the bully overdosed
and we felt sad
my buddy messaged me
and asked about my dad

the mom's a shut in
and the dad's gone nuts for guns
can't come to visit
so we talk about
drugs and candy.
drugs and candy.

the open question is
what happened to that guy
tattooed and out of jail
and letting the bird fly

the middle finger
and a pit bull on a chain
can't understand it
can't feel anything
but drugs and candy
drugs and candy

well after midnight
im conversing with a girl
maternal surgeon
from a fondly distant world

no innuendo
when we joke of ecstasy
an awkward handshake
and we talk about
drugs and candy
drugs and candy

goodbye to Mongo
and good bye to jelly beans
goodbye to Basso
and goodbye to wasabi

goodbye espresso
and goodbye to ecstasy
good night to Jeannie
and good morning to
my drugs and candy
drugs and candy.

REDadmiral is a 4 piece molecule out of Burlington VT,
the elements of which have lived and worked the map from Baltimore, to Philadelphia, Down-east Maine, to Chicago, NYC to California, and back. Combined to mix a whip-smart, no-nonsense sonic cocktail as raw and beautiful as any down-to-earth landscape served with a crooked smile.
