Quick Summary:

Venturesome Returns To His Steely Danesque Style Of Writing

Media Description:

I actually wrote this in 2013.  Growing up, we did have a Gran Torino station wagon, but this is actually about a couple perhaps, who totally live in the past and want nothing to do with today's news or technology. There are a few out there like that, I'm sure. The Channel F in the lyrics refers to a Pong themed home gaming system from the mid 70's that was short lived.  Snake Hill refers to a section of roadway on Mercer Island's north end which went downhill in a snake like fashion.  I originally showed this on the indiemusic.space website, but decided to bring it here.

Well this house will stand for five more years

And the way we live life doesn't seem to change

But you know we do it to ourselves gottta hide hide hide

Yes that's right we do it to ourselves gotta hide hide hide

Time freezes here


Watch me taking out the Gran Torino

Watch me pull it out onto the road


You say I wear the same shirt every day

While we play Channel F and look at the shag

And don't tell me about the water heater gotta hide hide hide

I know it's been going bad for years gotta hide hide hide

But time freezes here


Watch me drive around my Gran Tornio

Watch me do the curves around Snake Hill


And don't tell me what to do

When you say walk, I'd run

And when you'd say stop, I'd go

Don't lay it on the line

I'm fast when you are slow

And when I say stop you go


Should I be impressed with your friends

With your technology and your karaoke bars

Well you go ahead send your selfies gotta hide hide hide

Back to the attic artifacts gotta hide hide hide

Time freezes here

Watch me put away my Gran Tornio

Watch me put the keys under the drawer


And don't tell me what to do

When you say walk, I'd run

And when you'd say stop, I'd go

Don't lay it on the line

I'm fast when you are slow

And when I say stop you go
