This is the single from my upcoming record, with a release planned for spring.


The Fix Is In

He pulls down the blinds
and turns on the TV.
The images flash
already dead on the screen.
He takes off his bag
and rummages through it.
He told his mother
he never would do it
but the fix is in.

When it hits him it hits
like a fist full of love,
like a passionate kiss
from an angel above.
Outside the traffic
roars soft like the sea
and the afternoon rocks him,
little baby, to sleep
till it ends.
The fix is in.

He’s tried to fight it
but the game it was rigged.
Tried to bite the bullet
but the bullet’s too big.
Looked for the exit
but the exit’s been locked.
Found the back entrance
to find it’s been blocked.
It’s a sin
but the fix is in.
