about

Released: 6/6/12
Approx Running Time: 42:45

recorded June 3-6 [yep, 4 days], 2012 at the den of iniquity, robstown, tx
except trk 12 rec'd jul. 15, b/c it is replacing a cover that can't be.

tracks 1-2, 4-11 written/rec'd jun 3
tracks 3 & 13 written/rec'd rec'd jun 5
tracks 14-17 rec'd jun 6. 15/16 lyrics/music written jun 6 12, 14/17 lyrics written in 2004.
track 12 written/rec'd jul 15
all songs recorded in real time to 2 tracks [guit/vocals simultaneously. ooh, talent] the only post-editing being pitch-shift for the intro noises to a few tracks. and obviously reverb and compression.
guitar used: Emperador acoustic [70s, korean, cheap]
pickup used: duncan performer [got it in like 02, cheap]
vocal mic used: an old, sufficiently abused Shure SM-57
ran those through my trusty beat-up barely-working roland vs-840 to go into some cheap soundcard, and into fruity loops for processing.

Track Name: So What
[lyrics revised after the fact lol..]
C Standard [C F A# D# G C]. key of Fm/D#

so what
you haven't resurrected
so what
i haven't yet perfected
to distract our facts
blind dueling hardly
take it as i prescribe
just as i prescribe
just as i ascribe the acclimation will proceed according to my predestination
and my need
aspect the affect i'm receiving
protract the innocence demeaning
i feel your eyes are glaring at me
always we fear what we cannot be
and out
wearing it out, my welcome
changing your mind, not welcome
that's not allowed in the game we play
i'm speaking loud but you can't hear a word that i say
look at me when i'm talking to you, you fucking queers
and i don't mean homos
i'm talking about the meaning which that means that you're fucking weird
it means that
and i so what to your appearance
yeah yeah
look at me i'm so funny
Track Name: Pink Packet
C Standard [C F A# D# G C] recording. can be played in any standard tuning. key of A.


throw a pink packet in there
throw a pink packet in there
put a pink packet in there and stir it around
put a pink packet in my tea
put some pink packets up my ass
put a pink packet in there and stir it around round round
give me what i want
give me what i want
give me what i want you fucking bitch
put a pink packet in the world,
put a pink packet in the system, in the govt.
'll make it taste better
it's saccharin but it makes me able to tolerate the taste
of the bullshit bullshit bullshit that i see and hear
and feel on a daily basis
give me what i want
give me what i want
give me what i want you fucking bitch
give me what i want
give me what i want
give me what i want you fucking bitch
and everything will be alright
Track Name: Criminal Justice
[lyrics revised after the fact again]
E Standard [E A D G B E], or C Standard [C F A# D# G C] w/ capo on 4th. key of E

if she calls tell her i'm not around
handing down the sentence for daylight
i'm stressed out, it's not important why
i thought about just leaving
idyllic acrylic
listen to the hammers click undeserving of blame
idyllic, it's making me sick
cower in the closet til the demons go away
i don't want to get involved in this bullshit
motives weapons and alibis
if it's not a problem i can solve i ignore it
or at least i try
thick brick walls enclosing a sleepy town
filling their prescription for prozac
peddle spades to dig up the holy land
supplicate the phallus for handouts
idyllic acrylic
listen to the mad maniacs pander for a surrogate fate
sight spectral light inhospitable
power to the people if they ever get a fucking clue
i don't wanna get involved in this bullshit
that's my modus operandi
now perhaps we can focus on the real culprit
and put the bullet right between its eyes
Track Name: I Am Satan
C Standard [C F A# D# G C]. key of Cm

scofflaws and cops protect me
your diligence maintains me
no chains or laws restrain me
i am not dead
retrace the maze of violence
and history's despondence
i'll meet you at the entrance
i am not dead
i hate you, i hate you, i hate you
i am satan
don't you dare try to get away
don't you dare tell me what to say
i don't care and i like it that way
fire, burn, destruction, death
hate, pain, sin and disrepute
look in my eyes
there's no disguise
i'm red and i'm small
i jump and i crawl
i steal and i lie
while you work and slave and pray and die
i am satan
Track Name: Borrowed Time
C Standard [C F A# D# G C]. key of A/Cm/C

