about

This album contains about 6 years worth of grimy demos and sonic bullfuckery that I scraped from my phone, various portable recording devices, and several old laptops while on a quest for riffs and ideas for the next record.

Recorded on location: in my car rolling down I-35 between San Antonio and Austin, in my living room at 4 different consecutive houses, walking down the street, in the bathroom at random locations up and down the west coast... you get the picture.

BEWARE! If it is real music you seek, please saunter on over to one of the other albums by The Lovely Savages. Surely you'll find something that suits your fancy ears.

BUT! if you're feeling bold and yearn for a jangled journey through time and space, welcome!

Track Name: Everybody Come Downstairs
Everybody come down stairs
And everybody box your ears but
You never ever ever gotta make it so

Everybody come outside
When everybody went and died but
We all really had to make it so

You went on and had to make it so
In the snow you gotta go
and make it all yourself

Because if you ain't nobody else
Then no one gonna make you up yourself
Cause you're a elf
The twelfth
Track Name: Don't Do That (That's Dumb)
Don't do that
That's dumb
Don't do that
That's dumb
Don't do that
That's dumb motherfucker
Don't do that
That's dumb
Track Name: Happy Songs Are Hard - Crappy Version
OK trying to bust out a demo of a song called Happy Songs Are Hard
It's hard to write a happy song
Happiness makes running and living
Dark times
Makes brooding and writing
It pours on out
There's a lot of drama going on
And tragedy too
It's hard to describe feeling loved
And living in harmony
Feeling like that
Makes you want to laugh
Experience and connect
Dark times
Require a mind to dissect
So I can look close
At all the damage from the wreck
A lot of processing too
Happy requires participation
Makes you sleep so well
Dark times
Like spending the night
At the bottom of the well
It's hard
To write a happy song
It's hard
It's hard to write a happy song
Happiness makes running and living
Dark times
Makes brooding and writing
It pours on out
There's a lot of drama going on
And tragedy too
It's hard to describe feeling loved
And living in harmony
Feeling like that
Makes you want to laugh
Experience and connect
Dark times
Require a mind to dissect
So I can look close
At all the damage from the wreck
Takes a lot of processing too
Happy requires participation
Makes you sleep so well
Dark times
Like spending the night
At the bottom of the well
Ah fuck.
Track Name: Just Like That
Something something something like that.
Track Name: Making Shit Up
I been making shit up
And inventing all kinds a things
To make me see real real fine to you
Girl can't you see
I just gotta get you into me
And anything I can is what I'm gonna do
Track Name: My Nombre Is Not Known
Well I believe that nobody knows my Nombre
For my Nombre is known only to none other than me
For I cannot tell nobody what is my Nombre
For I feel they will always try to use it against me

For my name is not the same as my Nombre
Just like my friend is not the same as my enemy (no it wasn't)
That's why my name and my Nombre is for secret oh lord
And I will not tell it until my grave

For my Nombre is not known to many people
In fact as I've said before not a one
I would share it with you if I believed you my equal
But from where I sit you appear to be a dumb
Fuck
On the highway
With the way you are driving
You piece of fucking turd
Track Name: Nobody Love Jesus In The Morning
Well nobody loves Jesus in the morning
Yeah nobody loves Jesus in the morning
Nobody loves Jesus in the morning
And he's barely tolerable all the rest of the day yeah
Track Name: Scrotillicus Maximizer
Scrotillicus Maximizer
Beating down the whole damn chain

Whole damn chain
Whole damn chain
Beating down all our whole damn chain
Whole damn chain
Whole damn chain
Beating down our whole damn chain

Scrotillicus Maximizer
Beating down the whole damn chain
Track Name: Your Left Hand (Demo)
I'm gonna motherfucking shake your left hand
Send you on your way
I'm gonna do whatever I can to never ever see
The sight of your face
Gonna take you gently by your left hand
Point you another way
I'm gonna motherfucking shake your left hand
Send you on your way

