medium?
So what's done's been done. Just let it loop, don't resist.
Just let me hum soft things to you and you can close your eyes
and pretend you can see em. And it goes like a ghost.
Track Name: heavy sleepers
Wake up and roll around.
Untangle your feet as your heart begins to pound
to the chorus of cans and bottles
as you knock all of them down and walk out.
Heavy sleepers never find out about things
They're no better, they're just better lost than found.
I always forget how I found my bed or what you just said
So can you tell me once again?
Get up to go back down
The bar's out of reach and the room spins round and round
to raucous applause and laughter as you pass out on the ground.
All out.
Heavy sleepers never find out about things
they know better, they're just better lost than found.
I always forget how I found my bed or what you just said
So can you tell me once again?
Track Name: respirator
Codeine-cough the lining of my lungs up.
Would you take whatever you can get?
Keep it in your refrigerator,
they can throw away the rest.
Codeine-cough the lining of my lungs up.
I'll leave you with whatever little's left
to stitch it to your respirator.
I don't want to heal, I only want to breathe your breath.
I wanna breathe your breath so let me.
Track Name: killing time
Rest your dirty little hands.
Don't til and don't toil
I'll remove your feet from land.
I'll show you the city
where they swim in the fountains
and tell you about love and theft.
Gotta scare off the crows
send em up in the mountains
or catch em and keep em like doves.
When I whisper like this
something once worth stealing
I won't care where from.
We can act like it's not killing time but I'll be the first one
to try and flash back like it's stored in the spine.
Blow it up and bring it to light.
Track Name: stones
I threw stones at your window
from down below the house where you used to live.
I should've known you'd be a ghost,
I should've known you'd have no time to waste.
Although we once told time as the trains rolled by
on the hour past your front porch,
the frequent glow from your cell phone
let me know I'd made a mistake.
Now I'm just gonna bring you down.
