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: I’d Like to Think You're a Good Person but I Don’t
I’d Like to Think You're a Good Person but I Don’t

Tell me all your secrets and lies
I'll give you a little piece of my own soul
You were never one to complain

So take this with a grain of sorrow

You exorcise your lovers and demons
Drink yourself to sleep like you did in my arms
As you wake up in a stranger's bed

Take this with a grain of sorrow
Chase it with a shot of pain

It's suicide to even try
I'm drowning in your shadow
It's good to finally realize
You're as plastic as you're shallow

Shallow

Religion was your fetish and drug
Pills and cigarettes were your Holy Ghost
Your addictions are rhetorical

Take this with a grain of sorrow

You always used sex like a weapon
Feigning innocence like a push-up bra
Withholding was your best defense

I took it with a grain of sorrow
And chased it with a shot of pain

It's suicide to even try
I'm drowning in your shadow
It's good to finally realize
You're as plastic as you're shallow

It would take a miracle
To fall for you again

It's suicide to even try
I'm drowning in your shadow
It's good to finally realize
You're as plastic as you're shallow

It's suicide to even try
I'm drowning in your shadow
It's good to finally realize
You're as plastic as you're shallow

You're as plastic as you're shallow
You're as plastic as you're shallow

Track Name: Sad Songs Make Me Happy, Happy Songs Make Me Mad
Sad Songs Make Me Happy, Happy Songs Make Me Mad

If you don't care I won't even try
Since you don't want to be in love
You'll just laugh so I won't even cry
Since you don't want to

If you’d just speak I’ll believe the lie
That you still want to be in love
And if you won’t hold me then I just wanna die
Cause you don't want to

Tell me what I did wrong
Sell it with a sad song
How did we even get this far?
Just tell me what to do now
Tell me what to say
Cause I'm wasting my time waiting on a sign
Your silence speaks louder than words
Now our friends will never know

I can’t see nothing in your eyes
Cause you don't want to be in love
Just say it’s over - we know it’s done
I can’t do this anymore

Tell me what I did wrong
Sell it with a sad song
How did we even get this far?
Just tell me what to do now
Tell me what to say
Cause I'm wasting my time waiting on a sign
Your silence speaks louder than words
I'm wasting my life waiting on a wife
Her violence to me never shows
So our friends will never know

I know that she loves me [ooh]
If only when she shoves me [ooh - ooh]
I know that she loves me [ooh]
If only when she shoves me [ooh - ooh - ooh - ooh ooh ooh]

Tell me what I did wrong
Sell it with a sad song
How did we even get this far?
Just tell me what to do now
Tell me what to say

Tell me what I did wrong
Sell it with a sad song
How did we even get this far?
Just tell me what to do now
Tell me what to say
Cause I'm wasting my time waiting on a sign
Your silence speaks louder than words
I'm wasting my life waiting on a wife
Her violence to me never shows
So our friends will never know
