lyrics

Gather your wares and prepare for a toll
Crossings have fares, bridges their undead trolls

Armor yourself in the gifts of viziers
Harbor top-shelf, graveyard-shift Belvedere

Solemnly it sings to you in your velvet chair
You sit until you're fringed with blue in your underwear
You sit until you're told, "this ain't no rock and roll
so crawl into the fold..."

You ain’t no rock and roll.

Ponder the drapes, the well-placed souvenir of
a wandering traipse: Turkish vase stuffed with liras

They say that no one's called a truce with the neighborhood
by polishing off a tall chartreuse and a spruce-like wood:
a smallish new flagpole!

This ain’t no rock and roll.
You ain’t no rock and roll.

Now all that you chased and forgot
you have vowed not to retrace – let it rot
Go on and howl in the chains that you linked and wrought
some kind of scowl spread on your face like an inkblot
It's not going to stop

Caverns unwind, sugarglass darkly shimmers
Catacomb-twined, jagged mines spark and glimmer
Staggering blind, you will pass through the mirror
what will you find, saturnine disappearer?

In radiant merlot and chrome you are moving on
like soldiers on furlough at home sail across that pond
back to a distant shoal

You ain’t no rock and roll.
We ain’t no rock and roll fun!

Supreme Fiction Durham, North Carolina

Supreme Fiction makes music about communists, existential crises, zombies, and lovesickness (and, of course, zombie lovesickness). The Carrboro and Durham-based five-piece creates melodic, energetic pop awash in sugary hooks and group harmonies, shot through with nervous surrealism, and tempered with submerged melancholy. ... more