a single cloud slowing down to rain over me
a single engine stalls, spirals down to crash in the sea
sprained ankle from running through a meadow
lovesick limbs break pulling out the petals
too old to want to live on borrowed time
to wallow and ache in a sidestep's wake
where your first mistake becomes tragic fate
ain't nothing you can take that's a given all the time
so take a nap and network yeah
for the sight of the place where they sing and fly
and we don't have to live on borrowed time
ooh, borrowed time, get in line
you think you feel just fine
i'm running out of this borrowed time
not even sure who i borrowed it from in the first place
Track Name: Name Tag
C Standard [C F A# D# G C]. key of Dm[rock]

i see you, what you doin there
i see you, what you doin there
your name tag displayed
it displays yo name
i wanna see you tonight, wanna lick you
i wanna see you tonight, i wanna dick you
i wanna see you tonight
i wanna stroke yo hair
i wanna see you tonight
hey baby don't you know i care
ooh, see that name tag
it's very obviously displayed for me to see
oh i see that name tag, i want to get it on
i see you, what you doin there
i see you, what you doin there
i see this name tag, i want you, to take it off
i don't want other people knowing your name
i dont' want other people playing this game that i play
i don't want these people i see all around me
that i don't know or understand what they're doing in this room with us
this room was meant for only us
this world was meant for only us
it's ok, i'm perfectly sane
i just want to take you away in a car, driving real far
i wanna see you tonight, wanna lick you
wanna dick you
wanna get in your way, get in your face
i wanna become a fixture in your life, pretty baby
i wanna get in control of certain things that i perceive to be
an obstruction to my plans
these things must be eliminated if i am to proceed
with my incompatibility
that's really secretly what i want
that's what my psychiatrist said anyhow
maybe she's right, i don't know
i don't know
i don't know
i don't know
Track Name: Fumble
C Standard [C F A# D# G C]. key of A#

don't play with your balls while you're supposed to be playing football
don't play with your balls while you're supposed to be playing football
keep one hand on the ball at all times
don't keep one hand on your balls at all times
i don't have any sympathy or any empathy
for anyone who dares to try to balance these two disparate activities that you do
take your hand off your nutsack for one goddamn second
you fucking freak
i really don't understand why you need to masturbate in front of the crowd
it's not allowed for you to do these things
allowed for you to be so strange
allowed for you to do these things to me, to us, to the fans
think about someone other than yourself
keep your hands on the ball, not your balls
you'll fumble the fucking ball
you will fumble the fucking ball
Track Name: Depression
C Standard [C F A# D# G C]. key of B

depression, my friends, it's a problem today
whether you're black or white, straight or gay
it makes you write songs and pump your schlong
when you know that no one is singing along
it's a technical term that you may have learned
it's defined, it's refined, it's confined, it's all mine
it's such an unending pain in the ass constantly
hoes and priests, crooks and police
we're dying to be misunderstood
doctors and patients, the driven and complacent
the predilection is nascent and it's simply no good
so suck suck suck my wood
buy me some clothes and drugs and food
give me a chance, don't judge me outright
take off your pants and fuck me tonight
oh, my love, i cast off the lies
when i turn out the lights and plant my face between your thighs
oh, my dear, the words i long to hear
when the meaning is clear, that you want me near
but the problem, you see, is i know it's not true
it's entirely impossible and it's making me blue
i'm depressed and i'm stressed and i'm caressing my breasts
and i'm beating my chest like mark wahlberg in that terrible movie
come on girl, do me, i need for you to screw me 100 times
i need you to give me 100 dimes
i need you to tell me some really good lies
like i'm a good person who cares and tries
and is deserving of something worthwhile
oh oh oh it's clinically proven and it's very very very disconcerting
Track Name: That Was Dumb

Track Name: Orca
orca
orca
try not to get yourself eaten by an orca
when you're swimming in the indian ocean
and you're brimming with something like a heartfelt emotion
beware the expressions you might give
when the feeling arrives that armageddon is nigh
that the world has run its course and its purpose not so clearly defined
don't tell me how to live
cause my life is still my own
and my choices can bring to bear a certain hell of their own
in the form of a proverbial beast whose logic swims faster to feast
on your head, you stupid prick
your time is up cause there's an
orca
orca
try not to get yourself eaten by an orca
you've got no chance to survive cause he's coming for you
no chance to survive yeah your life is through

and i'm rejoicing at the prospect of seeing
your blood strewn across the ocean
by an orca
try not to get yourself eaten, yeah
by an orca!
Track Name: Gigolo Hopeful
D Standard [D G C F A D] or C Standard [C F A# D# G C]. key of D

he's in the drugstore
and what the hell is he doing, i can't see his hands
i think he's shoplifting some fucking drugs

i'm really not surprised at this turn of events
don't you want everything that you can find
don't want to fuck me in the behind
he's in the
he's in the
he's in the alley and he's got money in his hand
he's in the back of my car
i don't really know but i think he's gonna take me real far
he's gonna make me a star
i know you, you see what i've got and you know that i've got this
talent inherent in my ability to
whine whine whine whine whine whine whine
i like to whine
i like to take these pills and stuff em down
guzzle lots of alcohol and hope that i drown
i see the purpose of life
and it's often very depressing and makes me want to die
oh no, oh no, oh yes

