On the Air

by Steve Leaf & The Ex Pats



Recorded in October 2015 at Gravity Studios in Chicago, 'On the Air' is the first single from the band's new EP, 'Come Clean'. 'Come Clean' is a five track follow up to 2015's 'Lightspeed'


I know I was, I was to blame
You'd make me come, I'd run away
Down alleys, through side streets
I'd shove you down, down on your knees

Sweat on your brim, it ran on down
It curled your lip, seen all around
The next day it'll go away
Oh but the night, the bitter taste

Now I'm too tired to explain
Where I was and why I've changed
We're on the air, this mic is on
How does it feel to be gone?
All I have are rooms filled with clocks
While the world stands in shock
If I could roll back time
I'd probably sit, watch it roll on by
