about

"tomorrow you'll know i wasn't kidding
and you'll think i was crazy.
but, look, i figure it this way.
better to be king for a night
than schmuck for a lifetime."
— Rupert Pupkin, 1982

Track Name: Cabin Fever
traded stories like we're brothers
have we done anything with our lives
when we're speechless
when we're sorry
we're still hopeful we can travel time

cabin fever, cabin fever
jack is dull, jack is cold
earthworms, yeah, yeah they'll soon
take my heart, eat my soul

come morning, i'll be waiting
these songs, they won't sing themselves
i justify, i regularly lie
daily reminders of worn out hells

cabin fever, cabin fever
jack is dull, jack is cold
earthworms, yeah, yeah they'll soon
take my heart, eat my soul
Track Name: Yr No Punk
yr no punk, but that's all right with me

there is no manifesto in singing lullabies
you're not so special man, we're all afraid to die
there is no manifesto in counting down the days
oblivious reminders of old-fashioned ways

yr no punk, but that's all right with me

the ego is a bastard, a big red balloon
you blow it up and chase it, what else is there to lose
you spoke of good books, fables from old times
you put your faith in verses, i lost all mine

yr no punk, but that's all right with me
Track Name: Hotline
1-800-love-me-up
gimme a loner and i'll tell her what
it used to be, to be a man
and i'll bore her to tears, tears again
1-800-psychiatrist
gimme an ear and i'll give you a list
of reasons for a new blank time
whaddya care man, it's my dime

i called a hotline

555-5557
man, that voice is gonna take me to heaven
is it a woman, a man or disease
cuz i've got thoughts and shaky knees
555-5555-8
i heard that's the number to fetch a date
a good time, a 10, or a fashion play
anything will save me nowadays

i called a hotline

true love through the phone

i called a hotline
Track Name: Cavaliers
in a bar soaked night
i imagine heaven
in a pool of dreams
what a state i'm in
and i could've told them everything i knew
i should've told them till my face was blue
but i'm punch drunk and powerless
how about you

but this is what we wanted to be
all the young cavaliers

children of the revolution
they're waxing pine on the good ole days
rambling passages
they need help off the stage
it's the only reason they heard
it's the only reason they know
yeah no one's gonna love you
when you come back home

but this is what we wanted to be
all the young cavaliers

yeah it's the one question you keep staring at
yeah it's the one question you keep staring at
yeah who's gonna love you
when you come back
yeah who's gonna love you
who's gonna love you
Track Name: You're Immortal, Tell Your Cousin
crooked smiles along electric wires
they're flying down to eat your brain
another reminder of what i left behind
kitchen knives, they're growing, they're growing legs
they're climbing down to reach your veins
another reminder of what i left behind

it's only when i thought of you
the imagination paces
it's only when i heard your name
the feeling, i can't face it

poison laced, winged things
they're hiding behind your bedroom door
another cruel vision i cannot forget
the mirror finally telling you the truth
as your face melts to, melts to the floor
another cruel vision i cannot forget

it's only when i thought of you
the imagination paces
it's only when i heard your name
the feeling, i can't face it
it's only when you snuck up on me
did i realize your grip
it's only when i heard your name
did it put me into fits
Track Name: Not That Complicated
i hope i made an impression
with my radio voice and incessant questions
the one thing that made you laugh
then i took off my cape
this voice is deep enough to shake the canyons
make the gravel sift down to the monsters
but she's too stoned to fall in love
yeah she's too stoned to fall in love

i hope i made an impression
with my radio voice and obsessive guessing
it's the one thing i never saw
coming over the bridge
and i just wanna tell a former so and so
what it is i know

it's really not that complicated man
no, it's really nothing complicated

i hope i made an impression
with my radio voice and whatever you get it
the powers of youth are the voices in my head
but you can't return to what you don't deserve
and she's wishing i can
everything gets blurry from here
everything gets blurry

it's really not that complicated man
no, it's really nothing complicated
Track Name: Take Me With You
i gave you my hand but you stole my heart
i moved like a zombie when we were apart

i can't blame you for leaving the familiar blues
next time you go take me with you
take me with you

and what of the world what of etc.
you can leave but you can't leave my love

when the night comes down at least we were true
we won't be stuck with these lonesome fools
and you must leave these familiar blues
i don't ask much just take me with you
take me with you
Track Name: Stairway
take a bow love
you're in my head again
and the dreams can't come soon enough
i caught a glimpse of you
it stopped me in my tracks
you caught me staring
now i wanna go and change my name

it was blaring from the back of the hallway
playing some inane shit like stairway
we'll never get it back the time or the place
and i just rushed some words
a steady rhythm of nouns and verbs
whatever to keep you thinking of me tonight

i'll be who you want me to be
whoever's on your silver screen
a soldier, a saint, or anything in between
i left it for the judge and the jury
i carved it to a concrete block
anything to make it less blurry
anything to stop that asshole clock

it was blaring from the back of the hallway
playing some inane shit like stairway
we'll never get it back the time or the place
and i just rushed some words
a steady rhythm of nouns and verbs
whatever to keep you thinking of me tonight

whatever to keep you thinking of me tonight
Track Name: What They Gonna Do
and i've got habits i'm just like the rest
and i've got your name all over my chest
i've got secrets best kept underwater
and i wrote it all down for you
cuz the drinks went sour at the sight of our sheets
while we fell on the lies of modern lovers

and i fell in love
with the thought of you
someone i never knew
i never knew

what they gonna do to a man in a suit
what they gonna do to a man
who doesn't have a thing to lose
what they gonna do to a man in a suit
what they gonna do to a man
who doesn't have a thing
doesn't have a thing

why do i remember what i'm ashamed of
as if that's the things that dreams are made of
apologies and empty gestures
another regret over measures

and i fell in love
with the thought of you
someone i never knew
i never knew

what they gonna do to a man in a suit
what they gonna do to a man
who doesn't have a thing to lose
what they gonna do to a man in a suit
what they gonna do to a man
who doesn't have a thing
doesn't have a thing
