lyrics

I should like to know, how’s the weather
is the cloud machine still painting cars and swinging its sledge hammer?
I’ve begun to think, that I’ve survived this long
not by fate or winning genes nor blind luck of the draw

It appears I may be God. I need to test the waters, but I know I can walk

That being said worst things are judged of me
In my defense women in my life all carry the name Mary
I won't protest not while the food's still free
Though they've started asking for my blood like I was serving grenadine

It appears I may be God. I haven’t died yet and that feels like a lot

I outstretch my hand
and give unto them a small gift
Not of power, gold, or land
But I can bless the coffee
And I control the tv
I consider this my calling
To be hailed for my healing

I should like to know, who’s the weather
Is the cloud machine still calling cards and swinging my sledge hammer?

It appears I may be God. I need to test the waters, but I know I can walk

I outstretch my hand
and give unto them a small gift
Not of power, gold, or land
But I can bless the coffee
And I control the tv
I consider this my calling
To be hailed for my healing

Small Time Napoleon Louisville, Kentucky

Small Time Napoleon has been described as “a mad science blend of western swing, hot jazz, and folk” by Insider Louisville’s Kyle Ware. Their live shows are intimate and natural while remaining energetic. Their combination of swing-era influence with modern inclinations has driven them to a sound and style that is both new and old and wholly their own. ... more
