The first preview from our upcoming EP.


Everybody’s sober nowadays.
Me, I’ll stick with whiskey and cabernet.
It’s the only thing that gets me through
Nights without thinking about you.

Everybody’s looking better than me.
Me, I got a problem with history.
When you spend your whole nights in reverse,
A steady hand and mind just makes things worse.

All I need’s a cushion for the fall.
You cannot miss what you cannot recall.

Don’t need anymore of your guilt trips.
The only cure I need is another sip
Of tonic, gin, and disillusionment.
I work my best at around sixty percent.

It’s no big deal; I can still hold a job,
Even though I hate the one I’ve got.

All I need’s a cushion for the fall.
You cannot miss what you cannot recall.
Everybody’s sober nowadays.
Me, I’d rather drown in chardonnay.

In the truest sense, they are at the leading edge of the next wave of the post-modern rock movement. ... more
