Notorious Rainproof Smile
3 years after the release of his full-length debut CD, "Blue Alibi", Hank Kim returns with his new 2008 release "Notorious Rainproof Smile." Revel in another guilty pleasure. Is the final curtain really calling? Maybe I should stick around and start a brawl...I'm just a Johnny Walker jerk...... We're the planet's oldest cliché. We're a one-trick pony in this fairytale......Are you handsome in your wasted life? The two-bit eloquence of your little white lies. Happy Landings, Look out for that tree.........We're too far. Sketching scars in this tourist bar. Split the difference between faith and lust. You didn't leave a distinguishing mark......I'm a sentimental bore I know. Amnesia is a wonderful thing. We're the punchline to the joke that never ends......Honor yourself with your bad intentions. Write a threadbare myth of easy, western confusion...... I am sincere. Are you sincere?.........The scent of trouble, It weighs a ton or two. A hundred dollar blow job and a kiss.......They're like you, they play to win. Let's just blame the entire mess on Valerie Plame. All my pencils, they're bladed sharp......Who do I bribe here for another chance? Tell me what you're looking for in this stilted parade of whores. The suburbs are a lonely place. In the alley manufacture bliss......She was in handcuffs yesterday. She still looked happy in her Sunday best.......Defying gravity with a roulette gun on my left knee. Ten feet tall.......Invite me now to fall apart. Then tell the whole wide world to watch. Never liked the circus, got sick in Rome. I can't resist your notorious rainproof smile. She bound and gagged me with no place to park......In the dead of night, do you think of me? Your face haunts me to this day. I'm not too good to be true. C'mon home.
