about

Ladies and gentlemen, listeners of all ages and philosophical inclinations, The Twin Paradox submits for your experienced consideration something that is yet to be heralded as a first (and last) in music, and temporal, history - the leap-forward throwback!

That’s right! You heard that correctly! A leap-forward throwback!

The Twin Paradox, featuring the original Verbal Sideshow line-up (some crazy how), performing something both new and classic, both fresh and stale (is that the future perfect tense of “stolen”?), a song that is at once incredibly familiar and yet never before heard . . . we humbly offer “Pugnacity”, live and direct from (mt)’s dusty cranium, and presented in future primitive isolated surround monopolyphonic sound.

lyrics

Pugnacity

(Verbal)

Yeah, I know, it’s like a struggle just to find some space
Travel alone with your mind through this time and place
No regrets, never wish I could rewind the day
Hand in hand, know together we ‘gon find a way
They say it’s easy, but it’s not always
Just believe me that when you need I’ll be there all day
Back to back, standing tall in the center of it
Here I am and this man is just never budging

It’s all or nothing, I’m giving till that well runs dry
Until the stars fall, it’s our world, until we die
Till the bell rings, till that fat lady is humming the tune
Not for nothing, something keeps me running with you
Say the word, book the flight, doesn’t matter if it took all night
If it’s wrong or if it’s right
As long as the song stays filling the air
Never alone anymore, ‘cause you’ll be feeling me there

I’m like, I’d do anything and everything for you
It’s us against the world
Me and you, whatever you need, I got that
You only have to ask me to
I’d do anything and everything for you
It’s us against the world
Anywhere, I’ll forever be there
Just say the word

I got you

(Be)

And if I ever fall back, you go that
You are the friend who I depend on
The one I rely on, and I know this much is true
So I got you, forever
And if I ever may slide by the wayside
I hitch a ride on your wings and glide on
I’ll say it three times to make it true
You know I got you

My mind is made up
Remember me, the one who gives and never gave up
The one who fights for you endlessly
This kind isn’t the kind you pay back
‘Cause me and you we go way back
And anyone can see
What I do for you, you would do for me

So, I’d do anything and everything for you
It’s us against the world
Me and you, whatever you need, I got that
You only have to ask me to
I’d do anything and everything for you
It’s us against the world
Anywhere, I’ll forever be there
Just say the word

When it’s harder to stand tall than fall
When my father don’t man up and call
When I’m only buck short and a day away
When it starts and, of course, when it’s too late

I got you when you’re laying it all on the line
Since back in the day and always
Until the end of time
And our ghosts will haunt these hallways

From homeboys to grownboys, diapers to boxers
How these tables turned, now we turntable rockers
This shit here is for my crew
Put your glass in the air, say a prayer, salud

In the now and then the hereafter
Until I take my last breath
And it will be the sound of laughter
And I will be the last one left

I’d do anything and everything for you
It’s us against the world
Me and you, whatever you need I got that
You only have to ask me to
I’d do anything and everything for you
It’s us against the world
Anywhere, I’ll forever be there
Just say the word

Now glide . . .
