about

The Science of Letting On Nashville, Tennessee

Kevin Clay’s 30 year artistic career is living proof that heartfelt well-crafted narratives are ageless and that there’s a fine line between falling behind and being ahead of your time. Kevin’s art of self-deprecation and redemption - “The Science of Letting On” - is a poetic and sonic amalgamation of Beat, Punk, Pop Art, Gonzo Journalism, Shoegaze and Grunge. ... more

Track Name: Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fond of the Idea of Staying Here and Never Going Back Home
Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fond of the Idea of Staying Here and Never Going Back Home

She smokes clove cigarettes
You sip and nurse your English tea
The kids glue their broken hearts
To the television

Choking on the tension
Silence is an awkward sound
She broke into your heart
And lost her inhibitions

It's harder to fall
When there's no one to catch you
And there's no one to pick you up

Time makes the heart grow fond of
The space between you and me and others
She's finding herself but losing the will to
See her way back

You drag yourself out of bed
Overhung with a cotton mouth
In an empty house without
your wife or your children

You go out for a run
To burn (off) your higher life
Log into your phone
Is anybody out there?

It's harder to try
When there's no one beside you
And there's no one to lead you on

Time makes the heart grow fond of
The space between you and me and others
She's finding herself but losing the will to
See her way back

Don't be an ass and crash her party
Don't be an ass and crash her party (Oh Oh, Oh Oh Oh)
Don't be an ass and crash her party (Oh)
Don't get in the way, you'll be sorry

Don't be an ass and crash her party
Don't be an ass and crash her party (Oh Oh, Oh Oh Oh)
Don't be an ass and crash her party (Oh)
Don't get in the way, you'll be sorry

Don't be an ass and crash her party
Don't be an ass and crash her party
Don't be an ass and crash her party

Track Name: Pressure
Pressure

It haunts you like a bad dream
Taunts you like a moth to the fire
It deflates your self-esteem
But elevates you higher and higher

There's something in the air
The word on the street (uh oh)
You almost had a nervous breakdown
But some say it's good for the soul

And you can't see the sun
Through the clouds and the rain
You're projecting on us
The source and summit of your pain

Hush - Baby just shut your mouth
If you can't take the pressure
Hush - Baby just shut your mouth
Go call your mother
I know you're just acting out
You're the prettier sister
Hush - Baby just shut your mouth
If you can’t take the pressure

It writes you like poetry
And fuels you like gasoline
It drowns you like alcohol
And hits us when you're coming and going

You wear it like a dress
Your hurt on your sleeve (uh oh)
It ages you like cigarettes
And veils you like a five o'clock shadow

And you can't see the sun
Through the clouds and the rain
You’re projecting on us
The source and summit of your pain

Hush - Baby just shut your mouth
If you can't take the pressure
Hush - Baby just shut your mouth
You're a mess like your mother
All you do is fuss and shout
You're the prettier sister
Hush - Baby just shut your mouth
If you can't take the pressure

Can't you see the path you're walking on
Suddenly you find yourself lost
Considering the time we spent
Trying hard to forget
Calculating arguments to rhyme

Hush - Baby just shut your mouth
If you can't take the pressure
Hush - Baby just shut your mouth
Go call your mother
I know you're just acting out
You're the prettier sister
Hush - Baby just shut your mouth
If you can't take the pressure

If you can't take the pressure
