Debut single off of Familiar Techniques - available 8/24


I met the crew when I was green
I left it but it never left me
the truly hungry stomach can tell a missed opportunity

and now I am a vessel
i am the thing you can't get away from
an image in a puddle split by rain but hey
it still kinda looks like you
no matter what you do

i wavered when i hit the first part
a reputation torn in two
in the corners of a greenpoint bar i stayed
but didn't want to smoke with you

and now it's all sticky and mean and love sucks
and fools all we
maybe i should have stayed asleep
and let the devil make his mess all over me
so that he could see:
no logo
no flag
nothing to defend

i know it must be rough for you me
gathering men under cover of night
to me it's the end of the world,
still the ladies hit the panic light

and then poof! everything was dead
but everything has come back to die again
i'm never short of help at the tombs
but we need more room
so bring in the wrecking crew
to do what they do

Picture Pixies and Steely Dan rumbling in a Burger King parking lot. Brass and drone braying from mono speakers. Big choruses, swaying anthems, yelping lyricism, old kids on new drugs staring at stars in the puddles. ... more
