lyrics

The newspapers are in intensive care, dropping circulation has them gasping for air. And the television bullies radio, it ain't been a fair fight since Farnsworth made it glow. And the world is a mystery, I don't want to solve it, I don't want to start an argument and later resolve it, you can deputize God but I don't want to try it, Joe Strummer is my co-pilot. Our teachers tried to tell us but we had some beer to drink, that every lifetime contract gets signed with vanishing ink. We offered explanations but the words just came out wrong, so we searched for revelations in three-minute songs. And the world is a mystery, I don't want to solve it, I don't want to start an argument and later resolve it, you can deputize God but I don't want to try it, Joe Strummer is my co-pilot. (I hear what he's sayin'. Get that cheese grater goin, against the grain.) I ain't never been to Brixton but I think if I ever went, I'd find it redeveloped and them charging higher rent. And I ain't never been to Hammersmith but I think if I ever go, I'll run into a white man who don't know which is Joe. And the world is a mystery, I don't want to solve it. I don't want to start an argument and later resolve it, you can deputize God but I don't want to try it, Joe Strummer is my co-pilot.

about

Milk Carton Superstars Orlando, Florida

Milk Carton Superstars make songs out of guitars, drums and some reasonable words. Later Never Now is their new album.
The band formed in 2007 when Guy Larmay (guitars, bass) and Jim Myers (vocals, drums) began writing songs together again for the first time. They're often joined on stage by bassist Jeff Boyce and violinist Jennie Landau, and in the studio by producer Justin Beckler.
