Farewell 7" Sexual Healing b/w Shamans of Shame

Sexual Healing
What's this nosiness all about? Do you like what you see? Oh no, you'd never admit it, bursting with curiosity. It is about time to take it one step beyond the current state, to understand that all this is so much more than just laughing stock. It is about time to see that anything, yes anything, is fine and okay as long as it is safe, sane and consensual. So does it offend you? You can always look away. Does it leave a bad taste? Well, no one pays you to stay. So if you brag to your asshole friends what sick shit you've seen and how you detest these perverts - against nature's order and stuff - , I guess you dream beating them up with your dead nazi grandpa. All of our kisses, our hits and misses, are none of your business. And even all of our bruises, none of your business.

Shamans of Shame
When does all this talking down get boring and tiresome? Hours spent just pointing out what is wrong and what is right. This is wrong. It's not. Yes, it is right. This is right. It is. No, it is wrong. We're not in this all alone, though I sometimes wish I were. You got it figured out, got it jotted down, just got to know it all and judge it all. Listen up, I've had it with all these rules. Wagging fingers all along, won't it ever stop? So, listen up guys, this is not some kind of all-encompassing moral code of conduct. We're not in the army or in church for that matter. Speaking of matter, grey matter in this case: Make up your own mind, don't try to make up mine. We might share our thoughts, we might agree or disagree. We might still be friends - or maybe not. What is mine might not be yours, what is yours might not be mine.

Split 7" with The Falcon Five

Reclining Seats, Receding Hairlines
Light. There are some towers blinking. The smell of fresh cut grass. It all so nice and soothing - and so dead. I've been willing to put up with this for far too long. Can't take it anymore. Between reclining seats and receding hairlines, I'm gaining weight and losing ground. And now I'd rather lose my very footing, and now I'd rather stumble and fall down than lose myself again. This is my last goodbye. This is my last farewell, I hope.

Split 12" with The Falcon Five, Kids Explode and Petethepiratesquid

Kill the Lightning
Bumper stickers on your car about matters you’re keen on. Small crowns in blue black ink etched across your back. We were into something good. I could hear you breathe and your fridge hum but not the end creeping near. Like struck by lightning. Your cat was coy but when our paws touched it was magic. I can’t see a reason. We never talked. We just hugged.

Ride 'em all

12" EP Painkiller

Art School Dodger
So sip your tall flat white and keep talking. We got some streetcars derailed while you just wait.

Shy People
Pack away the flutes, can't hear them anymore. Springtime. Exit. Just ricochets. You didn't say hi last week. I didn't say hi last week. Ed thought we were too shy, just geeks. He worked with Kinski, did stuff for Schimanski. We were just stoked. Minus the man, minus the man. Turn of the tides. We were just stoked. Would you please sign my shirt?

White Eagle
Why won’t they ever say which animal it was? I wonder why won’t they just ever say which animal it was? Mufflers and tires – they tell us everything about them. About animals they won’t let you know a thing. It could’ve been a cat, a cow or a dog. It could’ve been a whale. Doesn’t it make a huge difference? Cat or cow, maybe dog or whale or some white eagle – doesn’t it make a huge difference? Crying on the shoulder of the road.

Night Swim
Crammed in a photo booth. Flash shone so bright. Tear the strip apart. Keepsake inches. On the street. Moon in the sky, pale and gray. Much more radiant, faces and smiles. Just climb that fence. Never seen barbed wire. Never got hurt. The water’s even warm. No one around. These Friday nights. Seen them on the screen. And it never rained. No, it never rained. Let’s feel something new, let’s feel something real. Just not so picture perfect. Let’s get hurt. Let’s get wet. These Friday nights. Seen them one the screen. But they never existed. No, they never existed.

