Following on from our debut release ‘The Fool’, we give you our second single ‘Colombian Flu’. We like to think of it as an older, stronger, harder hitting big brother to our prior release. Enjoy.


Blow me a kiss, Find me a reason
‘Cause I’ve been smoking all your cigarettes
Laughing at the shit you say to me

Because nothing, nothing comes close to you
I’ve got a real bad case of Colombian flu

I saw my first real gun at the age of five
Met a real bad man at a downtown dive

He was looking kinda scary, eyes beneath his teeth
I got a real good view but she didn’t agree with me

My my my what a hell of a guy
I bet you didn’t know he waged a lot of your fights

I remember you, always on your own
I got a real good view from my balcony here in Rome

Just when you thought you would try n call

I don’t know what to do with my baby anymore
She’s got a black spider and some new voodoo on the wall

She’s got a black spider and some new voodoo on the wall
