FAQ

Q: "I downloaded music from Bandcamp, now how do I get it into iTunes or Windows Media Player?"

A: "To add music to iTunes, just launch iTunes and choose File > Add To Library. To add music to Windows Media Player, you can either: a) select the audio files, then right click them and choose "Add to Windows Media Player List", or b) drag and drop the audio files onto the Windows Media Player window (if that doesn't work, try the drag/drop operation again, but make sure the Library tab is active in Windows Media Player first)."

Track Name: Plans
Just want to laugh about it. Who wants to talk about what matters, after all? But I wasn’t kidding when I said I thought I saw smoke. And we could probably spend our days all making plans, but what would it mean?

I’ve been told what becomes of the best laid plans of mice and men. But what about the half laid plans? The bulk of them? I bet there’s something there. Yeah.

Just want to laugh about it. Who wants to talk about what matters, after all? Like how much should I care what my future self might think about the choices that my present self is making all the time? Oh, won’t you tell me, brother? Tell me — I just can’t reason it out. Just want to laugh about it. Who wants to talk about what matters, after all? You know, I wasn’t kidding when I said I thought I saw smoke. And we could probably spend our days all making plans, but what would it mean?

I’ve been told what becomes of the best laid plans of mice and men. But what about the half laid plans? The bulk of them? I bet there’s something there. Lain it on the line, you know you could have lain it on the line. Wait, is that right? Please excuse me right now I think I’ve got to go. I’ve got to go, oh, oh, oh. And maybe I’m not the me I was five years ago, but I’m pretty close, and I’m pretty sure that he meant well. Here’s a token of gratitude for all the latitude that he has given me, but it was rather rude not to have thought of me — wait, but I’m part of me.

We’ve got a just cause, just because I really think, oh yeah, we’ve got ourselves, we’ve got a New Rochelle, a New Rochelle, yeah.

We’ve got a just cause, just because I really think, oh yeah, we’ve got ourselves, we’ve got a New Rochelle, a New Rochelle, yeah.
Track Name: The King of Wales
Would your little heart break if I
Told you I was dead?
Might you stop to think by whom those
Very words were said?
Like if I was sleeping, but I
Claimed to be awake, and that I
Was ordained the King of Wales
Upon this very day.

The ceremony kicked off with a
Confusing highbrow speech, so I
Had a laugh, regained composure, then
I sucked on a leech.

Penning a novel all day
Long inside my head.
Some get dismayed at how few
Words of it get read.
Well here’s just one chapter, so con-
gratulations me.
And I was ordained the King of Wales,
From sea to shining sea.
From sea to shining sea.

And no delusions of grandeur could enter my head, I’m too grand.
I think the "bee-est" knees of all must be the workings of some hands.

Oh, it’s like na, na, na-na, na...

And I was ordained the King of Wales,
From sea to shining sea.
Track Name: I Think I've Been Breathing
It’s coming down fast,
They left me enough time to breathe,
But not enough to pack before I go.
I never made time to think
About what I’d pack
If I got asked to kindly go.

I think I’ve been breathing way too slow.
I think I’ve been breathing way too slow.
But what’s the world about,
If there was not a single guard around,
That heard the sound,
The sound that woke up every dog in town.
They couldn’t take it.

[scat]

I heard this time that if they don’t bind my feet,
They’re gonna scar up my back before I go.
Behind those sheets of glass his eyes are
Sunken, full and massive in his skull.

I think I’ve been breathing way too slow.
I think I’ve been breathing way too slow.
But what’s the world about,
If there was not a single guard around,
That heard the sound,
The sound that woke up every dog in town.
They couldn’t take it.

[scat]

I will try, but I will not sacrifice.
I will try, but I will not sacrifice.
Oh babe, I will not sacrifice. No,
I will never, not, nah.

[scat]

I said what you gon’ say,
Cuz I told you once before,
I don’t play that.
I said what you gon’ say,
Cuz I told you once before,
I don’t play that.
I said what you gon’ say,
Cuz I told you once before,
I don’t play that.

[scream]
Track Name: Red Carpet
You really rolled out the red carpet this time.
I rolled over in my grave, and I ain’t even dead.
You really reached for the stars, woah, this time.
I’m planted and looking for water in the soil to get my feet wet.

And I would have liked to walk on your pulp fiction throwback
To old-fashioned notions of navigating the puddles.
I would have liked to touch on the subject of touching the
Object of my affection, who come to think of it, happens to be —

You showed me the shape of a woman this time,
And I knew that it was not the bathroom I sought.
You showed me your hand, and I knew not to walk. You tortured my ears, and I knew it was chalk.
But what of the children who lie there asleep?

And I would have liked to walk on your pulp fiction throwback
To old-fashioned notions of navigating the puddles.
I would have liked to touch on the subject of touching the
Object of my affection, who come to think of it, happens to be
You, you, you.

Free refills he says, free refills he says.
Children are you listening?
What part of this did you think was free?
Free refills he says.
Children are you listening?
What part of this did you think was free?
Free your, free your mind.
What part of this did you think was
Free? Oh yeah.

You really rolled out the red carpet this time.
And I rolled over in my grave, I rolled over in my grave and I, and I,
Ain’t even dead. Woah no. Oh no.
Woah.
Track Name: Extra Gravity
Wanna roll?
I wanna fight about it,
Even though I’m fine without it
I've gotta get some more seasoning.
I’ll sail the Earth for it,
Dispute about the worth of it, and
Dupe them with my trinkets.

Even if you had thought that you had me pegged,
You’d still be wrong.
Cuz I’ve been
Searching the world for a little bit of mustard,
Or maybe a sprinkle of salt.
Been fighting a war about a stick of cinnamon
How could you claim it’s my fault?
I don’t know you don’t know.

And the world will come
Bulging out for me into the sky.
I can’t see it, but I can feel
The extra gravity.
And the girl who has
Fallen in the gaze of my eyes
She can’t feel it, but it’s
1500, got no choice but me.

Wanna roll?
It’s quite the same you see as
Fighting over gasoline,
Except oil doesn’t taste good.
Well maybe olive oil, but not
Popeye the Sailor’s girl,
On second thought, maybe her too.

Even if you had thought that you had me pegged,
You’d still be wrong.
Cuz I’ve been
Searching the world for a little bit of mustard,
Or maybe a sprinkle of salt.
Been fighting a war about a stick of cinnamon
How could you claim it’s my fault?
I don’t know you don’t know.

And the world will come
Bulging out for me into the sky.
I can’t see it, but I can feel
The extra gravity.
And the girl who has
Fallen in the gaze of my eyes
She can’t feel it, but it’s
1500, got no choice but me.

For me, me, oh no my baby doll.
But I said dai dai dai...
