about

I've had a lot of these tracks on my computer for a very long time, collecting dust as I decided what to do with them. First there was an EP, and then, years later, I decided to just release these as an LP. They are the best tracks of the ones I have. Enjoy!

Track Name: Love/Glove
i knew a time
when there was no rhyme
only reason in this world
and i knew a place
where you'd never see a face
only arms and legs of girls

and i was the kind of boy
who never played around
with simple little toys
but i never knew a love
that fit me like a glove

no i never knew a love
that fit me like a glove
Track Name: Insomnia
i can't believe all the thoughts i am thinking
something about how my eyes are unblinking
crusted over with goo and starting to peel

maybe these damn infomercials will help me
try not to drink coca cola before sleep
maybe i'll buy some shit from ron popeil

insomnia! how i deplore ya
how i wish to get your form
out of my bed
insomnia! i can't control ya
(but i want you dead)

when i wake up it's already the evening
cannot remember the things i was dreaming
drool gone down my chin and soaking my pillow

wish i could fix my circadian rhythm
give me a break from my lethargy schism
instead i spend all night watching TV or willow

insomnia! how i deplore ya
how i wish to get your form
out of my bed
insomnia! i can't control ya
(but i want you dead)
Track Name: Fishes (Some of Them Glow)
i was the ant, and you were the bee
you were the one taking care of me
and we were a team, and we were a pair
even when i had all my hair

the fishes below, some of them glow
some of them stare, some of them know

when i was young, i thought you would care
i thought this contraption would make you care
i spent all my time, i spent all my money
i spent it all on making you care

the fishes below, some of them glow
some of them stare, some of them know

inst

i was the ant, you were the bee
you were the one with the melody
i had the voice and you had the bass
and i had the food on my face

the fishes below, some of them glow
some of them stare, some of them know
Track Name: Penny Dreadful
i got a penny for your thoughts baby
i got a penny for your thoughts
why did it take you so long to hate me
why didn't it happen from the start

everything we had was wrong!

i never thought you forgave me baby
i always saw it in your eyes
trust dissipated and no more maybes
no more hello's, only goodbyes

everything we had was wrong!

i got a penny for your thoughts baby
i got a penny for your thoughts, yeah!
Track Name: What a Life!
people always told me that i was so funny
but that never made me any spending money
i'd say a few jokes with waggling eyebrow
and down all the shots of whisky my head would allow

my mother, god bless her, she tries to invite me
to all of her bridge club parties; politely
i decline, tell i'm going out with some dudes
when really i'm in bed eating mouthfuls of reheated food

oh what a life!
i'm out on my own
but i don't feel
any more grown
what a life!
i sit in this chair
in my goddamn underwear

my girlfriend won't call me, says the phone disconnected
but i know she's texting that boy from schenectady
my job is so repetitive it makes me feel dizzy
and those guys outside keep playing fucking frizbee

oh what a life!
i'm out on my own
but i don't feel
any more grown
what a life!
i sit in this chair
in my goddamn underwear
Track Name: Peas
i tried to be quiet
and i tried to be sane
but every time i thought about you
electrodes shot right through my brain
a little kick of endorphins
a quiet whisper in my ear
a telegram from alaska
and a keg full of your favorite beer

then you were gone, you were gone
and i knew i'd done something wrong
you were gone, you were gone
but for how long?

and i know i saw you
at the grocery store last night
buying peas for your fucking boyfriend!
