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: Don't Tell Jude
Don't Tell Jude

Don't tell Jude
Do me somethin'
Don't tell Jude
If she knew
She would run to you
Don't tell Jude

'Cause sometimes I get a feelin'
That somehow it's from above
But who am I to be in love?
'Said who am I to be in love?

Love is cruel
Tell me somethin' new
Don't tell Jude
I’m a fool
To think that she could too
Don't tell Jude

'Cause sometimes I get a feelin'
That somehow it's from above
But who am I to be in love?
'Said who am I to be in love?
'Said who am I to be in love with you?

Don't tell Jude
Track Name: Super Sucker Salvation
Super Sucker Salvation

You're always sayin' that you're fillin' me
But what you're really doin' is killin' me
Birds of a feather they flock like lice
Buzzards on carcasses it feels so nice

Oh yeah, salvation

I shot your daughter then I shot your son
But you're the reason that I got the gun
What makes me sicker is you pulled the trigger
A super duper sucker salvation for her?

Salvation, it's killin' me
It costs you everything
Don't say it's free

I know when you're high you might
Like to kick a man while he's down
'Part the red sea just to leave me
And watch me drown

Salvation, it's killin' me
Track Name: Squeaky Clean
Squeaky Clean

Hey, it comes in white
I can see the light
Hey, it comes in black
I’m never goin' back
Hey, it comes in green
Like a mean machine
Hey, tell me what to do

I played the part for you
You tore my heart in two

Hey, it comes in blue
'Don't know what to do
Hey, it comes in red
I wish I was dead
Hey, it comes in grey
All you can do is pray
Hey, tell me what to say

I played the part for you
You tore my heart in two

I'm on the street again
'Can't find my feet again
By the time I'll be seen again
(You never know)
I’ll be squeaky clean again
Yeah
Track Name: Kiss & Tell
Kiss & Tell

She's got a dirty mind
I’ve got flies on the wall
They say they won't kiss & tell
They lie so well

She lived a double life
Without a single flaw
Covered with honey
Smothered in blood
While she was married
Buried in the mud

She's a lie

I don't know where I’m goin' to
But you don't know where I've been
She don't care what I’m goin' through
you don't know where I've been

She's got a guilty smile
I’ve got a hunch or two
I’ll never know her
Like the flies on the wall
Like a feather it gently fell
Like heather they kiss & tell

I don't know where I’m goin' to
But you don't know where I’ve been
She don't care what I’m goin' through
You don't know where I’ve been
Track Name: Copelandhagin
Copelandhagin

What do you do with what they say?
When you got no faith in which to pray?
It's like a circus freak side show
If you can't give in go with the flow

It's the tale waggin' the dog that's swingin'
They are just what they say
Castin' demons out of doorknobs while singin'

Copelandhagin – Copelandhagin

What do you do when you see the signs?
Sick heal the sick blind lead the blind?
What do you do when you need some cash?
When you need a lot and you need it fast?

It's the tale waggin' the dog that's swingin'
They are just what they say
Castin' demons out of doorknobs while singin'

Copelandhagin – Copelandhagin

Just a pinch between your cheek 'n gum

Faith in Jesus breeds money, sex and power all for me

What do you do with what they say?
When you got no faith in which to pray?
The hundred dollars I was supposed to use
For recording this record I used for shoes

Copelandhagin – Copelandhagin
Copelandhagin – Copelandhagin

Just a pinch between your cheek 'n gum
Track Name: Still Human
Still Human

I'm not standin' on holy ground
I'm still landin' from nowhere bound
I'm not fallin' for you anymore
I'm still crawlin' to you to the shore

Can't you see I'm still human
Though I try I find
I'm still human

I'm not silence or mere words on a page
In this art of violence I've been encaged

Can't you see I'm still human
Though I try I find
I'm still human

If you haven't noticed just give it time
If you even care please pray for me
If you haven't heard it I'll give you mine
I'll tell you the real story
That it was me

Can't you see I'm still human
Though I try I find
I'm still human
Though I see I'm blind
I'm still human
Track Name: Adam
Adam

Is it gone? Is it here?
Is it for me to love or me to fear?
Is it chasing me or am I chasing it?
Is it out of grasp or within my reach?

I'm never at a loss for humanness

I'll be the Devil if you be God

Is it ending or is it just beginning?
Am I out of time or out of touch?

I'm never at a loss for humanness

I'll be the Devil if you be God

You always set my soul on fire
Now it burns an endless flame
You always set my spirit higher
Now it lingers just the same – the same

I'll be the Devil if you be God
Track Name: Date Rape
Date Rape

James & Maggie, his mother said never questioned
Though he's 16 he's now confused
I'm just a date rape you loved to abuse

What you doin' Carrie dreamed about
Who you're usin' to make your schemes work out

Ron & Terry the pastors said 'don't really know you
A religious spirit they accused
I feel molested aborted and used

What you doin' Carrie dreamed about
Who you're usin' to make your schemes work out
What you're doin' to me
What you're doin' Carrie dreamed about

What you're doin' I know is justified like a date rape
“She pushed me to it, you know she wanted it too.”

