about

The latest single from the final Golden Seals LP entitled Something Isn't Happening, due out October 12, 2019.

lyrics

Independence Day is here
but it’s in December, not in July this year

and there’s a fireworks display
but it’s not the good kind
so I should get away

I don’t want the kids to know
tell them it’s for work, and I have to go
with all my gear

And yeah, I’ll be there Christmas Eve
but as soon as dinner’s done...and dessert
I’ll leave

Because you’re colder than South Minnesota
and you’re farther away than the sun
how’d we get here coming where we were coming from?

Nobody told us when we were young
that when we got this old we’d still be dumb

I’ll pick up my vinyl soon
but as it is right now I just haven’t got the room

And if you need help with the tile
I could come by Thursday, and maybe stay awhile...

Because I’m colder than South Minnesota
and you’re farther away than the sun
how’d we get here coming where we were coming from?

I’m older than Handel's Messiah
and you’re hotter than heat from the sun
how’d we get here coming where we were coming from?
