a tosoff and april song
steve april vocal, guitar
adam reed bass, drums
bryon tosoff roland piano, synth piano, organ
a widescreen, unfolding, twisty story...suspiciously like a hitchcock film...
1. travellin’ salesman taping up a trunk
his wife body’s in there, now he’s gettin’ drunk,
kills her little dog for barkin’
for diggin’ in the garden,
where he’s buried her diamonds and pearls.
Who will break on thru, break on thru
the rear window?
Guy w a broken leg drinkin’ his own case of sin,
a voyeur with a telephoto lens.
2. Ms. Lonelyhearts wakes from the dead
with music playin’ in her head,
dumps her pills down the drain
jazz saxophone man playin’ in the rain
gives her a thrill, driftin’ through the open window.
Music breaks on thru, break on thru
her rear window, rear window.
People say it’s a sin,
be careful openin’ rear windows,
there’s thousands of rear windows...
