Lyrics
Jim goes to the train every day

To a job for the bills he must pay

Beef products Turkey parts and the like

That’s what Jim calls his life



Well he’s up or down

You can tell cause Jim wears a smile or a frown

Sometimes he looks in the mirror

He’s a different person in a different place

He’s even got a different face



Jim works 50 weeks to get off 2

He’s going to retire in 2022

I Was There!
Remember me? I was the pesky skinny kid who carried the schlitz out to the van after I roadied all the gear for ya.

Man, you guys were awesome! By the way, I still have a guitar pick from that show.

By the way, I am wearing my Splinter shirt - it has a dog on it and some other band, I forget the name....

It has a safety pin in it too.

What larks
Lovely rich and raw sound on that guitar and a very authentic live feel. Oh, I see Chris has already said that. It's true though. I love the casually distracted dynamics of the rhythm guitar as it can't quite decide whether it wants to catch up with the rest of the band or not.

Great stuff, I really enjoyed this. :)

Sounds live cause it is live -
this was recorded straight to Zoom H2 stereo in my basement with my laptop playing DOD loops through an amp that was sitting on the drum throne (only overdub is the end drum lick). The other two guys - LSD 25 and Stu are my mates that come around to play on Wednesday nights. I'll tell LSD about the casually distracted comment - he'll love it.

It is meant to be a compliment even if it doesn't sound like one. :)

Oh, that smell...
This great! I feel as if I am there... I can smell the stale beer and old sweat mingling with the piss smell emanating from the bathroom, or is that the stage...? Hope you're able to make your rent money...

LSD's old lady has this big loft her mother
left her when she ditched her dad and ran off to Ibiza with this coke dealer. As long as we get a load on and have money left over for breakfast it's a good night.

Strip your throat
Can you still speak after that song? I'd be writing everything on a little chalkboard hanging around my neck after singing something like that.
Nice work.

More Beer
...I vaguely remember this show... the floor was sideways through most of it, though. You guys were standing on the wall too. That was weird. Everything was sideways.

Wait a minute... I think I was lying on the floor. Ohhkaaaay.... that explains it. Some girl tripped over me and I said she had cool boots and she told me to f**k off.

What an awesome show. I don't know how I ended up in Hoboken the next morning smelling like duck, but... anyone seen my pants?
