Premiere: Agent of Corruption

Casey Burge is a home-recording artist currently based in the Pacific Northwest. This is a fresh song, written for a new album-in-progress just a few days ago. I sincerely believe the best pop music right now is being recorded on his computer. By him.

Stream/Download: Casey Burge "Agent of Corruption"


If you want it at all, check out free downloads of the two-song Dangerous and his cassette release Triumph. Burge currently fronts Portland band Minden; they released their debut LP Exotic Cakes late last year. Pop in after the jump to get a read on the lyrics, as well.

Lyrics
Don't you even try to put me on the hot seat,
I won't deny it.  I want it all,
'cause I started out with nothin' in the Kingdom Hall parking lot,
waiting for my girl to come out. No question, no doubts.

Some people say that I'm an Agent of Corruption.
After your song and prayer, it's time for a lesson.

There are some things I've done that seemed like a good thing at the time.
Just having fun (yeah). Half way around the world and drinking juices,
with my brown-skinned hostess.

Some people say that I'm an Agent of Corruption.
After your song and prayer, it's time for a lesson.

My gift gets given when something is taken away.
(just wait, receive the gift with grace)
And there's always another device with which to play.
But if all I ever did was nod my head and agree,
would there be no corruption and would it set my conscience free?
(set my conscience free)

Even though they told you what they told you,
over my shoulder Jehova's married with kids.

Some people say that I'm an Agent of Corruption.
After your song and prayer, it's time for a lesson.
