credits

released 19 September 2013
Here are some necessary thank yous:

Thanks to A.J. for listening to these songs recently and reassuring me that they don't totally suck.

Thanks to Shannon for letting me play her drums on track 8 despite the fact that I don't have any clue how to play drums.

Thanks to Adam for listening to like a billion different versions of "I Just Wanna Pet Yr Dog."

Thanks to whoever made the artwork. To be completely honest, I'm unsure of its origin. It's currently sitting in the show space at Fay Street, and I'm pretty sure it was on the wall at The Hair Hole before that. I don't know who made it, but I like it a lot. All I did was take a picture of it and add some text with Photoshop. I can't claim any more credit than that. I hope whoever made it will be glad that it's an album cover. If for some reason you know who made it, let me know and I'll put that info here.

And finally, thanks to YOU for listening, downloading, sharing, reading this far down the page etc.

Track Name: You're Not D.I.Y.
you're not diy if you own a guitar
you're not diy if you tour in a car
you're not diy if you know who your parents are
you're not diy so i guess that means you're gonna go real far

you're not diy if you have a degree
you're not diy if you record digitally
you're not diy if you wear glasses to see
you're not diy so i guess that means it all comes easily

you're not diy if you have a facebook page
you're not diy if you have a roommate
you're not diy if you're standing on a stage
you're not diy so i guess that means you've got it made

you're not diy but i think that you turned out fine
i'm not diy but i think that i turned out fine
Track Name: The Infinity Song
if the universe is infinite
then that means there's a planet in some distant fucking galaxy
where i am the president
and i am good at my job
and everybody loves me
because i eliminated poverty
cured cancer and fed your family

if the universe is infinite
then that means there's a nebula
where i am a rock star
smashing flying v guitars
playing scorching metal songs
everybody sings along
and i melt their faces off
yeah i melt their faces clear off

if the universe is infinite
then that means there's a galaxy
where no one even speaks to me
even treats me decently
and that's a really sad thought
so maybe i ought to stop
this existence is the one i have
and thankfully it's not all that bad

cause the universe may be infinite
but i don't really give a shit
i don't wanna be those things anyway
Track Name: Accidental Folk Punk
i'm an accidental folk punk
traveling alone, driving in my car
i'm an accidental folk punk
never meant to be that guy with a guitar

cause i wanted a band, i wanted a van
i wanted to rock
but i'm alone in indiana
and i'm not melting any faces off

but i guess i'll keep on singing folk songs
and i won't complain, cause some folks sing along
but some nights i just wanna make a magnificent wall of sound
some nights i wanna drown everything out
Track Name: I Just Wanna Pet Yr Dog
i know you think we should go on a date
i disagree but i'll still say okay
i'm hoping maybe later we could go back to your place
but not for the reasons you might think

i just wanna pet your dog
i just wanna pet your dog
maybe i could even take him for a walk
i'm sorry if this is weird but i just wanna pet your dog

we're at the restaurant, it's going great
the food is good, we've cleared our plates
now we're at your house on the couch
but i forgot your name and you're telling me to get out

i just wanna pet your dog
i just wanna pet your dog
maybe i could even take him for a walk
i'm sorry if this is weird but i just wanna pet your dog

i just wanna pet your dog
i just wanna pet your dog
maybe i could even take him for a walk
i'm sorry if this is weird but i just wanna pet your dog
Track Name: Pretty Weird
i can't grow a beard
but i can vote and purchase beer
life is pretty weird like that
there's really no point in being sad
about anything at all
because it's out of your control
you don't have to talk
you don't have to say anything at all

cause i know that it gets hard
when the chemicals in your head
don't do what you tell them to
they do something else instead

and sometimes the only thing
that helps even a little
is lying in bed with a laptop
watching malcolm in the middle
and i'd start another band
but i'm already in three
i'm getting tired of demanding
that people listen to me

so i won't do that anymore
i'll just sit here on my couch
wondering when my neighbors
will complain that i sing too loud
Track Name: 1200 Miles
stop writing songs about this shitty fucking state
stop writing songs about this place that you hate
and start writing songs about what you're gonna change

you always say you're gonna leave this town
you always say you're gonna find a way out
but you're just playing video games on your couch

and i can understand
wanting something new
but you can make that here
if that's what you really wanna do

but if you really want to leave
well i can't stop you
even if i tried, it would be no use
but you shouldn't complain
if you've never even tried to change
moving 1200 miles away won't solve anything
Track Name: Speakers Circle
if there was a god
i think he'd listen to punk rock
and he'd do everything in his power
to compel you to shut up

but instead you're still here
spewing hate the whole year long
i'm too quiet to say "fuck you" in person
so here: have a song
Track Name: I Just Wanna Pet Yr Dog (alt version)
i know you think we should go on a date
i disagree but i'll still say okay
i'm hoping maybe later we could go back to your place
but not for the reasons you might think

i just wanna pet your dog
i just wanna pet your dog
maybe i could even take him for a walk
i'm sorry if this is weird but i just wanna pet your dog

we're at the restaurant, it's going great
the food is good, we've cleared our plates
now we're at your house on the couch
but i forgot your name and you're telling me to get out

i just wanna pet your dog
i just wanna pet your dog
maybe i could even take him for a walk
i'm sorry if this is weird but i just wanna pet your dog

i just wanna pet your dog
i just wanna pet your dog
maybe i could even take him for a walk
i'm sorry if this is weird but i just wanna pet your dog
