about

Sort of a fleshing out of songs that were festering in the back of my head for a few years. If I knew how to get these out sooner maybe things would've been easier. Started working on these just as the last EP was getting finalized.

released February 13, 2016

Special thanks to Alli and Mandy for contributing their voices. Apologies to Colleen, hopefully next EP will work out.

Track Name: A Clean Break
'a clean break'

kid you're breaking my heart
but i know the fault is mine
i'm a dumb drunk asshole
and i've been wasting all your time

i love you but being around you
makes me wanna die
oh yea well you've cost me
so many sleepless nights

she said she knows
what's good for me
so she just left
my vacant heart bleeding

ohhhh and right now
it hurts to breathe
cuuuuz right now
all i know is you and me

spent five long years
watching you get over me
by watching you
get under someone else

she said she knows
what's good for me
so she just left
my vacant heart bleeding

ohhhh and right now
it hurts to breathe
cuuuuz right now
all i know is you and me
Track Name: Blood Sick Dog
'blood-sick dog'

i see their lovely faces
and i can't help but stare
but i don't wanna know your story
because it never goes nowhere

i want their blood on my teeth
when their scent's in the air
and you don't wanna know the half
when i can't help but stare

------------------

i dont wanna live my life like a blood-sick dog
always pacing to the trace, trapped in a fog
always itchin at my skin and tearing at the seams
living like a killer in my sick, sick dreams

free as can be, and outta my mind
howling at nothing, dead drunk, half blind
what's in my baser nature will always find a way
keep me bound tight, keep me far away

------------------

so dont look my way
just walk on by
i can feel him stirring
just writhing inside

no dont tell me your story
cause i couldnt care
dont ask me what i'm thinking
when i can't help but stare
Track Name: Don't Dick Me Around
'dont dick me around'

everywhere i go
you're always on my mind
you're always playing with me
feel's like i'm doing time

dont dick me around
dont dick me around
no matter what you do
dont dick me around

you invite me around
yer hikin' up that skirt
with a laugh ya kick my ass
i'm half naked in the dirt

dont dick me around
dont dick me around
no matter what you do
dont dick me around

ya got me all dressed up
with nowhere to go
by the balls just waitin for your call
looks like i'm drinkin alone

dont dick me around
dont dick me around
i beggin please on my goddamn knees
dont dick me around

i dont wanna be on your hook no more
nevermind that long term line
i aint buying that anymore

dont dick me around
dont dick me around
no matter what you do
dont dick me around
Track Name: Dead Beat
'dead beat'

its been five long years with out light
i gotta put on my skin just to go outside
i plan each step and take my time
with my heart on my sleeve, i leave
and my guts trailing me, dont look at me

dead beat, dead beat
that's what they see
i was born a fuckin loser
guess i'll die that way

dead beat, dead beat
that's all i'll ever be
a monster in their eyes
i feel it every day

i watch them sneer through blank eyes
a thousand faces just out of sight
two fingers inside turn my vision white
with my hurt on my sleeve, i leave
and my guts trailing me, dont look at me

some hurts never cease
some cuts never heal

i'm tearing off my skin
just to ignore

all the awful shit
i think and feel
Track Name: Kill The Kool
'kill the kool'

know who you wanna be and
go where you wanna go
the choice is yours alone

wear what you wanna wear and
like what you wanna like and
fuck them if they can't take a god damn joke

life is lousy with the
living dead
worried more bout looking cool
than whats in their head

this town is lousy with
lou reed wannabe's
gainers and whores
still hooked on heroin chic

----------------------------------

and every one under the sun
is looking out for number one

----------------------------------

with every breed there is a norm
a fashion type, a uniform
change the venue, change the norm
there's still a pressure to conform

know who you wanna be and
go where you wanna go
fuck them if they can't take a god damn joke

kill the cool and
try to have some fun
try to remember
try to remember that

-----------------------------------

every one under the sun
is looking out for number one
Track Name: Waking Up Alone
'waking up alone'

sick of waking up alone
when i'm broke as bone
creditors
the only ones who call my phone

and i'm sorry but
my big hang up
is never knowing when
to shut the fuck up

we will meet again my friend
through the bitter end
its what i tell myself
to stay on the mend

and i'm so sorry cause
all this is and was
is killin me sure as
i'm killin your buzz

