VHS & SEX 06:16
Sarah’s chopping prices down at the Pathmark She puts those orange stickers on with care She keeps one eye it’s focused on the doorway Just in case he decides to appear ‘Cause it’s make-up sex and VHS in the country Make-up sex and VHS in the barn Break-up sex and VHS in the country VHS SNES in the yard ‘Cause we all know finding the right someone’s never easy And being cast aside is always hard We know that life is better as a pairing It takes two to shoot the moon Jurassic Park, Maker’s Mark, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape Aliens, Words with Friends, Indy and the Last Crusade Well we’re all just jigsaw pieces on the table Waiting to be placed or rearranged Sarah she refuses to be labeled She just knows her life would be better if they stayed ‘Cause it’s make-up sex and VHS in the country Make-up sex and VHS in the yard Break-up sex and VHS in the country VHS SNES in the yard Sing-along, Donkey Kong, Play It as It Lays Joan of Arc, Cutty Sark, Homeboys in Outer Space VHS and SEX VHS SNES VHS and SEX VHS SNES Good news! Good news!

No more lies No more lies No more lies Normalize Normalize Normalize Apologize Apologize Apologize No more lies No more lies No more lies You might be sexy in certain mags But I have looked through your purses and bags I have seen you naked too many times No more lies No more lies No more lies

Selfishness 03:23
Hey mama Get your hands off my dog food I need it more than you Hey mama Get your hands off my dog food I need it more than you I got the boomerang A motor cold a mile ahead A stranger waves I turn my head The pay is great I must admit Numbers change inside my head Why would I shine my light on him He isn’t me and I’m no friend He’ll be stuck in a pile of lead And I am here around the bend Hey Mama Hey Mama

Passed a man with no plans He wore a raincoat round his waist Building castles made of plastic and sand But I still don’t know my place Three mattresses stacked high above a wooden plank I wouldn’t lie It’s about that time to play some scrabble It’s about that time to play some scrabble I wish I could build an apple out of pieces broken Jenga sets But I know when I get home The newspaper will still be full of bullshit I built a pipe out of plastic and sand And tried to smoke the ocean But I couldn’t get it open I built a pipe out of plastic and sand And I tried to smoke the ocean But I could not get it open

Apples and peanuts Get my Reese's

about

The bulk of these recordings were made during an October weekend, in a farmhouse off route 10 just south of Summit, NY. “Smoke the Ocean” was written and recorded at Sgt. Pepper's on Fire Island, NY, and “$2.24 Gas” was created in a van on the way to get gas. “Waste My Time in the City” was built over time in an urban environment.
