Riff: Latyrx – “Exclamation Point”

Sep 19, 2013

There’s a million crazy notions that’ll hit ya in the head at any given moment, slow it down/But that’s not possible, it’s impossible/Over used like an exclamation point/Lost all meaning like an exclamation point/Played out like an exclamation point

from Exclamation Point lyrics by Latyrx

Channeling their inner Vonnegut, but with exclamation points instead of semicolons, Latyrx hits the ground running with some thoughtful words of encouragement. The moral of the story is simple: curb your enthusiasm because greatness will only come when the time is right; [LISTEN].
