lyrics
“Blue Tongues, Red Fingers”
by Jules Laurita

The kids with blue Gatorade tongues,
the teenagers wrecking their lungs,
she doesn't mind if you’re sweaty and gross.
Yeah, she just wants to feel close.
Visions of colorful skies
dance behind those dark blue eyes.
Raised on a diet of Kraft mac and cheese,
I'm so sad I forgot how to scream.

Chorus:
Down on her sapphire knees
telling her secrets to the bees,
a weakness for broken teeth
taking the place of her dreams.

City lights act like the sun.
Everybody's playing with guns.
Altered streams of consciousness floating away,
but somehow you make it okay.
My heart is pounding out words.
Stuck on an action verb.
Trying to live in an American dream,
I'm so sad I forgot how to dream.

Chorus:
Down on her sapphire knees
telling her secrets to the bees,
a weakness for broken teeth
taking the place of her dreams.

I was just thinking out loud,
raised on a personal cloud.
If you ask me a question, I’ll tell you if I know.
Please I just wanna be alone.
The kids and their sticky red fingers,
the feeling of something still lingers.
