Cassette out on State Champion Records

Very tight, medium weird rock and roll.
Decoration is all about incongruous combos that go together. Jeff (Casual, Glazer, Pinkus) and Billy (Stranger Cells, also Pinkus) are punk band vets. Jake is a bedroom shredder. They get into some straight ahead pop punk and then turn it around with an angular riff or a dance splat and that's just how it goes! Not an argument, not talking over each other, but total agreement on whatever.

Track Name: Mall Walkers
"Fight back" says the echo chamber in the shopping mall
but we know it makes no sense at all

I wanna know you and then outgrow you
but you're all around
You will learn in theory, but still come near me
until dollar signs come spewing onto you

"Fake news" says the echo chamber of the DC mall
but we know it makes no sense at all
Lay down, you're already sleeping
Lay down, you're already sleeping

I wanna know you, then overthrow you
but you're all around
I don't belong here, it's gotta be clear
that we're all around
Track Name: Pet
I can play and behave
But I'm wild
I will come and I'll stay
But I'm wild

I need attention
Or I'll do the bad thing
Let me in
Your feral companion

No fences, no leashes
I'm wild
A good boy?! A good boy?!
I'm wild

I don't know why I do what I do
But I make this place
feel like a home
Track Name: For Now
Take a look around
do you see my face in the crowd?
I know it's obvious
but I can't keep looking down

Take a look and see
I'm the same as I was before
May not be obvious
but it's the least I can afford

I'm back on top again
It's alright for now
Track Name: More Piles
I'm slipping out of phase
I know I've been here
floating out in space
all before I get outta bed

And I can't trust the stable things
if they're not stable anymore
Too much time will bring
the worst out in my head

Drifting in and out of consciousness
reflecting on the time I've spent
thinking about wasting it

Sifting through debris inside me
more piles of anxiety
cannot get away from it

I'm shifting out of place
I don't know if I've been here
feeling lost in space
all I want is out of my head

I can't name one stable thing
ask me if I'm really sure
"Name one stable thing"
I wish I could get out of bed (that's what I meant)
Track Name: Just Fine
Everyone's alone inside their happy prison
I only feel at home in my own empty kitchen

I know it's hard to understand
I know I'll be just fine
It's not hard to understand

You don't know how I feel
Track Name: Born to Bruise
Don't tell me what I want
Don't tell me what I need
It's gonna be exactly what I think
my life is an ice rink, we slip and slide

Everyone goes out
Everyone falls down just like a tree
Spread out our branches, our leaves do the dances
what a routine

Our roots go deep down
Spread out through the underground
and it makes this awesome sound

We're obtuse
Rough and smooth
Low-end groove
Born to bruise
