    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    **TENTH ANNIVERSARY OF "This World Is Scary As Fuck". ISSUED ON LIMITED VINYL FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME (yellow with 5 bonus tracks!)**

    Very proud to make this announcement. This album turns ten years old this year. To celebrate, we've pressed a limited amount of the album on this delicious looking yellow vinyl. This is the first time it's ever been on wax, and despite the contents being inherently lo-fi, the vinyl edition is likely the best this album will ever sound. Contains longtime faves that you all seem to like, such as "Stuck With Me", "Terror Song", "Til You Come Home To Me", "Music Geek" and more. Plus we've included FIVE otherwise unavailable bonus tracks from the original sessions: "Afternoon Delight", "Harrison Ford", "God Save The Queen (reprise)", "Makin' Bacon On The Beach" and one I can't type the name of in public.

    Includes unlimited streaming of This World Is Scary As F**k via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

lyrics

There was this kid that used to beat me up
A pudgy kid, his name was Chuck
Once he had some M&Ms
And I asked if we could share
Instead he pushed me off of my Big Wheel
I skinned my knee and he rode off
And then when I was walking home
A bee stung me on my head
I stopped playin' outside that week
Instead I listened to my Walkman incessantly
And that's the reason I'm a music geek
It never stole a Big Wheel from me

In sixth grade I always dreaded lunch
I could never find a place to sit and munch
There was this kid named Bo
Who once let me sit with him
One day he interrogated me
Found out I had a crush on Tara Weatherby
He told the entire school
When she found out she laughed at me
I stopped tryin' to make friends that week
Instead I listened to my Walkman incessantly
And that's the reason I'm a music geek
It never points and laughs at me

Who needs real friends
When you can obsess over bands?
Who needs human contact
When you can hear what people sing about it?

Now I'm in my mid-twenties
And everybody's got nice stuff but me
I still have social phobias
But I'm workin' to get past them
Maybe if I went out and booked a few more shows
And got a record deal and made some videos
On second thought, I think I'll stay inside
With my girl and sing song for her
Cause she's in love with me
She loves to download mp3s
And she's in love with a music geek
She likes me for me
