lyrics

BROKEN

We don't move very much
We're like an animal that's given up
Don't leave water, don't leave food
Shut the door if you leave the room

The TV's on but we're not watching
Something's burning, we're not concerned
We had a life, it was barely living
We had a chance and we lost our turn

And we talk so much about what went wrong
We both got sick of talking
Walking away might be the easiest thing
But I don't feel like walking

The problem's in me or the problem's in you
Or the problem's in something that we both do
But the problem has moved in like a rude guest
Its departure is overdue

So let's scare the problem, let's knock it out
Let's make some noise let's start to shout
Put on a record, something you like
And we'll start drinking until we fuck or fight
Because there ain't much difference between the two
And both can banish the problem we knew

I watch you shower, I watch you sleep
I feel your sweat as you press against me
There's good reasons why we stay
But we forget them every day

We talk so much about what went wrong
Talking's become the problem
Walking away would be the smartest thing
But I don't feel like walking

Big Happy Crowd Hoboken, New Jersey

Big Happy Crowd is a Hoboken-based band exploring a skewed version of "Americana," customized with touches of lo-fi, alt- country, antifolk, old-timey death ballads, folk-rock, drones, surf music and cranky Tin Pan Alley swing. Their catalog usually falls between the bookends of lust and discomfort. ... more