Glory Days
Waiting for gratification, all you get is new frustration you did not know before you grew old. Longing for some inspiration, where is all that satisfaction someone told you you are bound to find? Laugh and talk about things gone by. About a time you call the glory days. You’re pathetic, just like Mellencamp. All abating, all smiles. Your life’s now, not in the 90’s. Hooked up to an assembly line nine to five. And five to nine is all that’s still left from you. Stop holding on, start moving on. Remember this route we talked about? I know, it got you right off of it. But what? And why? You can’t just keep keeping on.

Split 12" with Kids Explode

Heels and Cleats
Just some days ago I was wondering how you could build this fence in your relationsship. It seemed like a conveyor belt with packages in blue and pink. Like everyone knows what to do and everyone also knows what to say. Knew the parts, at least I guessed. Who wrote script, who sealed this deal? She’s got her heels, he’s got his cleats. Different from what you two have been before, so different and I ask myself what for.

Tucker and Brownstein, still MacFarlane, back then, what they said. Back in ninety-six, got it jotted down. Simple, neat and clean, but it’s still the same. Good things won’t stay, bad things won’t change. So what you said last week on the way back home seemed like some old tape from a long time ago. It won’t be allright, what you said. It won’t be okay, what you said.

Pony Express
I sometimes wish we were more than one trick ponys to each other. There should be more for us to say.

Don’t want this looks on my legs just because of the tights I cram them in. Yes, it’s a dress and I think it fits me fine. Vanilla fishtank. Just judging from your mien, the water is quite cold. Not much space to swim about. I’d rather be in fishnets than in this fishtank.

Gauze Bandages
Eight days in the hospital seemed like an eternity. And now I wish they had been, since all is said and done. Dreaming of a perfect life like in some cigarette ads, we can’t even remember those days together now. I’m all sweat, just every pore. Glad you’re not the first notch.

Scenic Route
All my friends are going bald, plans and back-ups, nice and clean. All my friends are getting old, settling down, some giving in. From disco to contemplation, headed for the oh-so-famous crash. I know we can’t pull the final stunt, but why not take a scenic route to the landing site where we’ll crash down?

Split 5" with Petethepiratesquid

Hot Topic
Hot topic on glossy paper. Hot topic on a flip chart in a flashy building with a parking guard. And everyone tells you that you are an idiot. So freeze and give in to gaudiness. Hands up. Thumbs up. Give up. Give in. Give up on your hopes, just enjoy.

Where fear and waffles meet
IHOP, pancakes, hash browns and fries. Go back to the place where fear and waffles meet. I wish I could, but now there is more than your knapsack between us. Things unsaid forever. Geniality turned to hostility. From then on, there were closed doors on our hallway. That was a close call. Now this is distance more than miles can measure. I wish I could have stayed, but I was anxious. And so were you.

7" Single '02 Jailbreak

Don't ask me things like that, what I am. Some call it was of life, what I say. What is your identity, what you are. Walt Whitman, Robert Frost, what I do. I won't just waste my time - yes, you will. I don't know, is this my life? Yes, it is.

Just Jonas, Peter Shaw, Bob Andrews. Dignity, Quality, Pay TV, two-one-three, Poverty.

Duck down and cover, this cock ain't your friend. Duck, cover. Cock, friend. Words are free.

Jailbreak, Jailbreak, Jailbreak, Jailbreak. All in the name of liberty.

What is this wonderful substance called royal jelly? Royal jelly is a glandular secretion produced by the nurse bees to feed the larvae. Pharyngeal glands of bees produce this substance in the same way the mammary glands produce milk. The fact is of great biological interest. No other insects in the world are known to have evolved such a process. Royal jelly is fed to all bee larvae for the first three days after hatching from the egg. Beyond that point for all those destined to become drones this food is diluded with honey and pollen. The larvae which are destined to become queens are fed throughout the whole of the larval period on pure royal jelly. Royal jelly must be a substance of tremendous nourishing power. On this diet alone, the honey bee larva increases in weight 1500 times in five days. This is as if a seven and a half pound baby should increase in that time to five tons.