Track Name: Private Firm
D Standard [D G C F A D] or C Standard [C F A# D# G C] w/ capo on 2nd
key of C

i work for a private firm where our privates are always firm
we'll fuck our clients for no additional fee
you'll find our rates quite competitive
on my desk you'll find dates laced with seditives
we want to keep you calm so you can make informed decisions
about your legal options
your financial future depends upon it
my mouth and my cock will get you wet
you slam it down and recite the penal code
i promise you won't regret
you need an appointment, my secretary will set it
she'll also suck on your nips while i'm going to town
while i'm going down on you
it's just something i have to do
there's nothing wrong with mixing business and pleasure
as long as it's diligently recorded in my ledger
hump hump
Track Name: JFK
D Standard [D G C F A D]. key of Am

seeping into the public consciousness
an aquatic dysfunction making a hell of a mess
i pray to your sensibilities to make it stop stop stop
there's water and sweat pouring forth in gallons
from the trees and rocks and the eagle's talons
there's something that's just not right which is occurring
my cats don't like it, they have completely stopped purring
we're gonna drown if we don't find a way
to stop this insanity and make it go away
oh baby it's like noah's ark all over again
john f. kennedy's come back from the dead
jesus won't you put him where he belongs
i already tried but he's become much too strong
he's deflecting my directed-energy weapons
he's got a kitana and he wants to cut off my fucking dong
please don't let him succeed
heal the world and kill john f. kennedy once and for all
once and for all
kill jfk once and for all
Track Name: Well-Versed
D Standard, 1 to C [drop C] [C G C F A D]

well versed in the art of deception, under rehearsed in the art of conception
watch this get like zero views but ha, ha ha ha ha
so anyway like yeah, you are nothing, absolutely nothing at all
in should you be of service to a dancing banana that'll make you more knowledgeable about krog a clyde a snack a smurf ski jumpin' snack
de la rosa, FUENTAHOYA, i am the fucking god of your life
your life is meaningless therefore so am i, or am i?
perhaps this is all a cruel joke playing by me on yourself
because, you see there isn't a reason for me to life
to live my life, there's no reason at all, there's no reason to live or die
only what you want, do what you want, alright
america welcomes you now go home eat nails and die
diecast motorfuel-spitting gumball machines in the penthouse of your shame
welcome to the last day of your first second day thing minute krog
this end is a beginning the moment is the only "thing"
where you are is where you are, an astounding revelation
what you think is where you are, what you want is where you are
location, there is nothing but location
loversale i'm not on sale but you can have me on a day like tomorrow but you see that means never cause there isn't one
no no no yes yes yes back forward left right up down close far here there everything is everything love equals reality
do you understand what i mean, i don't know if you do
you probably just pass it off as some whimsical bullshit that brandon is saying cause he always is saying whimsical bullshit like that
remotely queued hobo hedgehog, multiple investment javelina circle jerk
act your age, distract your rage, you lack a gauge, your advice is not very SAGE
leave this heart as it be, lying in a box filled with misery
lying at the thought of losing sleep
and i'm dying over thoughts of marshmallow peeps
pullover crossover electric, dance whore dance while i chug antiseptic
goldmine is fine, it's a fine fucking design to unwind you
tell the time it's a crime, tell the time it's a time
tell the crime it's a mime, i wanna get with you is that ok
and i'm getting in line with your mind, time to erase it, get it now?
get it now? time to replace it, get it....how? time to displace it
timed to deface it, time to eliminate it, oh oh oh oh oh
dance whore dance, when i'm feeling down
dance whore dance, shake your body around
dance whore dance while you still have time
for soon you will be dead, oh my goodness, oh my
manufacture rivals, worshiping false idols
bow down to high dollar whores, bow down to high dollar whores
ad campaigns become commandments
open your eyes, see the light, god is all around, overhead underground
money is paper, time is infinite, i get uglier by the day
i've never had anything to say, all i want is to disappear
all i want is to hold you near
don't touch me
