First single from the RPM Challenge 2023 album Sycamore.


There is nothing original
About suffering for your sins
All limbs are vestigial
If you're out you're in

The hammer is blunt
And may be overkill
Words are just a grunt
A guttural spill

There is nothing new
Under the sun
Ecclesiastical few
Or less wonderful fun

I read a book once or twice
It laid down the law
The pictures were nice
But the story was flawed

There is something rotten
In the air tonight
There is something rotten
In the air tonight
There is something rotten
In the air tonight
Something rotten
In the air

There is something rotten
In the air tonight
It tastes like ill begotten
Kisses, but not quite

It feels like sinning
Without any guilt
I could be winning
If I didn't always wilt

The screw is loose
And the driver is cracked
I cooked your goose
For an evening snack

I could be powerful
If I didn't even care
I just go sour though
So buyer beware
