hey mister gallows humor,
you hang your punchlines from the highest tree
i hate to seem so nervous
but every noose looks like it fits me
i'd think you were an asshole
if you weren't such a funny guy
you're more afraid of me than i am you
and i don't know why

but we could've had a lot of fun
if that's what you wanted to do
is that what you wanted?

hey misses scenester goddess,
your every move designed to blow my mind
so smooth you're almost sexless
i'm sliding off your kevlar valentine
when i give up all my ghosts
i will miss yours the most
it was my favorite haunt
i'll keep your room just like it was
but i'm boarding it up

'cause we could've had a lot of fun
if that's what you wanted to do
is that what you wanted?

please don't take me too seriously
don't take me too serious
when in doubt just explode
and cut your sugar with lust

You're right, it sounds both jazz and punk. And it sounds good too. Thanks.

Yeah, it is quite nice. At the beginning it sounds a little...loose, I guess. But after the "if that's what you wanted to do" line it gets tighter and it flows really nicely. Cool song, es_de_bah.

And being fake drums it's nice that they are so detailed, instead of having three loops with some breaks.

This is sweet. It reminds me a lot of Koufax (which is a compliment -- they're a great band).

Don't take this as an insult, 'cause it's not: It sounds like prog. Only like DIY prog. If the punk movement had enjoyed prog for its good points instead of hating its pretentious guts, they might have made music like this in 1980 instead of making us wait 27 more years.

"a lawwwt uh fun"

*checks profile*

Ah, Haverhill. I thought as much.

Really cute song! Reminds me of Harvey Danger, slightly. If they were more of a singer-songwriter outfit than a full band.
