about

Spanish-flavored, funky minor key dance about staying positive and not screwing everything up. Recorded June 2013.

lyrics

Well you can take, all that you can make
You can burn it to the ground
And you can break everything that’s fake
You can seize and shake and pound
And why not?

You can preserve most of what you have
Or you can blow the wad in five
You can deserve it when your wife is mad
Or you can buckle and survive

Well, it’s not too late to untwist your fate
But don’t lose your sense of beauty

You can debate everything you hate
You can even help keep score
You can berate all the clouds you skate
You can taunt yourself some more
And why not?

You can forget everything you’ve set
Your plans and schemes and goals
You can regret everything you’ve bet
Your love and rock and roll

But it’s not too late to untwist your fate
Just don’t lose your sense of beauty

Run like a dog, run like a dog on your feet
Run like a dog, spring like a dog on your meat
No one’s holding a grudge, they won’t see you coming
Take aim and be judged and just don’t stop running

'Cause it's not too late to untwist your fate
Just don't lose your sense of beauty
And it's not too late to refuse the hate
Just don't lose your sense of beauty
It's not too long to admit you were wrong
And use your sense of beauty
