Smoke and Gas

from The Liquorsmith by Andrew Carl Thams

  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    The much anticipated coloring book is here. Art, Lyrics, Crayons, Music. What more could you ask for?

    **ATTENTION - Although the item is listed as "Record/Vinyl," it is not in fact a vinyl record. It is a coloring book (with a digital copy of the music included). The Bandcamp store isn't as hipster as we are and did not anticipate the future, so we had to improvise. Apologies for any confusion.

Recorded at Inhesion Studios, Lilburn, GA, featuring Jennifer Hickey on vocals. This song is one about travel, both on the road and otherwise. The outro specifically addresses frustration in love, kinda like an "I love you and sometimes I want to hurt you" approach.


A horseless carriage has no heart
but there's a man behind the wheel
Blood runs black, worth more than cash
Trapped within a cage that's made of steel

So let's move too fast
Let's watch the world go by outside the glass
We won't look back
For all we leave behind is smoke and gas

The driver puts his trust in maps
Where as I'm inclined to live by seats of pants
This engine burns until it dies
So buckle up love and brace for a wild ride

Because I move real fast
I watch the world go by outside the glass
And me, see I don't ever look back
For all I leave behind is smoke and gas

I love you like a lion
Wild are my intentions
I am a hunter, a stalker, and you are the prey
Take your chances and I assure you
That with flesh and blood I will know you
I will thoughtfully protect you with fire and rage
Darlin you are the difference between hate and love and resistance
I will treat you in the same way that I treat myself
(Not very nicely)
