about

Recorded live in Sedalia, Colorado (March 2019)

OF IMPORTANCE: If ordering in Halifax or Fredericton, please select the 'local pick-up' option. Bandcamp will still charge you shipping, but you'll be manually refunded (when Kyle's back in the office)! If ordering elsewhere in the Maritimes, select the 'maritime shipping' option. Again, it will charge you a shipping fee, but it will be partially refunded via FMG. We love Bandcamp, but this is an unfortunate feature that we haven't figured out yet.

Track Name: Costanza (live from Sedalia)
Save it for dog
I brought the right amount of lightning for the bugs in the bog
I mean I'm chugging along
I'm sticking it out through the thick and the dark if you'll pardon the trickling thoughts

Well you do not know, babe
I love you so

You've got me all fucked up
I'm not letting it slide in the bed of the truck
If you're hiccuping drunk and you're getting it stuck
In the muck and the mire in the thick of the brush
As if it's not vicious and wicked enough
I'm sick and disinterested missing the bus

Well you do not know, babe
I love you so

But you've got me all fucked up
I'm all fucked up

Tip of my tongue
I mean a slip of my tongue
I mean they call me Sweet Thing even when I'm hiccuping blood
I mean I'm sick as they come
I mean I'm chucking up my stomach like it's bricks in the mud
Right by the snakes and the bugs

Well you do not know, babe
I love you so

But you've got me all fucked up
I'm all fucked up

I used to live for nothing
Kick up a fit for nothing
I used to take what I could get which isn't shit for nothing
Track Name: Hallway (live from Sedalia)
Not only don't I need it, I don't want it
Leave me be beside the fire, the brick, the carpet
Underneath the cement floor's hard as my heart is
I beg your pardon if I hardy-har the hardest

But I must have rolled at least a mile
Completely free of ease and style
But here's where it stopped
I steered for the rocks
It was worse than they feared
I was weird from the hop

So now I'm seething in the evening in the darkness
Every word you bark I hark and leave it markless
Never heard a word so fine it buttered parsnips
Put the cart behind the horse inside the harness

Back when everything was okey-dokey
You could have asked and I'd have known if I was joking
I'd yet to get what it was like to never know things
I'd yet to sweat so much at night I woke up soaking

But I must have rolled at least a mile
Completely free of ease and style
But here's where it stopped
I steered for the rocks
It was worse than they feared
I was weird from the hop

Every mile of road I go's got
Two miles of ditch, you know
Few couple nun hats that I'm
Itching to kick or throw
I'd like to kick them quick
Quicker than the liquor goes

Bet you wish that you were in the hallway right now
Breaking stuff
Don't ya?
Uh-huh

Instead of faking shaken up
You should pick a painting up
Off the wall
And change the shading up

Like you were Yaweh or Allah
All of the lawn was the wrong shade
Made like a snake and laid long-ways
Painted each blade through the long days
I couldn't quite get the greens right
I started painting by street light
Imagine the fright that would be mine
When I arrived at the tree line
And all of the trunks were the wrong hue
Glimpse at the pond was the wrong blue
Then it sunk in you were gone too
And I'd have to fix it without you

Bet you wish that you were in the hallway right now
Breaking stuff
Don't ya?
Uh-huh
Track Name: Way Down (live from Sedalia)
Alright then
I'll admit time to time it was frightening
Tip-toed a fine line to spite them
A wink of my eye and a sly grin
When they pipe in

Well aw shucks
Was I scraping or painting the walls up?
Was I making just bits or it all up?
These nitwits can witness it awestruck
But it's small stuff

Ok now
I hate to throw weight 'round the playground
But fake kind and kind make the same sound
Saying, 'good grief, great gracious I'm grave-bound'
On the way down

You can find me painting lines on down the interstate
Yellow as the sunshine, white as a winter's day
Quiet as a candle-lit roadside dinner date
Hubcap dinner plate, never seen a thinner steak

Mean Mr. Musta Heard About Me, puddin', need some proof?
Kicking up a fuss like it's dust just beneath my boot
Hit ya with a rusty piece of muffler in your two front tooths
Ou-waka do-waka I'ma gonna give it to you

I often get mixed up
Sit shiva in witch pots
But which ones are wisdom
And which thoughts are witch thoughts?
