Made of Days 03:49
it's a long way to have to go to complete a thought we'll mull it over until the edges are round but it seems our only hope it's beautiful but it will gouge your eyes out before the morning haze burns away there are some things at a price so high you can never get as much as you pay time were throwing it away it's a little secret that the years are made of days it's never what it seems to be you only see what you want to see coffee shops and record stores sidewalk cafés and herbal healing superficial is the only word that comes into my mind it's never what it seems to be just take a step back and you will see this sudden clarity brings hope of things that will someday be this town is made of two-sided tape well it is a stretch i know running away won't change anything this town is a two-edged blade
The Grind 02:38
walked down an empty aisle try not to run I don’t know, I just need a moment alone adventures at the grocery store taking every precaution the natives gazing shiftily intentions impossible to gauge distract them with magazines and fifty gallon sunny ds I just made it out alive super bowl parties organizing just outside the hungry eyes upon me it’s just another fifty feet don’t fumble the car keys so much animosity
Rain Thing 03:43
so many things from day to day await the time you make but weather dictates it's game day awaiting rain delays now it's coming down to wash the wasted day so we're counting down the hours 'til monday morning so many things accumulate just pack them all away save them for a sunny day it's not funny it's trying to break me now it's coming out to wash away the gray watch it coming now to warm up the last moments of daylight
Self Titled 04:13
now it’s a long shot you know, it’s nothing special we’re going out on a limb I know it’s big talk and I’m backing it up with more talk send your votes in so I’ll line them up side by side and obfuscate where I need to so you’ll never recognize the things we’re trying to get over this is a short one so just get to the point the harmony makes it sound right so I’ll line them up side by side and round it off where I need to hope you never pick up on the subliminal that’s right we’re all down that’s right it’s not what you think I’ve got my own ideas just trying to keep this interesting so I lined them up side by side to see where the melody would take me when I thought this up and threw the gauntlet down successfully killed me an evening
for a moment there it seemed I’d found a hole that fit my head so well what waits for me back home asleep as we’re laying on the floor not talking now, music’s too loud and my conscience bangs on the door it’s time to leave and it’s hard for me but I knew it all along I’m not meant for this a brief dalliance if that’s what you’d call it looking back on that I felt alive I felt revived and there’s always that time that was mine and was mine alone that can’t be bad and at last glad to see it was just a miscommunication sentimental knee jerk reflex self-reflection I called it right away
Chaos 04:02
I’m only going to say this once its not a phase, there’s really no other way to make it through each day without at least disemboweling someone just keep it locked away they don’t make a bigger cage? don’t stand too close or it will tear off your face come one, come all, queue up to see the amazing one-headed freak what made it this way maybe radioactive waste maybe drank pure rage or the whore of Maybelline don’t you get lonesome? who validates your existence? now we’ve found our way right back to the start of the conversation I’m only going to say it once again it’s the only way to make it through the day without disemboweling you
Checkinout 03:19
another year or two has made its way past the goal tender and scored you feel the same but know it all has changed while you were looking away send the call out to all your clever thoughts achievements great and small find your place there was a time when you held your fate like a ladle full of possibilities but crimson cynicism is the brew you made between the weather and cigarettes it’s the face of a stranger, older version of you looking back at you when you’re soul searching in the bathroom mirror don’t spend too much time checking it out you’re checking out you’re breaking up cracking up it’s just your face getting in your face don’t close your eyes don’t pretend to sleep


Our second collection of internet-based collaborative oddities. We're more comfortable with the process of being an internet band, and hopefully it shows. We're very proud of this and hope everyone enjoys it.

If there's a song you don't like, just wait, the next one is probably different.

Physical CD is OUT OF PRINT, so if you have one, it's a collector's item and extremely valuable probably on the imaginary black market for such things.
