Xanax Paychecks

February 28, 2022 5:11 AM

Kind of a slightly twee sadgirl pop song, of the very trans variety.

Made with my usual collaborator Grandbrother. They provided lyrics, new wave guitar, and structure. I brought the groove, palm muted fender bass, and possibly my vocal a-game. Kinda proud of this one

Lyrics:

Xanax
Paychecks
Clap backs
You
Xanax
Paychecks
Clap backs
You

Girlfriends wondering where you are
Make up running like a foreign car
Tuesday mornings in the dark alone
Keep Forgetting where I left my phone
Staring out of a Volvo window.
Wishing I was somewhere else
Holding onto a certain angle
Just so I can see myself

When I'm running around
Cool shades on
I got no regrets
All day long
When I'm running around
Cool shades on
I got no regrets
It don't last long

Fuckin up my room again
Fuckin up my head
Fall asleep on the floor again
God I miss my bed
Fuckin up my room again
Fuckin up my head
Ill never sleep at your house again
Dont wanna miss your bed

Xanax
Paychecks
Clap backs
You
Xanax
Paychecks
Clap backs
You

Shower speaker playing way too loud
Neighbors mad I need to turn it down
Checking my messages for something sweet
Gonna have to move next week
Pack up my shit and hold my breath
I'm Glad it hasn't hit me yet.
Closet full of vintage dresses
Brave face on, I'm such a mess.

When I'm running around
Cool shades on
I got no regrets
All day long
When I'm running around
Cool shades on
I got no regrets
It don't last long

The melody reminds me of Charly Bliss, which is to say it's awesome.