And when we meet in the middle it'll all be shits and grins
Making babies and kidding hands
When all the while stuck in my foremind
It's occupied at the same time
When I reach out to shake your
Motherfucking left hand
Your mother fucking left hand
Track Name: Shangri La (Demo)
Would you join me down in Shangri La
The water is warm the pillows are soft
And when I meet you I must beseech you
To follow me out onto the rocks

When you meet me down in Shangri La
I swear there won't be any trouble
Our land is salted with those lazuli stones
And in the fall we burn the bones

Shangri La Shangri La la la
A better touch you never ever even feel it
Beneath the pillars of Shangri La
We carry the bones out into the fields

Would you carry me down to Shangri La
And burn my flesh down to the bone
And take these letters to my mama
If ever you go near my home

Shangri La Shangri La la la
A better touch you'll never ever even feel it
Beneath the pillars of Shangri La
We carry the bones out into the fields

When you join me down in Shangri La
The water's warm your pillow is soft
And when I meet you I will defeat you
And follow you out onto the rocks
Track Name: Where Did Ah Put Mah Switchblade Knahf
Well where did I put my switchblade knife
Gotta open some boxes for my wife
Take out her stuff think that goes to he printer
I don't think it's gonna work for printing out dinner
Track Name: Valley With No Exit (Demo)
Valley with no exit
Plantless no vine
Bombed up and stoned out
Bottles and bottles and bottles of time

Spiders they don't protect it
Lizard don't leave his skin
Valley with no exit
Only ways in

On the triple chop chop chop
It's a whistle and a stop
One's a missile and one's a mop top
One's a pistol and one's a pop

Slyly subtle
Sweetly shy
Cousin of the triple
Sister of the rye

Valley with no exit
Never did and never will
No way to intercept it
Impossible to bend it's will

Communists now they don't care for it
Bank won't lend a dime
Valley with no exit
All reason and no rhyme

Bodies shaking
Things in the making
Trouble is you're taking
My brains to Bacon

Slyly subtle
Sweetly shy
Cousin of the triple
Syster of the rye

I don't know which way to go
How'd the fuck I get here
Why's it gotta be like that
Well you know it's gonna be like that
Oh

Shiny buttons
Fine pressed seems
Little distorted
Basically clean

Spiders they don't protect it
Lizard don't leave his skin
Valley with no exit
Valley with no exit
Valley with no exit no exit no exit no
Track Name: Whiskey N Corn
Well she bought two bowls of whiskey
And two old bales of corn
She bought two bowls of whiskey
And a couple of bales of corn

We mashed down
And stomped around
Turned em upside down and around
And we made two more bowls of that Whiskey
And two more bales of corn

Bales of corn
Bales of corn
Let's go talk about the bales of corn
The bales of corn
They come in the morn
Before everybody going on to town
Better get to town with your bales of corn

Well the whiskey comes in a bowl and a cup
Lets talk about the bowl
Lets talk about the cup
Any time you need a little whiskey bud
Gotta get a bowl
And you gotta get a cup

Well you don't technically have to have a bowl or cup
You can tip it on up
You can tip it on up
Well you don't technically have to have a bowl or cup
You can tip it on up
You can tip it on up

Well bring it on the bowl of the whiskey
Bring it on the bale of the corn
Bring it on the bowl of the whiskey whiskey
Bring it on the bale of the corn corn corn

Whiskey and corn
Whiskey and corn
Nothing ever better was made when you're born

Whiskey and corn
Whiskey and corn
All you ever do is the whiskey and corn
That's all we ever do is the whiskey and corn

All we ever care about is whiskey and corn
Cuz nothing could be better
From the day your born

Track Name: Yarrington Road (Demo)
Well the first time I ever seen your face
Was out on Yarrington Road
Your eyes made me feel so displaced
Standing in Yarrington Road

Yarrington Road

Well I heard somebody holler
Stanging in Yarrington Road
You drove up and give me $5
And pulled me off of Yarrington Road

Yarrington Road

Well I'm the first to confess
My life is a total mess
But spend a little time sipping your wine
I feel like maybe this is my time

Well the last time I caught your visage
Was out on Yarrington Road
And now every time I miss you
I head out to Yarrington Road

Yarrington Road
