I saw you standing in line, you asked if I had the time You oughtta learn somehow, the only time is now CHORUS Life is not a waiting room, 'til you find out you're at the end of the line Time is on your side, 'til you realize that love has gone by You're at the right place at the wrong time You're in the rat race on the wrong side It hurts just to open your eyes And you're still standing at the end of the line Life is not a waiting room, 'til you find out you're at the end of the line They made you wait for so long, love rang but you were not home While you were waiting in line, love went and left you behind REPEAT CHORUS
I found you with red tears in your eyes I asked you what is your name, you offered no reply Should I call a doctor? For I fear you might be dead But I just lay down beside you, and held your hand... I fell in love with you, now you are my only one 'Cause all my life I been so blue, but in that moment you fulfilled me I fell in love with a dead boy Now I will tell all my friends, and I'll tell my family Oh such a beautiful boy Now I write letters to Australia Now I throw bottles out to sea No one's gonna take you away from me Oh such a beautiful boy I fell in love with a dead boy... Are you a boy? Are you a girl? Oh such a beautiful boy!
Scarcity 03:01 video
I just wrote a love letter, to the person that I might have been If there'd been no disruption, free from all the corruption Scarcity has fucked with me, it's a mentality How different life would be, if not for scarcity It offers no protection, even with the rejection It's not reality, I don't need charity Oh oh oh, no.... I threw out that toxic shit that I clung to all of these years It's finally come to pass, you've gone out with the trash Scarcity had made me see, you as some rarity I let you stay with me, it fuckin' blinded me I lived off of the scraps, kept myself under wraps Now I've got clarity, there is no scarcity Oh oh oh, no...


"The Life is Not a Waiting Room EP features gritty bluesy saxophone infused garage punk complementing LVP’s powerful while deeply warming honeyed vocal. On the flipside, Scarcity has dipped its toes in 1960’s adding an overall Shangri-La’s type sheen to the song. Love them."
