​William Tell Override

This song is by Jets To Brazil and appears on the album Perfecting Loneliness (2002).

Caught making conversation to your teeth
Kite high in Tuesday ether, been gone all week
People live for such a long time
Eighty years to get one right

Jet white like all-day paper, come back blank
No time for conversation, too much to say
We think you'll live for such a long time now
You can take this as you like

This is the sun beating down your door
Feels like a gun right between the eyes
Warm in your sunshine
William Tell override

White lies and dedication, have a seat
Glass actor, swing your hammer, this isn't me
I've been searching for the right kind
One who doesn't aim so high

This is the sun, a lifelong suicide
Cold as a gun in hands that can't decide
Warm in her sunshine
William Tell override

When I took it to the man
He said we're doing all we can
And he shook my hand

This is the sun, closer than you know
Feels like a gun shining through your window
Warm in the sunshine
William Tell override
