Banana splits on a Saturday, I'm gonna clean my blues away The antenna is pointed to the west of the house to pick up all of her stereo sounds I listen to the radio through an amp It's a cover song by Transvision Vamp Tell that girl to shut it or you're gonna beat her up Holly Vincent beat you to the punch Pop, pop, pop goes weekend radio I'm half Swedish, so I'm half cute I'm partly French, so I'm partly rude You translate your words into Japanese Then back to English to see what it means I listen to the radio through an amp It's a cover song by Transvision Vamp Tell that girl to shut it or you're gonna beat her up Holly Vincent beat you to the punch Pop, pop, pop goes weekend radio I tape your show to impress my friends and challenge my record collection I still can't find those Rhino comps about DIY I got so far ahead because you're behind Pretend the old is new and the teens will bite I wish you'd come by on Sundays "After The Polkas", it always rains I listen to the radio through an amp It's a cover song by Transvision Vamp Tell that girl to shut it or you're gonna beat her up Holly Vincent beat you to the punch Pop, pop, pop goes weekend radio Pop, pop, pop goes weekend radio Pop, pop, pop goes weekend radio

When you open up your robe, I don't know how to respond I picked out the undergarmenst that you still have on Even though I know this can never be When you move out, you're not taking the antiques I try to entertain, but I guess it comes out wrong Sometimes what's in arms reach is what you needed all along Even though I thought that this could never be I'm about to blow a grand on the head of security I don't want to fight over the girl in front of me Fighting for love is like fucking for virginity Oh woe is I, oh poor pitiful me Fighting for love is like fucking for virginity You're tied to the stakes and they're pelting you with rocks And you seem to think that I am just trying to pick your locks Now I'm pretty sure that this can never be Because I'm the one begging for release I don't want to fight over the girl in front of me Fighting for love is like fucking for virginity Oh woe is I, oh poor pitiful me Fighting for love is like fucking for virginity I'm ashamed to call myself a man sometimes Especially with a woman like you If it were up to me... it's never up to me I don't want to fight over the girl in front of me Fighting for love is like fucking for virginity Oh woe is I, oh poor pitiful me Fighting for love is like fucking for virginity

Joe Henry's got a bone to pick with you And all the things he says are absolute He wants to help my soul get saved I'm happy with minimum wage Joe Henry's got a bone to pick with you Joe Henry stole my walkman from my bag I asked him directly, now his jaw just wags He gave his life up to the lord Thinks you should do the same with yours Joe Henry stole my walkman from my bag I believe we'd all be better off coming to our own conclusions Well, some pople won't shut up Others don't know what it means to practice what you preach So Joe Henry just got punched in his face I could not control my inner rage He just lived to proselytize So I gave him a black eye Joe Henry just got punched in his face I believe we'd all be better off coming to our own conclusions Well, some pople won't shut up Others don't know what it means to practice what you preach So Joe Henry just got stabbed in his chest I was just doing what I thought best His attempts to save me failed He is currently impaled Joe Henry just got stabbed in his chest

You can find it in most meats It's present in cans of beets It's in the urine of your pets And in your laundry detergent We need ammonia apparently because it's inside of you and me And we don't want to walk around in clothes that are not clean Ammonia is for everybody Ammonia is for everybody I'm not singin' 'bout zinc oxide although it's very nice If you think you can live without either, well, you'd better think twice Without ammonia you couldn't go outside You couldn't steal a car, you couldn't beat your wife We need ammonia apparently because it's inside of you and me And we don't want to walk around in clothes that are not clean Ammonia is for everybody Ammonia is for everybody

If the San Andreas fault opened up real wide And all of California were to fall right inside I would marry you one more time So on judgment day you'd still be mine If all of gravity just ceased to work And everything started to float upwards I would marry you once again Just to love you where the air was thin If your family decided to rebuke All of the sanctions they bestowed unto you I would marry you times two Just to be the other half of you If we end up in a nuclear row I will reiterate my vows And marry you in the middle of town As the bombs fell down

