about

Written by Gary Heidt & band

lyrics

The best things are always created by accident—
this dropped into a boiling vat of that.
Horror stories of non-intention
(thirteen years of piano lessons)

I am paralyzed by my power of suggestion—
I held you in my arms at the edge of Ned's grave,
in the doorway of my empty childhood bedroom—
my Prince of Potato Chips,

this sentimental primogeniture
whereby you can have it all
my fragments, these ruins, etc.
my Prince of Potato Chips,

Just So stories about loss
and how you diluted it with
the fact of your newness.
It's not fair or accidental,

this sentimental primogeniture
whereby you can have it all
my fragments, these ruins, etc.
my Prince of Potato Chips,
my Prince of Potato Chips
