Atherton – No Threat:

Lyrics provided by Atherton


Q-Tip told me Joni Mitchell never lies
So I really can’t listen to her music.
I just cant trust a human who is that honest
I need fiction if I’m to get through it


Ta-take-take Take a little time
To tell my mind its all right
Ta-take-take Take a little time
To tell my mind is just fine
Ta-take-take Take a little time
To tell my mind its all right
No-no-no-no threat just white lies

Verse 1

I tamed that lion for all to see
They clapped and cheered ‘oh revere me!’
‘What courage!’ they’d say on their feet all applauding
But behind the scenes the beast had false teeth
Hip dysplasia and two bum knees
A tad bit more fierce then a house cat breed
But the gig was too sweet to give up simple truth
I was three ring circus headlining Babe Ruth
Young men were moved, inspired by my bravery
And young women swooned when I glanced at ’em aimlessly
Place no blame on me for puttin’ on a show
I’m taking nothing from nobody no threat so
I’ll stick with the fiction ride it out til the death
Place my head in lions jaws and only fear bad breath
Knowing clear in my head its all a white lie
How could it be be wrong when it feels so right?


Verse 2

Cigarettes are harmless yeah spark and soak ’em in
Some surgeons invented carcinogens
And cancer to be frank doesn’t even exist
Nor does aids the plague no ones at risk
Might come as a shock but I’ve uncovered much more
Never has or will be anything called war
Viet Nam was some kids playing fighting in a forest
Misinterpreted by a couple passing tourists
who went back to the States sayingsNam was in trouble
Media exaggeration cause quite the kerfuffle
You might say ‘Whoa wait what about the people that died?’
Well they’re on vacation still using death as an alibi
Same goes for all wars give or take some details
At least it helps GI Joe makers boost sales in retail
And theirs money in those support our troops bumper stickers
The economy’s flawless everybody’s getting richer

Verse 3

You gotta half convince yourself you’re not bluffing
And ask yourself whatchu know about nothing
Yeah whatchu whatchu know about nothing at
Get a blank slate brain buffed back to white wall
The write all history present and future
Then you get platinum – where once was pewter
Then you master – where once was loser
Now you got rafters – where once was sewer
Now you got phone number over rejection
No lonely summer your swimming in pleasure
Opening shutters solely locked by your head trips
Holding the thunder only gods can connect with
Invest in the heavens where haloed angels sing
Where they bow in your presence kiss the ring of the king
And everything’s connected, everything’s true
You gotta believe me, why would I lie to you?