I was recording a demo by a scatterbrained girl with which I'd shared a stage She played the accorian and was about to move to New York And while I didn't find her that pretty and could barely tolerate her personality I have it on good authority; I could have had sex with that girl I never have sex for the conquest but she was stuck on auto-suggest And every time I'd roll the tape, she'd sit on the bed and say "wait" But you were in the other room and I'd just broken up with you But if I wanted to make a move, I could have had sex with that girl Though I doth protest too much, I could tell by the way she hugged But I just didn't like her as such; I could have had sex with that girl I never have sex for the conquest but she was stuck on auto-suggest And every time I'd roll the tape, she'd sit on the bed and say "wait" She left her number and her mic stand as an excuse that she could come back again But I only wanted her as a friend; I could have had sex with that girl I never have sex for the conquest but she was stuck on auto-suggest And every time I'd roll the tape, she'd sit on the bed and say "wait"

Everytime I swear them off and let my chemicals run wild At first I'm so much more fun and so much more clear eyed That's before I get the feeling things outside the bed are threats Before the episodes begin when I go off the meds Everybody liked me better, there were more people around I drank more tea than soda, there was no sugar allowed Did I fall in love with agoraphobia instead Of keeping my head up the time I went off the meds? I could fall asleep on Wednesday and wake up on Friday night But one day with their compounding labs, they will get it right They will find the recipe I thought I was getting saner, those around me disagreed I chalked the things that I did wrong up to immaturity I guess I looked healthier but kind of underfed I thought that I was better when I went off the meds I could fall asleep on Wednesday and wake up on Friday night But one day with their compounding labs, they will get it right They will find the recipe

The world is at my fingertips and frankly I don't care a bit I can waste a day away based on all the options I have weighed Obsessions leave me horrified and I am feeling quite confined Lethargy will have to work for me; (My schedule is always free) And all my winter colors will turn to orange and blue And I am gonna miss you and you and you and you and you This house could use a bit of work and with the talent of a soda jerk I can rearrange the living space and hide things in the pillowcase A toilet made of stainless steel, a felony with no appeals A lapse in judgment might just lead to a huge lapse in my life And all my winter colors will turn to orange and blue And I am gonna miss you and you and you and you and you Silence is golden Duct tape is silver If I should choose to go outside, there's earthly laws one must abide I've watched so many cop shows that now I know what not to do And all my winter colors will turn to orange and blue And I am gonna miss you and you and you and you and you

I saw you vomit when you left but I let you take the car I figured if you were that fucked up you wouldn't be getting far You said you had to go out and run an errand for your dad He doesn't want to buy his coke in person: he'll send his daughter instead So I'll lay here underneath your blacklight And I'll be thankful for your stereo Sometimes I can't wait to see you go If you loved me by now you'd be at home Did you find another man? I see you've got plenty of smokes At first I thought that you were kidding because you're terrible with jokes But you've been gone for hours and you left your methadone But I know you'll be back real soon: you wouldn't miss another dose So I'll lay here underneath your blacklight And I'll be thankful for your stereo Sometimes I can't wait to see you go If you loved me by now you'd be at home I saw you sneak back in wired for sound You said "go back to sleep" and you put on your nightgown So tomorrow I will tell you, tomorrow you will know Tomorrow I will fix everything, and tomorrow I'll go home For now I'll lay under your blacklight And I'll be thankful for your stereo Sometimes I can't wait to see you go If you loved me by now you'd be at home If you loved me by now...

Are you satisfied with your life? At some point it has to be good enough And it's only selling out if you get paid for actions you didn't like But I have got a secret; an antidote some might say You don't have to give in and you can leave the drama for another day You can just stop trying You can mentally check out You can just stop trying And let everything work out I propose this creed like a mission statement at a healthfood store I'm not talkin' aathy, but I'm finding it hard to worry anymore Since I just stopped trying Since I mentally checked out Now you can just stop trying And let everything work out (Three more drinks/three more depakotes A trazodone/a levothyroxcin) The movie industry has already done it's part A million "now generation" teens can turn their little cell phones off They have just stopped trying They have mentally cheked out You can just stop trying And let everything work out (Three more drinks/three more depakotes A trazodone/a levothyroxcin)

about

This is the first album that I’ve recorded 100% digitally. It’s very fair to argue that I haven’t got a fucking clue how to make ones and zeroes work in my favor. I’m more of a machine/magnetic strip kind of guy. Tangible stuff, you know? Time will tell if in sounds any good, because God knows my hearing is shot. I like the sounds a lot, myself.
