lyrics

Born once, twice when I was five
Didn't know why I was even alive
Sick, alone, and terrified
Maybe you know what it's like?

What do you do as a child?
Find out Dad's a pedophile
Couldn't find a hotline to dial

But now you hear me on the radio, oh-oh
And now I'm all up in the videos, oh-oh

They say "you've never been in love before"
I guess I'm slow
But my heart is a sure thing
It's gonna blow-oh-oh
Oh no

We're nowhere near
No, we're nowhere near
We're nowhere near the end

Best never came
Though it's probably the same
What would we do then?

I was born a sinner
I was born a sinner
I was born a sinner
And so were you

I was born a sinner
I was born a sinner
I was born a sinner
And so it goes

But now you hear me on the radio, oh-oh
And now I'm all up in the videos, oh-oh

They say "you've never been in love before"
I guess I'm slow
But my heart is a sure thing
It's gonna blow-oh-oh
Oh no

We're nowhere near
No, we're nowhere near
We're nowhere near the end

Best never came
Though it's probably the same
What would we do then?

We're nowhere near
No, we're nowhere near
We're nowhere near the end

Best never came
Though it's probably the same
What would we do then?

about

Grief Thief San Francisco, California

Grief Thief's disparate influences span decades and genres. From the godfather of grunge Neil Young and the proto-punk genius of the Velvet Underground to the the angular CBGB darlings Television, it’s hard to put a label on Grief Thief’s instantly familiar yet utterly distinct sound. Their hope is you’ll be too caught up in the tunes to give it much thought. ... more
