jakalope genuinely unclear how the shifts haven't exploded and taken over the PNW. Have to assume it's because they love Eugene too got-dang much. Favorite track: Cigarettes & Weed.

America ii 03:10
Please don’t go dear. I know you’re kind of unstable. Sitting in a grocery mart, trying to clean your stable you open up. This is the verse where i re-rehearse your silly lies. And I’d quit you, but you just quenched my thirst and looking back on time I could’ve done a little worse. You’re on my mind. I never sing, you’re always singing in the backseat. Now I don’t know you. And i tried just to quit it, but you were too keen and all the time you were on my mind. I had a dream last night that you died in a car crash - a big fiery one in the back of that abandoned Ray’s parking lot and i never knew you. Well I got so hung up on those god damn Pitchfork reviews, I forgot about the people, the people that could lose their jobs and their buildings. People climbing ceilings. Well I’m giving up, but you’re nothing, hey!

Bowie 04:05
Don’t hang around me cause I love you More than asking you is less than i could do So tell me what to do I never really see you in the springtime You don’t listen when you don’t have the time To hear what’s on my mind Because you know You’re more than three words You’re a dictionary From the 90s You know you’re like Bowie You do what you want until you die So please don’t take me for my answer it’s not the truth I see God I see Vishnu And for now we’ll pass our youth So don’t tell me darling Please don’t hate me when I say Don’t cover your face This isn’t the place And I love you, but you know that I just hate this fucking town To see me in malaise You won’t see me for days Harry Potter, Harry Potter all night, all tonight Hairy mothers, fuck your druthers all right, all tonight I never really see you see you when you don’t want to “Can’t you be more like that?” Well I could force it But you’re a force kid I never really scream when you’re just not here Like I could never ever Well I don’t know you So how could I own you? Because you know you’re more than three words You’re like forewords in my journal You know you’re like Bowie We’ll do what we want and until you die (die die) So please don’t give me all the answers to my youth I see God, I see Vishnu And for now we’ll pass on you So don’t tell me darling Please don’t hate me when I say Don’t cover your face This isn’t the place And I love you, but you know that I just hate this fucking town To see me in malaise HEY THAT RHYMES WITH MAYONNAISE!!!

When you were young your brother sucked your thumb You didn’t know then that he was the lucky one Now at night when they talk to you They couldn’t see past, but he could see right through I will never let you go If you’d only see me you would know When I was 9 this was great Grayed out the rest and we were all the same And at the top of the world you were my inspiration Now at the bottom you are rued by nations Parents tried to talk with you But they couldn’t see it through For a while you were gone and I’m drunk And this one is for families I will never let you go If you’d only see me you would know When I was 9 this was great Grayed out the past and we were all the same And at the top of the world you were my inspiration Now at the bottom you are rued by nations Parents tried to talk with you But the dirt’s in the pew For a while you spoke of your inclinations Of how you’re tired and you just hate this nation Now I just don’t talk with you And how could you For a while you were gone and I’m drunk But this one is for families

It smells like cigarettes and weed. I knew I loved you when I met you, but I couldn’t do a damn thing. I want to see the world, I want to see the sea. Well you can't be yourself if you never change You’re just dumb and young, but that’s too cliche It smelled like something else to me. Drunk in love, pissed and kissing at 16 I want to see the world, but I’ll never be Drunk and cold sulking in the rain If I stay inside licking windowpanes. Now I’m feeling guilty in my dreams When I’m stoned at dinner and I can’t breathe And I said “Lisa you took me and fed me a lie August took me from you and July” (I never really got still.) You never had the time to flee And no one really ever loves you when you’re 15 I want to see the world, I want the world to see All my songs dripping with disdain. I’ll just sit in bed and it’ll never change. Now I’m feeling guilty in my dreams When I’m stoned at dinner and I can’t breathe And I said “Lisa you took me and fed me a lie August took me from you and July” Now I’m feeling guilty in my dreams When I’m stoned at dinner and I can’t breathe And I said “Lisa you took me and fed me a lie August took me from you and July” (I never really got still.)

Do you even want to go home when you’re off work? Clock in, clocking out. But it never works. Do you even want to stay up until a quarter past 5? Or is that just your body telling you that you don’t want to be alive? Oh oh oh oh oh I’ll never even try And now you’re on the fringe and you never work. You just got bad grades and your mom’s hurt. Never want to stay up until a quarter past 9. And now your band is saying “Listen babe, you’ve got luck on your side” Oh oh oh oh oh I’ll never even try
