Coffeehouse 101
words and music by Scott Wilson

Must it be so hard
To bear your own iniquities
Or are they something
That are worth having

I could have studied Charlie Chaplin
Instead of Socrates
Do you prefer the taste of poison
In your coffee?

I guess it's just the way
That I look at the world
You gotta kill the clam
Just to get at the pearl

Is it really necessary
To meditate your emptiness
Guess I live slightly east of Eden

And when you say your prayers
I just have to ask myself
Exactly whose dreams
Are you feeding
With your sweet caress?

I guess it's just the way
That I look at the world
(Get yourself together now)
You gotta kill the boy
Just to get at the girl

This might be just cynicism
Or the way that I feel
Cheerful witticisms
As I witness the end of the world
But this is just another song
That I wrote
I didn't mean to rock your boat
But I did

I guess that's just the way
That I look at the world
(Solo)
I guess it's just the way
That I look at the world

Can you distill your pain
By drowning in your loneliness
In case you think
That you've got it that bad

Better find your selves
And count your many blessings
Or we might find ourselves
A passing fad
Get your self together now

I guess it's just the way
That I look at the world
(Fourth dimensionalities)
You gotta hit a clam
Just to get at the pearl
(Call it practicality)

I guess it's just the way
That I look at the world
(Innuendo and banalities)
Can you take a guess
Who didn't get the girl?
(That would be me)


Song Comments

Elder Statesmen of the Ruling 11
A great local boy here in San Diego. Coffeehouse 101 is the lead track from Scott's fantastic album, "Kaleidoscope's End" which I recommend wholeheartedly. Scott's work walks a fine line fusing sardonic sensibilities, holistic yearning and catchy hooks into a sweet California roll of musical goodness. Appropriate for freeway driving, drinking alone or sharing a loud-ish moment with someone you love.
