Tornado Joe
Toh Kay Lyrics


This place is quicksand
Don't you ever come back
I guess you knew
What was good for you
You got out before you sank
This place is quicksand
You look after yourself
And you'll see soon
I'll get out too
Either there or somewhere else

This place is quicksand
Don't you ever come back
I guess you knew
What was good for you
You got out before you sank

Hey ho Tornado Joe
Rip through me again
I miss the mess in our old van
I miss your bag of pens
Hey ho Tornado Joe
I propose a toast
To you and me and rock and roll
We gotta blow out towards the coast

There's so much I don't know
About this far left coast
But my short time here for sure has shown
It ain't no Mecca
No paradise
The ocean's great
And the weather's nice
But isolation is everywhere
You can't escape it by coming here
Anxiety can hitch a ride on planes
Loneliness travels from state to state
All my stuff is in bags and crates
Can't es-cape my bag-gage brains
Oh

This place is quicksand
Don't you ever come back
I guess you knew
What was good for you
You got out before you sank
This place is quicksand
You look after yourself
And you'll see soon
I'll get out too
Either there or somewhere else

Hey ho Tornado Joe
Mm-mm-mm-mm-mm
Hey ho Tornado Joe
Mm-mm-mm-mm-mm

Ever listened to the original? I love what Kalnoky's done with this. He's taken an upbeat song, and turned it what can only be described as eerie. And the lyrics fit the eerieness of the song very well. Kalnoky continues to impress.

So because i am procrastinating right now I felt like doing the math, it would take you about 6.3 years (≈ 2.303,24 days, ≈ 55.277,77 hours, ≈3.316.666.66 minutes) to listen to this song 1 Million times. So you better start using multiple tabs and click bots :D
