When I was a guide for the brickworks in Pawling There was a salad house open 24-7 Good morning Bad mornings meet for a Bad Mornings Anonymous You bring the dressing And I'll bring the nakedness There is a reason You can get a Caesar to go Drunker than Rome When Nero ran the show 666 Hello, Nero Three in the morning Winos need breadsticks A stoned retired teacher Craves the wildflower hangover fix Rotating lettuce in dark Boston skies Some skip the fennel Some want their mettle tested When I was a bouncer In Bellerose, just past Flossing A spate of dental town names That keep everyone guessing I would eat bees that were dead for three days Some people put their money Where their mouths are their graves And their mouths were their graves Nothing interesting to say Expertly mimic someone else's opinions And wait for the phony debate Debate Is it Is it a Debate Debate I would accept wages To eat half-dead things Like some bored old god Who thought He invented everything Sea lion burping Human adultery Indestructible knives That you could destroy if you Blink the right way If you blink the right way All your phony agency All your little dint whipped creeds Fifty from Dina One hundred from Sid "The prettiest," Medina said But its stinger already split I would take money To eat three-day-old dead bees I need a new ending

Oh She's a second-date fucker Yeah, she's a second-date fucker She's a second-date fucker She's a second-date fucker And I don't know what I am I don't know what I am But she's a second-date fucker She says she's a second-date fucker Speaks Polish, has cats But on the first date We're gonna go to the flea market And look at some junk And buy some stuff And then go to brunch "Brunch is amazing" She said brunch was amazing She's a second-date fucker Yeah, she's a second-date fucker She's a second-date fucker She's a second-date fucker And I don't know what I am I don't know what I am But she's a second-date fucker She says she's a second-date fucker Speaks Polish, has cats Speaks Polish, has cats I heard you, fucker Lessons in love I will always remember

Slow baby slow baby slow baby slow baby slow Half a wonder why you're saying "baby slow" Put a little knee ahead Ha ha, that's baby slow All the crowded images and pointless drone Struggle with an elbow You're so baby baby slow owed Slow baby slow baby slow baby slow baby slow Need I say it, chummy It's a sad no-no Crawling on your tummy That's all so baby slow Occupy their message with an infantile stroke Struggle with an elbow You're so baby baby slow owed Yes you are Slow baby slow baby slow baby slow baby slow Your ass is wrapped and stinking On the six o'clock show And your half-baked opinions never had a room at home You shoo away reflections On the ipecac throne And you're slow Baby slow Baby baby slow slow Slow baby slow baby slow baby slow baby slow

about

From the band that invented collaborating in isolation: Skyscape returns with three new tracks built around Dom's iPhone voice memo improvisations.
You will feel like you're in the room with the band... and yet, there never was such a room.
