about

one time i went to see soccer mommy, the owens, school shoes and du vide at the er and the gig was lovely but i had a bad time

"when you pull up to the function next to yourself" -lea jaffe

lyrics

i had a dream that everyone who'd ever seen me naked
was out in the crowd, milling around, looking impatient
i couldn't think; i couldn't talk; i wanted to get wasted
but i couldn't drink enough to do the job on these ssris

it felt like a knife
so you know i'm going off the rails tonight

fears are what we see in dreams
i don't know how to surf the scene
i don't know nothing
full of nerves and wondering
if these skeletons with septum rings
have caught me bluffing
da da da da da da da da
da da da da da da da
da da da da
da da da da da da da da
da da da da da da da da da

most of the time i look at people and i just see humans
but i freak out a bit depending on how crowded the room is
and i remember we all have skeletons inside us
hell is a basement full of halloween costumes that go on for miles
wrapped up in skin and ironic slogan t-shirts and lopsided smiles

and mostly all white
so you know i'm going off the rails tonight

fears are what we see in dreams
i don't know how to surf the scene
i don't know nothing
full of nerves and wondering
if these skeletons with septum rings
have caught me bluffing
da da da da da da da da
da da da da da da da
da da da da
da da da da da da da da
da da da da da da da da da

bodies adjacent
sweating and vacant
dull and complacent
hell is a basement
so come on, get naked
and why not get wasted
drink up and face it
hell is a basement
