Recorded through the Pabst Wax Project at Tower Bar in City Heights, SD, CA. Thanks to PBR for making it happen, Wes for recording us and Spencer for giving us the call and for all the beer.


You can try to clean around the wound
But if your fingers don’t touch blood, the scab’s going nowhere
You can try to tell the kids you’re cool but if they won’t listen then they won’t listen
And they’re not listening

There’s a bad man inside of me
And I can’t stop him when he wants out

You’re smart enough to call it fear, but are you brave enough to ask why
We’re so afraid of what happens when we all die?

So you can run in circles for the moon
But we both know the tide will never change
It’s not a fucking game

Those beans that you count, you know you can’t take them with you
I know that it’s not fair but I can’t care if I don’t want to
And I don’t want to

And since none of us are getting out of this alive
Maybe pennies shouldn’t be how we measure time
At least not mine