What you doin' Carrie dreamed about
Who you're usin' to make your schemes work out
What you're doin' to me
What you're doin' Carrie dreamed about

Carrie dreamed about
Track Name: Spacey Stacey
Spacey Stacey

She knows what I'm thinking before I speak
She makes me out like a psycho stalking freak
She's got a gun – I know I got one
She's got a gun – I know I got one too

Stacey, is it true?
Spacey Stacey I love you

She knows what I'm feeling and what I'm not
I say I'm healing but she's says I'm stealing and caught
She thinks I'm crazy for thinking it's meant to be
Well, I picked her pocket and she paved the rocket for free

Stacey, is it true?
Spacey Stacey I love you

Another casualty – ooh, it's a mystery
I think I'm history – I think I'm Spacey Stacey free

Stacey, is it true?
“Spacey Stacey never loved you.”
Track Name: Shotdown
Shotdown

Today I got a little look at life
Drove by the mother of my ex-wife
She took my stuff and traded it for hash
She's so rich now she's smokin' cash

31 days and she became a Pigg
I heard he's related or knows Butch Vig
I know my time is comin' 'round soon
For now I drive a ford and she a BMW
I'm so shot down

I'm so shot down
And I know it's me
I'm so shot down
And I know it's me
I'm so shot down

Playin' guitar sittin' in my van
Don't have a real job I'm a pizza man
She don't have to work, she just sits home and plays
While clothes smell like cigarettes, beer and mayonnaise

I'm so shot down
And I know it's me
I'm so shot down
And i know it's me
I'm so shot down

You know I never get to see my son
Though I know someday I'll have another one
I hope I see him someday somehow
But he's so brainwashed and I – I'm so shot down

I'm so shot down
And I know it's me
I'm so shot down
And i know it's me
I'm so shot down

(Bang! Bang! Bang! Down)

I'm so shot down
Track Name: Seed
Seed

At your table I am fed within
Though I go days without food
But to your fables I am dead again
Though I know that they are true

Of all the flowers in your mother's eyes
I have only seed

In your presence there is fullness
Though I feel that there's a hole
'Cause in my spirit there is dissonance
And there is numbness in my soul

Of all the flowers in your brother's eyes
I have only seed

Who in my religion, who needs communion?
Who in my religion, who needs communion?
Well, I do – I do

Can it be enough now?
Can it be enough now?
'Cause I'm needin’ more
Or am I needin' more?
Am I needin' more?
Can it be enough now?

Who in my religion, who needs communion?
Well, I do – I do
I need more – I need more
I do
Track Name: Rose of Sharon
Rose of Sharon

I should be screamin' now
If I'm not lyin'
I should be cryin' now

How can I reach for heaven when I can't find the door?
I can't get my feet off the ground
You tell me that my womb is barren but give me no Rose of Sharon
I can't get my feet off the ground

If I'm not dreamin'
I should be screamin' now
If I'm not lyin'
I should be dyin' now

How can I reach for heaven when I can't find the door?
I can't get my feet off the ground
You tell me that my womb is barren but give me no Rose of Sharon
I can't get my feet off the ground

Ooh it sounds so nice but yet so untrue that I've forgiven you

How can I reach for heaven when I can't find the door?
I can't get my feet off the ground
You tell me that my womb is barren but give me no Rose of Sharon
I can't get my feet off the ground
Track Name: Watch Me Fall
Watch Me Fall

I didn't think it would die like it did
But I didn't think love could come again
Oh, it will linger but soon it will drown
Angel, trust me loose this devil bound

And you can watch me fall
But I will never crawl
You can watch me fall again

Someday somehow love will endure
These sins that tangle that strangle the cure
You can leave me but I'll only stay
You will need me when the friends that you made are gone

And I will watch you fall
But I will never crawl
I will watch you fall again
And again and again and again

You can watch me fall again
You can watch me fall again
Watch me fall – watch me
Watch me fall – watch me
Watch me fall – watch me fall again
Track Name: Come To Thee
Come to Thee

With emergency
With our hands held high
In humility
With our heads held low

We come to Thee
Come to Thee

In diversity
As we've now become
As a family
With our voices one

We come to Thee
Come to Thee
Come to Thee
Come to Thee

And we lay it all down
Things that held us bound
Our humanity
We lay it at your feet

Come to Thee
Come to Thee
Come to Thee
Come to Thee
