She won't be people's amusement, no.
She's so determined to find have she wants
And she's not done. She'll make her own fun
Don't you dare make her bored
I didn't know we had problems, see
I thought her silence just sang of contentment
I was so wrong. She held back for so long
Had some surprises for me
Turns out I'm not the sun that lights my baby's world
Just a moon held tight in her orbit that she'd let go
To drift into space
She's started putting her records on
And no more cheerfully tagging along with me
Every night just to be polite
Oh yeah, her patience is gone
Turns out I'm not the flame that heats my baby's heart
Just a flickering bulb that she could
Just unscrew. Replace with something new
Yeah, I'd better get smart
She had, she had, she had enough of being adored
She knew, she knew, she knew she wanted something more
She gave, she gave, she gave me one last chance to please
I'll try, I'll try to change, but I know I
Can't give her everything she needs

The title says it all; Garden of Earthly Delights is this generation's newest Celebration of XTC.
Any doubts about the sincerity, just go straight to Chris Price's "Ballad..."
From there, Xplore then get back to the original XTC. Anthony B Cook
Nick Piunti's third album confirms the idiosyncratic talent of this musician who keeps churning out fantastic power-pop tunes that would rejoice even the most jaded pop-rock fan, whether young or old, if they knew about the existence of 'Beyond the Static'. POPPHIL