--------------------------------------

i never wanted to be such a disease
such a drag but i'm fighting it

---------------------------------------

wish i could put out my lights
til my world seems right
and my poisoned mind
won't keep me up all night

there's a ghost here in my bed
a horse beat way past dead
and not a goddamn soul
who cares what i said

----------------------------------------

i never wanted to be such a disease
such a drag but i'm fighting it
Track Name: Pictures Of You
'pictures of you'

pictures of you looking so free
wish i could see you in pictures with me
a quiet grace, a loving smile
i lie awake all the while

----------------------------------------

and now i know i lost my mind
these same four walls, yellow with time
a million conversations dead in my head
and i can't think of, the first thing i said

----------------------------------------

i tied my tongue struck dumb my mind
wishing we could share one minute's time
looking back through your timeline
i start to see myself right by your side

-----------------------------------------

and now i know i lost my mind
these same four walls, yellow with time
a million conversations dead in my head
and i can't think of, the first thing i said
Track Name: Stay The Night
'stay the night'

never been much for red light cheer
i got loneliness beyond my years
if i could stay the night, just stay the night
i wouldn't have to shiver til the morning light

so let's pass the cheer, back and forth
and wear dance steps deep in the floor
draped in pine, fed on red
not a shred of worry floating in my head

--------------------------------------------------------------

i've wasted so much of my life
waiting on one fucking sign
that there's more to life then feeling down
and chewing glass all over town

so hex to the wreck of a sick, sad life
i'm ready to start getting it right
let's celebrate while we're alive
let's act like we're both still alive

--------------------------------------------------------------

i promise not to stare too deep
or let my tongue get the best of me
i wanna hold on to this memory
just breathe, just breathe

in and out, back and forth
stay the night, stay the course
let it snow until the end of time
let's waltz on by til we're fuckin blind

----------------------------------------------------------

i've wasted so much of my life
waiting on one fucking sign
that there's more to life then feeling down
and chewing glass all over town

so hex to the wreck of a sick, sad life
i'm ready to start getting it right
let's celebrate while we're alive
let's act like we're both still alive

so hex to the wreck of a sick, sad life
i'm ready to start getting it right
let's celebrate while we're alive
let's act like we're both still alive

let's celebrate while we're alive
let's act like we're both still alive
let the world just walk on by
celebrate while we're alive
Track Name: Cold War
'cold war'

foreign wars, killin in the streets
that gets you hot, but you're cold around me
i ease on up, and try to touch
but you dont give a shit about me

lady by day, and a spy by night
you get your kicks when you push my buttons right
you bend the truth, reek of vermouth
and you don't give a shit about me

---------------------

i'm beginning to see
that i'm in too deep
i never learned to look
before i leap

i can't stand how you
got it planned
a cold war between
you and me

---------------------

you trade in secrets, and i pass em right back
i'm at a loss with those skills i lack
i deal it straight, leave it up to fate
but you don't give a shit about me

well facts are facts and its plain to see
i've been barking up the wrong damn tree
i may be broken and bitter to boot
but i gotta set my own self free

well that is that i'm done you see
i'm gonna fly right overseas
and go get killed on the BBC
but you still..won't give..a shit about me
Track Name: American Gothic
'american gothic'

sorry dear but it appears that
we should part our ways
its getting clearer the end is near and
we got nothing left to say
there's no love here, nothing to hold dear
but we got everything we want
i should've left, a thousand times
but i am weak and so i stay

---------------------------------------------------------

forced routine time after time
all love is deaf, dumb and blind
i blink and watch my life pass by

the bonds of love linger in lies
white picket dreams a heavy sigh
i think i get the joke this time

----------------------------------------------------------

dimly lit, our spirit quits
the final frame burned in the screen
repeat til truth i love you too
and we forget we ever dreamed
night burning blue and no sound from you as
the tv burns our shadows in
too bored to screw as we fade from view and
our home will rot when winter thaws

---------------------------------------------------------

growing bored in our routine
we're only happy when we cheat
aint that the american fuckin dream

never wanted to take a fuckin wife
two kids, a car, the perfect life
a long day's journey into night

forced routine time after time
all love is deaf, dumb and blind
i blink and watch my life pass by

the bonds of love linger in lies
white picket dreams a heavy sigh
i think i get the joke this time
