about

Gary Glitter guitar, harpsichord, horns and jumping piano adorn this romping stomping track about the perils of entanglement with people stuck in cycles of dysfunction, sung in the Morgan sultry style with the hallmark lyrical and melodic impact.

Features Gar Robertson's crunchy guitar counter-melody plus bells, strings, trumpets, barrel-house piano, and trashy percussion accents.

lyrics

I'm going back in time
I'm gonna bust this rhyme
Wide open where it starts

I'm going down the trail
If there's a holy grail
I'm gonna break this chain of hearts

Is it all in the luck of the draw
Is it all in the pull of the straw

If they've been abandoned they'll leave you
And if they've been bitten they'll bite
If they've been mislead they'll deceive you
You're just a gray cat in the night

I know the cost incurred
And that our every word's
A step toward the brink

Into the devil's dance
High on a tightrope trance
We're gonna feel before we think

And the fruit bears a worm in the stalk
And the root brings the word to the walk

If home is a hope that was broken
The name of the game's sleight of heart
You're left sifting words they have spoken
Blind to the dark of the art

Digging for treasure lost
Tripping on wires crossed
What land mines lie in wait

Why do you reach for me
Like I can set you free
Doing as you've been done to
Don't make me who you run to

And don't take the blame they will lay at
Your feet for the length of the run
Their grief is the altar they pray at
You're just in the way of the gun

If they've been abandoned they'll leave you
And if they've been bitten they'll bite
If they've been mislead they'll deceive you
You're just a grey cat in the night
