Elementary Penguins

1- My Closet Full of Ghosts


music and lyric by Bryan Baker

Could this explain my strange attraction

Imagination can get carried away

Reduced by small subtractions

That never mattered in the first place

I often wonder what it meant to you

And did you get what you wanted?

Was it something that I didn’t do

That leaves me feeling haunted?

Now don’t be scared

We’ve made it through, almost

No, don’t be scared

It’s just my closet full of ghosts

Am I tethered to the wrong one

And dangling like a false move?

Have I lost this fight to passion?

My subscription can’t be renewed

Now don’t be scared

We’ve made it through, almost

No, don’t be scared

It’s just my closet full of ghosts

Am I the last again to realize

I’ll be left alone to wonder

How can such a great big blue sky

Be the thing I am trapped under?

Now don’t be scared

We’ve made it through, almost

No, don’t be scared

It’s just my closet full of ghosts

2- ‘Til the Money’s Gone


music and lyric by Bryan Baker

This living from hand to mouth gets me down

The future’s always in doubt

Nothing to do but sit and wait for fortune

To turn my frown upside down

Monday comes and I am off to earn a paycheck

I’m glad to be fed

But workin for the bossman’s something I don’t understand

I never seem to get ahead

chorus

You know it’s not long ‘til the money’s gone

It’s never long ‘til the money’s gone

You know it’s not long ‘til the money’s gone

It’s never long ‘til the money’s gone

I’m losing touch with the little child

He ran away

‘Cos I’m selling my soul and shutting down ‘til Friday

I’m so afraid

chorus

chorus

I feel chained like a slave - oh, do you understand?

Do you see the things I see

I wanna leave it in the dust, why don’t you and I just

Run away and let it be?

chorus

chorus

Originally written in 1983 for the Confetti Rain cassette album. Rerecorded February 2011.
