Colorblind James Experience – Solid! Behind The Times lyrics

A cloud passed by, a wave crashed over me
I'm solid! Solid behind the times
Once I was so modern I could not bend my knees
But now I'm solid! Solid behind the times

How extravagant to be nice
But right now I need my disciple polish
Some day I'll settle into a contented stupor of my own
But for now I'm solid! Solid behind the times

We were dancing, you were distracted
I said something I should have retracted
But it probably wouldn't have mattered

I placed the morning newspaper under the growlight and watched as my little room was turned into a battleground
Fire and thunder roared out from under the sofa
Hundreds of screaming foreigners, many of hem wounded, chased me around my bed
I reached for the growlight switch; it broke in my hand
With not a second to spare I jumped onto a Greyhound bus and was driven deep into the heartland
I'll be save here
Solid behind the times

Quick stop in a small cafй
What's the special of the day?
Cream of the only hat that ever fit me soup
Solid! Solid behind the times
