about

A parallel universe song. You’re drawn to Mary at a party, but you become disillusioned and go home alone that night. From that point forward, two timelines exist. In the first timeline you’re regretfully sitting at home, while in the other you never left the party, you and Mary hit it off, and the rest of the dominoes fall in place. The neon horse imagery is drawn from the Charles Bukowski story “3 chickens”.

lyrics

Jesus Christ, I turn off the light,
there’s red horses shining through the night,
there’s college dudes running down the line,
but I’m not them, I’m not the running kind.

With a name like Mary, thought you’d be more fun.
Standing at the party, thought you were the one.
Now I’m split in two - half of me is with you,
and the other half went home.

In my dream, Red River of the North,
and Visigoths (they were bad with words),
but I’m not them, I’m not the fighting kind,
there’s red horses running through my mind.

With a name like Mary, thought you’d be more fun.
Driving to the drive-in, thought you were the one.
Now I’m split in two - half of me is with you,
and the other half went home.

Cause with a name like Mary, thought you’d be more fun.
Standing at the party, thought you were the one.
Now I’m split in two - half me is with you,
and the other half is here.
