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.

Track Name: Waste My Time in the City
I don’t wanna waste my time in the city
It’s all bad not looking pretty
I don’t wanna waste my time
I don’t wanna waste my time
Track Name: VHS & SEX
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

Good news!
Good news!
Track Name: For Dinner We Have Laser
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
Track Name: Selfishness
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
Track Name: Smoke the Ocean
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
Track Name: $2.24 Gas
Apples and peanuts
Get my Reese's
